Why Your Furnace Could Be Leaking 

Finding water beneath 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 some HVAC issues that could result in a leaky furnace. 

Condensation 

Standard-efficiency heating equipment should not produce condensation so if yours does, it may be that the flue pipe was not sized properly. The heated exhaust could be cooling and condensing inside the pipe, then streaming back into your furnace and leaking out. 

Clogged Drain 

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 heating equipment. A precision tune-up from a furnace repair contractor should help avoid this problem from happening. Unfortunately, lack of furnace maintenance may result in a clogged drain, resulting in floor, ceiling, or other damage to the home. 

Humidifier 

This malfunction should be caught with seasonal heating tune-ups, but if your furnace is leaking water, the humidifier may be leaking inside the furnace. Water leaking into your heating system can cause major damage to the internal elements so it’s best to call your furnace service company immediately if you think this might be your issue.
