condensation in ac vent


I have a couple of ac vents (closed for the winter) in the ceiling that condensation is building up in, and then dripping out. Does anyone have any suggestions as to why and how to prevent this from happening?
Thanks
Glen

Add more insulation to the supply run in the attic. One of my bedroom registers was dripping this summer and a closer inspection showed dang squirrels chewed their way into the attic and shredded the insulation on that section of duct.

In winter. Seal off the return. And close the supplies.
