Discovering water beneath your furnace is a homeowner’s worst dream. Is it a heating and cooling malfunction or plumbing issue? It’s hard to say for sure, but Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with a few HVAC issues that could cause a leaky furnace.
A standard-efficiency heating system should not give off condensation so if yours does, it could be that the flue pipe was not sized right. The warm exhaust could be cooling and condensing inside the pipe, then flowing back into your furnace and leaking out.
Typically condensation from a high-efficiency furnace will flow out to a floor drain. If there is an obstruction in the line or the floor drain, it could result in a leak around your furnace. A heating tune-up from a furnace repair contractor should help prevent this problem from happening. Unfortunately, neglecting furnace maintenance may make you end up with a clogged drain, resulting in wood, ceiling, or other damage to the home.
This problem should be found with routine heating tune-ups, but if your heating system is leaking water, the humidifier could be leaking inside the heating equipment. Water leaking into your heating equipment can cause serious damage to the internal parts so it’s important to call your furnace service expert 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.
