Why Your Furnace Could Be Leaking 

Coming home to find water around your furnace is a homeowner’s worst dream. Is it a heating and cooling malfunction or plumbing problem? It could be either, but Stevenson Service Experts is here with a couple HVAC issues that could cause a leaky furnace. 

Condensation 

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

Clogged Drain 

Usually condensation from a high-efficiency furnace flows out to a floor drain. If there is a clog in the line or the floor drain, it could cause a leak around your heating equipment. A precision tune-up from a furnace repair expert should help avoid this problem from occurring. Unfortunately, skipping furnace maintenance may result in a clogged drain, resulting in wood, ceiling, or other damage to your family’s home. 

Humidifier 

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

To make sure your heating system doesn’t spring a leak and that it’s ready to keep your home warm all winter long, call Stevenson Service Experts in Columbus today. Our fall promotion is happening now and you can save on a Precision tune-up or qualifying HVAC systems.
