Why Your Furnace Could Be Leaking 

Finding water beneath your furnace is a homeowner’s worst fear. Is it an HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) malfunction 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 

Standard-efficiency heating equipment should not produce condensation so if your system does, it could be that the flue pipe was not sized right. The hot exhaust could be cooling and condensing within the pipe, then flowing back into the furnace and leaking out. 

Clogged Drain 

The condensation from a high-efficiency furnace usually flows out to a floor drain. If there is an obstruction in the line or the floor drain, it could result in a leak around your heating equipment. A heating tune-up from a furnace repair expert should help avoid this problem from happening. Unfortunately, neglecting furnace maintenance could make you end up with a clogged drain, resulting in wood, ceiling, or other damage to your family’s home. 

Humidifier 

This malfunction should be caught with routine furnace tune-ups, but if your heating equipment is leaking water, the humidifier may be leaking inside the heating equipment. Water leaking into your heating equipment can cause major damage to the internal elements so it’s ideal to call your furnace service expert right away if you think this may be your issue. 

To make sure your heating equipment doesn’t spring a leak and that it’s ready to keep you warm all winter long, call Stevenson Service Experts in Columbus today. Our fall promotion is happening now and you can save on a Precision tune-up or qualifying heating and air conditioning systems.
