Why Your Furnace Could Be Leaking

October 30, 2016

Discovering water around your furnace is a homeowner’s nightmare. Is it a furnace problem or plumbing issue? It’s hard to confirm without an expert doing an inspection, but TML Service Experts is here with some HVAC issues that could result in a leaky furnace.

Condensation

A standard-efficiency heating system should not have condensation so if your system 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

Typically condensation from a high-efficiency furnace will flow out to a floor drain. If there is an obstruction 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, skipping furnace maintenance might result in a clogged drain, resulting in floor, ceiling, or other damage to your home.

Humidifier

This problem should be caught with routine 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 furnace can cause a lot of damage to the internal elements so it’s ideal to call your furnace service company right away if you think this might be your issue.
