Why Your Furnace Could Be Leaking 

Finding water around your furnace is a homeowner’s worst fear. Is it an HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) malfunction or plumbing issue? It could be either, but Stevenson Service Experts is here with a few HVAC issues that could result in a leaky furnace. 

Condensation 

Standard-efficiency heating equipment should not have condensation so if yours does, it may be that the flue pipe was not sized correctly. The hot exhaust could be cooling and condensing in the pipe, then draining back into your furnace 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 heating system. A seasonal tune-up from a furnace repair technician should help prevent this problem from occurring. Unfortunately, skipping furnace maintenance may result in a clogged drain, resulting in wall, ceiling, or other damage to your home. 

Humidifier 

This malfunction should be found with routine HVAC system tune-ups, but if your heating system is leaking water, the humidifier might be leaking inside the heating system. Water leaking into your furnace can cause major damage to the internal elements so it’s ideal to call your furnace service company as soon as possible if you think this may be your issue. 

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