Why Your Furnace Could Be Leaking

October 30, 2016

Discovering water around your furnace is a homeowner’s nightmare. Is it a furnace problem or plumbing problem? It’s hard to confirm without an expert doing an inspection, but Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with some HVAC issues that could be the culprit of a leaky furnace.

Condensation

A standard-efficiency furnace should not give off condensation so if your system does, it might be that the flue pipe was not sized right. The warm exhaust could be cooling and condensing inside the pipe, then flowing back into the furnace and leaking out.

Clogged Drain

Usually condensation from a high-efficiency furnace flows out to a floor drain. If there is a clog in the tubing or the floor drain, it could result in a leak around your heating equipment. A precision tune-up from a furnace repair technician should help avoid this problem from taking place. Unfortunately, lack of furnace maintenance could make you end up with a clogged drain, resulting in wall, ceiling, or other damage to your family’s home.

Humidifier

This malfunction should be discovered with routine heating tune-ups, but if your heating equipment is leaking water, the humidifier may be leaking inside the furnace. Water leaking into your heating equipment can cause major damage to the internal parts 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 equipment doesn’t spring a leak and that it’s prepared to keep your family warm all winter long, call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning in Cocoa today. Our fall promotion is going on until November 25th and you can save on a Precision tune-up or qualifying home comfort systems.
