    Drip off AC Interior Coil

    If you look up into the AC after removing the vent, the A shape of the coil is dripping about half way down in the middle. The drain line is not clogged. I have a large air compressor and blew it out, air comes ripping out the drain line outside, so that's clear. Dirty coil?
