Locate source of leaking water. Put down towels to soak up puddled water, or use the wet/dry vacuum if water is excessive.
Locate the end of the drain line on the outside of the house. This can usually be found near the outside part of the A/C. Suck out dirt and grime from the drain line with the wet/dry vacuum cleaner.
If unit continues to leak, you should contact your A/C repair person as the problem is probably coming from the inside of the unit and requires professional attention.
Things You Will Need
