Coming home to find water beneath your furnace is a homeowner’s worst dream. Is it an HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) malfunction or plumbing malfunction? It’s hard to confirm without an expert doing an inspection, but Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with a few HVAC issues that could cause a leaky furnace.
A standard-efficiency furnace should not produce condensation so if yours does, it might be that the flue pipe was not sized right. The warm exhaust could be cooling and condensing inside the pipe, then streaming back into your furnace and leaking out.
Typically condensation from a high-efficiency furnace will flow out to a floor drain. If there is a clog in the line or the floor drain, it could cause a leak around your heating system. A seasonal tune-up from a furnace repair contractor should help avert this problem from happening. Unfortunately, neglecting furnace maintenance might cause a clogged drain, resulting in floor, ceiling, or other damage to the home.
This issue should be caught with seasonal furnace tune-ups, but if your heating system is leaking water, the humidifier may be leaking inside the furnace. Water leaking into your heating system can cause major damage to the internal components so it’s important to call your furnace service technician immediately if you think this could be your issue.
To make sure your heating equipment doesn’t spring a leak and that it’s all set to keep your home warm all winter long, call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing in the U.S. today. Our fall promotion is happening now and you can save on a furnace tune-up or qualifying home comfort systems.
