Why Your Furnace Could Be Leaking 

Discovering water beneath your furnace is a homeowner’s nightmare. Is it an HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) issue or plumbing issue? It’s hard to say for sure, but Stevenson Service Experts is here with some HVAC issues that could result in a leaky furnace. 

Condensation 

A standard-efficiency heating system should not give off condensation so if yours does, it may be that the flue pipe was not sized right. The hot exhaust could be cooling and condensing inside the pipe, then draining back into the furnace and leaking out. 

Clogged Drain 

The condensation from a high-efficiency furnace usually flows out to a floor drain. If there is blockage in the line or the floor drain, it could cause a leak around your heating system. A heating tune-up from a furnace repair contractor should help avoid this problem from taking place. Unfortunately, skipping furnace maintenance could make you end up with a clogged drain, resulting in wood, ceiling, or other damage to your home. 

Humidifier 

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