Discovering water around your furnace is a homeowner’s worst fear. Is it a furnace issue or plumbing malfunction? It could be either, but Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with a few HVAC issues that could result in a leaky furnace.
Standard-efficiency heating equipment should not give off condensation so if your system does, it might be that the flue pipe was not sized right. The hot exhaust could be cooling and condensing inside the pipe, then flowing back into your furnace and leaking out.
The condensation from a high-efficiency furnace usually flows 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 technician should help prevent this problem from occurring. Unfortunately, lack of furnace maintenance may make you end up with a clogged drain, resulting in wood, ceiling, or other damage to your home.
This malfunction should be caught with regular heating tune-ups, but if your furnace is leaking water, the humidifier might be leaking inside the heating equipment. Water leaking into your heating system can cause a lot of damage to the internal components so it’s best to call your furnace service company as soon as possible if you think this could be your issue.
