Coming home to find water around your furnace is a homeowner’s worst fear. Is it a furnace issue 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 be the culprit of a leaky furnace.
Standard-efficiency heating equipment should not have condensation so if yours does, it might be that the flue pipe was not sized right. The hot exhaust could be cooling and condensing inside the pipe, then streaming back into your furnace and leaking out.
The condensation from a high-efficiency furnace usually flows out to a floor drain. If there is blockage in the line or the floor drain, it could result in a leak around your furnace. A precision tune-up from a furnace repair expert should help avert this problem from taking place. Unfortunately, neglecting furnace maintenance could result in a clogged drain, resulting in wall, ceiling, or other damage to your family’s home.
This issue should be found with routine HVAC system tune-ups, but if your heating equipment is leaking water, the humidifier may be leaking inside the heating equipment. Water leaking into your heating equipment can cause major damage to the internal parts so it’s best to call your furnace service technician as soon as possible if you think this might be your issue.
To make sure your furnace doesn’t spring a leak and that it’s prepared to keep your family warm all winter long, call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing in the U.S. today. Our fall promotion is going on now and you can save on a furnace tune-up or qualifying HVAC systems.
