freon :

Dear JACustomer,

freon :

check the bottom of the unit from the outside and the inside. Does this unit happen to have a composite base? If it does dont worry about the water hurting or rusting it. Now also look into the unit and see if the compressor is sweating. if it is then there is a problem that should be checked out. normally if this happens either the filter is dirty in side the house or the unit is overcharged. freon
