Why Your Furnace Could Be Leaking 

Finding water surrounding your furnace is a homeowner’s worst fear. Is it a furnace malfunction or plumbing malfunction? It’s hard to confirm without an expert doing an inspection, but Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with a few HVAC issues that could be the culprit of a leaky furnace. 

Condensation 

A standard-efficiency furnace should not have condensation so if your furnace does, it could be that the flue pipe was not sized correctly. The hot exhaust could be cooling and condensing inside the pipe, then draining back into your heating equipment and leaking out. 

Clogged Drain 

Usually condensation from a high-efficiency furnace flows out to a floor drain. If there is blockage in the line or the floor drain, it could be the culprit of a leak around your heating system. A precision tune-up from a furnace repair contractor should help avoid this problem from occurring. Unfortunately, lack of furnace maintenance might make you end up with a clogged drain, resulting in wall, ceiling, or other damage to your family’s home. 

Humidifier 

This issue should be discovered with regular heating tune-ups, but if your heating equipment is leaking water, the humidifier could be leaking inside the furnace. Water leaking into your heating equipment can cause a lot of damage to the internal elements so it’s best to call your furnace service company immediately if you think this might be your issue.
