Why Your Furnace Could Be Leaking

October 30, 2016

Finding water surrounding your furnace is a homeowner’s worst dream. Is it a furnace problem or plumbing problem? It’s hard to confirm without an expert doing an inspection, but TML Service Experts is here with a few HVAC issues that could result in a leaky furnace.

Condensation

A standard-efficiency heating system should not produce condensation so if yours does, it might be that the flue pipe was not sized right. The heated exhaust could be cooling and condensing within the pipe, then streaming back into your heating equipment 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 piping or the floor drain, it could result in a leak around your heating equipment. A seasonal tune-up from a furnace repair technician should help avert this problem from taking place. Unfortunately, lack of furnace maintenance might result in a clogged drain, resulting in floor, ceiling, or other damage to the home.

Humidifier

This problem should be found with regular HVAC system tune-ups, but if your heating equipment is leaking water, the humidifier may be leaking inside the heating system. Water leaking into your heating system can cause a lot of damage to the internal elements so it’s best to call your furnace service company right away if you think this might be your issue.
