    Well, something isn't right. The act of cooling the air removes moisture.

    At the bottom of the evaporator in the furnace is a drain pan. This is connected to a drain. The drain may have a condensate pump on it. This drain may be plugged.

    High moisture areas will also cause the metal duct to sweat which can look like water coming out of the duct.
