Coming home to find water beneath your furnace is a homeowner’s worst fear. 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 few HVAC issues that could cause a leaky furnace.
Standard-efficiency heating equipment should not have condensation so if your furnace does, it might be that the flue pipe was not sized properly. The heated exhaust could be cooling and condensing in the pipe, then streaming back into your heating equipment 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 be the culprit of a leak around your heating equipment. A precision tune-up from a furnace repair technician should help avert this problem from happening. Unfortunately, lack of furnace maintenance might result in a clogged drain, resulting in wood, ceiling, or other damage to the home.
This malfunction should be caught with routine heating tune-ups, but if your heating system is leaking water, the humidifier may be leaking inside the furnace. Water leaking into your heating equipment can cause a lot of damage to the internal components so it’s important to call your furnace service expert as soon as possible if you think this may be your issue.
To make sure your heating system doesn’t spring a leak and that it’s prepared to keep you warm all winter long, call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing in the U.S. today. Our fall promotion is happening now and you can save on a furnace tune-up or qualifying home comfort systems.
