Discovering water around your furnace is a homeowner’s worst dream. Is it a furnace malfunction or plumbing malfunction? It could be either, but Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with a couple HVAC issues that could result in a leaky furnace.
A standard-efficiency heating system should not produce condensation so if yours does, it may be that the flue pipe was not sized correctly. The hot exhaust could be cooling and condensing within the pipe, then draining back into your heating equipment and leaking out.
The condensation from a high-efficiency furnace usually flows out to a floor drain. If there is an obstruction in the piping or the floor drain, it could cause a leak around your furnace. A heating tune-up from a furnace repair contractor should help avert this problem from occurring. Unfortunately, lack of furnace maintenance could make you end up with a clogged drain, resulting in wall, ceiling, or other damage to your family’s home.
This issue should be found with routine furnace tune-ups, but if your furnace is leaking water, the humidifier could be leaking inside the heating system. Water leaking into your furnace can cause major damage to the internal parts so it’s important to call your furnace service company immediately if you think this could be your issue.
To make sure your heating system doesn’t spring a leak and that it’s prepared to keep you warm all winter long, call Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing in the U.S. today. Our fall promotion is happening now and you can save on a fall tune-up or qualifying heating and air conditioning systems.
