Finding water beneath your furnace is a homeowner’s worst fear. Is it a heating and cooling malfunction or plumbing problem? It’s hard to confirm without an expert doing an inspection, 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 furnace does, it might be that the flue pipe was not sized properly. The warm exhaust could be cooling and condensing inside 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 piping or the floor drain, it could result in a leak around your heating system. A seasonal tune-up from a furnace repair technician should help avoid this problem from taking place. Unfortunately, lack of furnace maintenance may make you end up with a clogged drain, resulting in wall, ceiling, or other damage to your home.
This issue should be caught with seasonal 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 components so it’s important to call your furnace service company as soon as possible if you think this may be your issue.
