Not super knowledgeable about this stuff but this is what I know:

I believe the a/c has a pipe in attic that leads to outside in middle if house. The water drips a lot on really hot days and a tech did a review of system when buying house in February...so I don't think anything is wrong with system, it's just doing it's job.

My problem is it runs down the siding onto shingles below it and us turning the siding and shingles yellow. It's about a 5ft diameter ywllow patch. So how can I redirect this water to the side of the house or somewhere other than on siding and shingles?
Thanks!

Add to that pipe with some pvc pipe. May want to get a HVAC guy or plumber to do it as it will need securing to the house also.

Are you sure that's not the emergency drain from the secondary pan? Take a look in your attic and make sure you cant see any water under the system

as suggested just continue it down to the ground and elbow out brick under it and your good....might consider a secondary pan"OVER FLOW" under your air handler pipe it out over the kitchen window"america spends 75% of ther lives in the kitchen dripping over the window:eek:...drop the drink and run up to the attic....or your frront stoop.when that first pipe is banging the water out your home should be cool..never ever see water on that other pipe.1" pan under your air handler 4'x4' boocu water and as gravity goes it runs down the walls consider it...:whistling2:
