Help! water pools on the concrete floor in my basement my furnace/central air unit - only after the AC has been on. I have central air/heat. The furnace and house is only 9 years old.

The air filter is wet, so it appears that water is dripping down on the inside of the furnace. The water appears clear. The air conditioning works just fine - I am just concerned that there is something very wrong! The plastic tube that leads from the furnace/central air to the floor drain appears dry.

Thanks for any advice!

You may have either a clogged drain, cracked drain pan on the A-coil. Try to carefully remove your drain line and clean it out. You may be able to remove the front inspection cover on the coil box. Take a flashlight and inspect for any cracks in the pan. If this does not resolve, you may have a cracked pan. A lot of manufacturers use plastic pan and fatique over time and hair-line crack. This is best handled by an experienced tech. Good Luck.
