Why Your Furnace Could Be Leaking

October 30, 2016

Finding water around your furnace is a homeowner’s nightmare. Is it a furnace issue or plumbing issue? It could be either, 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 heating system 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 in the pipe, then draining back into your furnace and leaking out.

Clogged Drain

Usually condensation from a high-efficiency furnace flows out to a floor drain. If there is an obstruction 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, skipping furnace maintenance could make you end up with a clogged drain, resulting in floor, ceiling, or other damage to your family’s home.

Humidifier

This malfunction should be discovered with regular heating tune-ups, but if your heating equipment is leaking water, the humidifier may be leaking inside the heating system. 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.
