Finding water beneath your furnace is a homeowner’s nightmare. Is it a furnace problem or plumbing problem? It’s hard to confirm without an expert doing an inspection, but Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a few HVAC issues that could result in a leaky furnace.
Standard-efficiency heating equipment should not produce condensation so if your furnace does, it could be that the flue pipe was not sized right. The heated exhaust could be cooling and condensing in the pipe, then streaming back into the furnace and leaking out.
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 system. A seasonal tune-up from a furnace repair expert should help avert this problem from taking place. Unfortunately, skipping furnace maintenance may cause a clogged drain, resulting in wall, ceiling, or other damage to your family’s home.
This issue should be found with seasonal HVAC system tune-ups, but if your furnace is leaking water, the humidifier may be leaking inside the heating system. Water leaking into your heating equipment can cause serious damage to the internal components so it’s important to call your furnace service expert as soon as possible if you think this could be your issue.
To make sure your heating equipment doesn’t spring a leak and that it’s prepared to keep you warm all winter long, call Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning in Miami today.
