Coming home to find water surrounding your furnace is a homeowner’s worst dream. Is it a heating and cooling problem or plumbing malfunction? It could be either, but Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with some HVAC issues that could cause a leaky furnace.
A standard-efficiency heating system should not produce condensation so if your furnace does, it may be that the flue pipe was not sized properly. The heated exhaust could be cooling and condensing inside the pipe, then draining back into your furnace and leaking out.
The condensation from a high-efficiency furnace usually flows out to a floor drain. If there is an obstruction in the piping or the floor drain, it could be the culprit of a leak around your furnace. A seasonal tune-up from a furnace repair expert should help avert this problem from occurring. Unfortunately, neglecting furnace maintenance may cause a clogged drain, resulting in wood, ceiling, or other damage to the home.
This problem should be discovered with regular furnace tune-ups, but if your heating equipment is leaking water, the humidifier may be leaking inside the heating system. Water leaking into your furnace can cause serious damage to the internal components so it’s ideal to call your furnace service company as soon as possible if you think this may be your issue.
To make sure your furnace doesn’t spring a leak and that it’s ready to keep your home warm all winter long, call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing in the U.S. today.
