Why Your Furnace Could Be Leaking 

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 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 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 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 a clog in the tubing or the floor drain, it could result in a leak around your furnace. A precision tune-up from a furnace repair contractor should help prevent this problem from occurring. Unfortunately, lack of furnace maintenance may cause a clogged drain, resulting in wall, ceiling, or other damage to the home. 

Humidifier 

This issue should be caught with regular 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 components so it’s best to call your furnace service expert right away if you think this could be your issue.
