Why Your Furnace Could Be Leaking

October 30, 2016

Coming home to find water beneath your furnace is a homeowner’s worst dream. Is it a furnace problem or plumbing malfunction? It’s hard to say for sure, but All American Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning is here with a few HVAC issues that could result in a leaky furnace.

Condensation

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

Clogged Drain

Typically condensation from a high-efficiency furnace will flow out to a floor drain. If there is a clog in the tubing or the floor drain, it could cause a leak around your furnace. A seasonal tune-up from a furnace repair contractor should help prevent this problem from occurring. Unfortunately, lack of furnace maintenance may cause a clogged drain, resulting in wood, ceiling, or other damage to the home.

Humidifier

This issue should be discovered with seasonal furnace tune-ups, but if your heating equipment is leaking water, the humidifier might be leaking inside the heating equipment. 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 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 your family warm all winter long, call All American Air Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning in Daytona Beach today.
