Coming home to find water surrounding your furnace is a homeowner’s worst fear. Is it a furnace malfunction or plumbing problem? It’s hard to say for sure, but Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with some HVAC issues that could result in a leaky furnace.
A standard-efficiency heating system should not have condensation so if your system does, it might be that the flue pipe was not sized right. The heated exhaust could be cooling and condensing in the pipe, then draining back into your furnace and leaking out.
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 seasonal tune-up from a furnace repair contractor should help prevent this problem from taking place. Unfortunately, skipping furnace maintenance may cause a clogged drain, resulting in wood, ceiling, or other damage to your family’s home.
This problem should be caught with regular furnace tune-ups, but if your heating system is leaking water, the humidifier may be leaking inside the heating system. Water leaking into your heating equipment can cause a lot of damage to the internal elements so it’s important to call your furnace service technician immediately if you think this might be your issue.
To make sure your heating equipment doesn’t spring a leak and that it’s prepared 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 HVAC systems.
