Finding water around your furnace is a homeowner’s nightmare. Is it an HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) problem or plumbing problem? It could be either, but Strand Brothers Service Experts is here with some HVAC issues that could be the culprit of a leaky furnace.
A standard-efficiency furnace should not have condensation so if yours does, it could be that the flue pipe was not sized properly. The hot exhaust could be cooling and condensing in the pipe, then streaming back into the furnace and leaking out.
The condensation from a high-efficiency furnace usually flows out to a floor drain. If there is a clog in the tubing or the floor drain, it could be the culprit of a leak around your furnace. A precision tune-up from a furnace repair contractor should help prevent this problem from occurring. Unfortunately, skipping furnace maintenance may cause a clogged drain, resulting in wood, ceiling, or other damage to the home.
This issue should be found with routine heating tune-ups, but if your furnace is leaking water, the humidifier may be leaking inside the furnace. Water leaking into your furnace can cause a lot of damage to the internal elements so it’s ideal to call your furnace service company right away if you think this could be your issue.
To make sure your furnace doesn’t spring a leak and that it’s all set to keep you warm all winter long, call Strand Brothers Service Experts in Austin today. Our fall promotion is going on now and you can save on a Precision tune-up or qualifying home comfort systems.
