Why Your Furnace Could Be Leaking 

Finding water surrounding your furnace is a homeowner’s worst fear. Is it an HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) malfunction 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 cause a leaky furnace. 

Condensation 

A standard-efficiency furnace should not give off condensation so if your system does, it might be that the flue pipe was not sized properly. The heated exhaust could be cooling and condensing within the pipe, then streaming back into the furnace and leaking out. 

Clogged Drain 

Usually condensation from a high-efficiency furnace flows out to a floor drain. If there is an obstruction in the line or the floor drain, it could cause a leak around your heating equipment. A seasonal tune-up from a furnace repair contractor should help avoid this problem from occurring. Unfortunately, lack of furnace maintenance may result in a clogged drain, resulting in floor, ceiling, or other damage to your home. 

Humidifier 

This malfunction should be found with seasonal HVAC system tune-ups, but if your heating equipment is leaking water, the humidifier might be leaking inside the heating equipment. Water leaking into your furnace can cause major damage to the internal components so it’s important to call your furnace service technician as soon as possible if you think this could be your issue.
