Why Your Furnace Could Be Leaking 

Coming home to find water beneath your furnace is a homeowner’s worst dream. Is it a heating and cooling issue or plumbing malfunction? It’s hard to say for sure, but Stevenson Service Experts is here with a couple HVAC issues that could be the culprit of a leaky furnace. 

Condensation 

A standard-efficiency heating system should not produce condensation so if your furnace does, it may be that the flue pipe was not sized right. The heated exhaust could be cooling and condensing inside the pipe, then flowing 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 line 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, neglecting furnace maintenance could result in a clogged drain, resulting in wood, ceiling, or other damage to your family’s home. 

Humidifier 

This malfunction should be caught with regular furnace tune-ups, but if your heating equipment is leaking water, the humidifier could be leaking inside the heating equipment. Water leaking into your heating system can cause a lot of damage to the internal parts so it’s best to call your furnace service technician 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 going on until November 25th and you can save on a Precision tune-up or qualifying HVAC systems.
