water dripping from vents

We went out and install a new compressor at a tire store, and everything was working great for a few weeks until it got really hot. Now water is dripping from the vents. We checked the coil it does not appear to be throwing it down the duct work and the drain is working. I cant see all the duct work but it does not appear to be leaking down the whole truck line, so I assume the actual duct is not sweating only the vents. I want to tell them to but new insulated vents, but I am not sure that will fix the problem. Any cluse?

Re: water dripping from vents

I would say that would be the way to go with the insulated vents. We sometimes use that spray foam installation for ducts that have just alittle metal out of insulation that usually does the trick but Id recommend insulated registers. Good luck.

Re: water dripping from vents

Start with the basics. Insulate the grilles, while up there check for leaks in the ductwork and if you find any seal them. Also check that you outside air is set properly and hasn't been closed to keep the humidity pushed out of the space when the doors open.

Re: water dripping from vents

This might be the problem: If condensation accumulates within the air vent, it can cause water to drip from the AC vents. ... Sometimes when systems are installed in these areas, problems with the condensate drain can cause water to overflow from the drip pan and into the air ducts or air vents.
