Discovering water beneath your furnace is a homeowner’s nightmare. Is it an HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) malfunction or plumbing problem? It’s hard to say for sure, but Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with a few HVAC issues that could result in a leaky furnace.
A standard-efficiency heating system should not give off condensation so if your furnace does, it may be that the flue pipe was not sized correctly. The warm exhaust could be cooling and condensing within the pipe, then draining back into your furnace and leaking out.
Typically condensation from a high-efficiency furnace will flow out to a floor drain. If there is an obstruction in the piping or the floor drain, it could result in a leak around your heating equipment. A heating tune-up from a furnace repair contractor should help avert this problem from taking place. Unfortunately, neglecting furnace maintenance may result in a clogged drain, resulting in wood, ceiling, or other damage to the home.
This problem should be discovered with regular furnace tune-ups, but if your furnace is leaking water, the humidifier might be leaking inside the heating system. Water leaking into your heating system can cause serious damage to the internal elements so it’s best to call your furnace service company as soon as possible if you think this could be your issue.
