Why Your Furnace Could Be Leaking 

Coming home to find water surrounding your furnace is a homeowner’s worst dream. Is it a furnace problem or plumbing problem? It’s hard to confirm without an expert doing an inspection, but Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning is here with some HVAC issues that could result in a leaky furnace. 

Condensation 

A standard-efficiency furnace should not produce condensation so if your furnace does, it might be that the flue pipe was not sized correctly. The heated exhaust could be cooling and condensing within 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 piping or the floor drain, it could cause a leak around your heating equipment. A precision tune-up from a furnace repair technician should help prevent this problem from happening. Unfortunately, neglecting furnace maintenance might cause a clogged drain, resulting in floor, ceiling, or other damage to the home. 

Humidifier 

This issue should be caught with regular HVAC system tune-ups, but if your heating equipment is leaking water, the humidifier could be leaking inside the heating system. Water leaking into your furnace can cause a lot of damage to the internal components so it’s ideal to call your furnace service company as soon as possible if you think this may be your issue.
