Finding water surrounding your furnace is a homeowner’s worst dream. Is it a furnace issue or plumbing malfunction? 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 be the culprit of a leaky furnace.
Standard-efficiency heating equipment should not produce 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 in the pipe, then flowing 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 tubing or the floor drain, it could result in a leak around your furnace. A seasonal tune-up from a furnace repair contractor should help prevent this problem from happening. Unfortunately, skipping furnace maintenance might make you end up with a clogged drain, resulting in wood, ceiling, or other damage to your family’s home.
This problem should be discovered with regular 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 system can cause major damage to the internal elements so it’s ideal to call your furnace service expert immediately if you think this could be your issue.
To make sure your heating system doesn’t spring a leak and that it’s ready to keep your home 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 fall tune-up or qualifying heating and air conditioning systems.
