Discovering water around your furnace is a homeowner’s worst fear. Is it a heating and cooling issue or plumbing problem? It could be either, but Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with a few HVAC issues that could cause a leaky furnace.
A standard-efficiency furnace should not give off condensation so if your furnace does, it may be that the flue pipe was not sized correctly. The hot exhaust could be cooling and condensing inside the pipe, then flowing back into your furnace and leaking out.
The condensation from a high-efficiency furnace usually flows out to a floor drain. If there is an obstruction in the tubing or the floor drain, it could cause a leak around your heating system. A heating tune-up from a furnace repair expert should help avert this problem from happening. Unfortunately, lack of furnace maintenance may result in a clogged drain, resulting in floor, ceiling, or other damage to the home.
This problem should be caught with routine heating tune-ups, but if your furnace is leaking water, the humidifier might be leaking inside the heating equipment. Water leaking into your heating system can cause serious damage to the internal parts so it’s ideal to call your furnace service company immediately if you think this might be your issue.
To make sure your heating system doesn’t spring a leak and that it’s ready to keep your family warm all winter long, call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing in the U.S. today.
