Why Your Furnace Could Be Leaking 

Coming home to find water surrounding your furnace is a homeowner’s worst fear. Is it a furnace malfunction or plumbing problem? It’s hard to confirm without an expert doing an inspection, but Stevenson Service Experts is here with a couple HVAC issues that could be the culprit of a leaky furnace. 

Condensation 

A standard-efficiency furnace should not have condensation so if yours does, it could 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 

Usually condensation from a high-efficiency furnace flows out to a floor drain. If there is blockage in the piping or the floor drain, it could result in a leak around your heating equipment. A heating tune-up from a furnace repair contractor should help prevent this problem from taking place. Unfortunately, lack of furnace maintenance could result in a clogged drain, resulting in floor, ceiling, or other damage to your family’s home. 

Humidifier 

This problem should be discovered with regular 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 equipment can cause serious damage to the internal elements so it’s important to call your furnace service expert as soon as possible 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 going on until November 25th and you can save on a furnace tune-up or qualifying HVAC systems.
