Discovering water beneath your furnace is a homeowner’s worst dream. Is it a furnace malfunction or plumbing malfunction? It’s hard to say for sure, but Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with a couple HVAC issues that could be the culprit of a leaky furnace.
A standard-efficiency furnace should not produce condensation so if your system does, it could be that the flue pipe was not sized properly. The warm exhaust could be cooling and condensing in the pipe, then draining back into your heating equipment and leaking out.
The condensation from a high-efficiency furnace usually flows out to a floor drain. If there is a clog in the line or the floor drain, it could result in a leak around your furnace. A precision tune-up from a furnace repair expert should help avert this problem from happening. Unfortunately, lack of furnace maintenance may cause a clogged drain, resulting in wood, ceiling, or other damage to your family’s home.
This malfunction should be discovered with regular 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 major damage to the internal elements so it’s important to call your furnace service company as soon as possible if you think this could be your issue.
