Hey all, so I just noticed this today, but it seems like the water drips out significantly when the AC is on for me. I know air conditioners cause this to begin with but it was really coming down under the car more than I’ve ever seen before and wondered if this could be attributed to anything else.

Anyone else have a similar thought?

What you are seeing is latent heat, it is a direct result of how efficient the ac, is working on your system. The condensate,water is humidity taken from the air in the form of heat. The more humidity the more heat in the air.
