Why Your Furnace Could Be Leaking 

Discovering water around your furnace is a homeowner’s worst fear. Is it a heating and cooling problem or plumbing problem? 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 result in a leaky furnace. 

Condensation 

A standard-efficiency heating system should not give off 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 streaming back into your furnace and leaking out. 

Clogged Drain 

Typically condensation from a high-efficiency furnace will flow out to a floor drain. If there is a clog in the tubing or the floor drain, it could cause a leak around your heating system. A precision tune-up from a furnace repair contractor should help prevent this problem from happening. Unfortunately, lack of furnace maintenance could cause a clogged drain, resulting in wood, ceiling, or other damage to your home. 

Humidifier 

This issue should be discovered with regular furnace tune-ups, but if your heating system is leaking water, the humidifier may be leaking inside the furnace. Water leaking into your heating equipment can cause serious damage to the internal parts so it’s ideal to call your furnace service expert immediately if you think this could be your issue.
