Why Your Furnace Could Be Leaking 

Finding water beneath your furnace is a homeowner’s worst fear. Is it a furnace issue or plumbing problem? It’s hard to say for sure, but Service Experts Heating, Air Conditioning & Plumbing is here with a few HVAC issues that could result in a leaky furnace. 

Condensation 

A standard-efficiency furnace should not produce condensation so if your system does, it could be that the flue pipe was not sized properly. The heated exhaust could be cooling and condensing within the pipe, then draining back into your heating equipment and leaking out. 

Clogged Drain 

Typically condensation from a high-efficiency furnace will flow out to a floor drain. If there is a clog in the piping or the floor drain, it could result in a leak around your heating system. A precision tune-up from a furnace repair expert should help avoid this problem from occurring. Unfortunately, skipping furnace maintenance may make you end up with a clogged drain, resulting in wall, ceiling, or other damage to the home. 

Humidifier 

This problem should be caught with routine heating tune-ups, but if your heating system is leaking water, the humidifier could be leaking inside the furnace. Water leaking into your furnace can cause major damage to the internal elements so it’s ideal to call your furnace service expert right away if you think this might be your issue.
