Finding water beneath your furnace is a homeowner’s worst fear. Is it a furnace issue or plumbing issue? It could be either, but Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with a couple HVAC issues that could result in a leaky furnace.
A standard-efficiency furnace should not have condensation so if your system does, it might be that the flue pipe was not sized properly. The heated exhaust could be cooling and condensing inside the pipe, then streaming back into the 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 tubing or the floor drain, it could cause a leak around your furnace. A precision tune-up from a furnace repair contractor should help prevent this problem from taking place. Unfortunately, lack of furnace maintenance may result in a clogged drain, resulting in wood, ceiling, or other damage to the home.
This malfunction should be found with routine HVAC system tune-ups, but if your furnace is leaking water, the humidifier might be leaking inside the heating system. Water leaking into your furnace can cause a lot of damage to the internal elements so it’s ideal to call your furnace service company right away if you think this might be your issue.
To make sure your furnace doesn’t spring a leak and that it’s prepared to keep your family warm all winter long, call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing in the U.S. today.
