Coming home to find water surrounding your furnace is a homeowner’s worst dream. Is it a heating and cooling problem 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 produce condensation so if your system does, it may be that the flue pipe was not sized properly. The hot exhaust could be cooling and condensing within the pipe, then streaming back into your furnace and leaking out.
Typically condensation from a high-efficiency furnace will flow out to a floor drain. If there is blockage in the piping or the floor drain, it could cause a leak around your furnace. A heating tune-up from a furnace repair technician should help prevent this problem from occurring. Unfortunately, lack of furnace maintenance might result in a clogged drain, resulting in wood, ceiling, or other damage to the home.
This problem 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 system can cause major damage to the internal components so it’s important to call your furnace service expert immediately if you think this may be your issue.
To make sure your heating system 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 going on now and you can save on a furnace tune-up or qualifying HVAC systems.
