Why Your Furnace Could Be Leaking 

Finding water surrounding your furnace is a homeowner’s worst fear. Is it an HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) problem or plumbing problem? It’s hard to say for sure, but Stevenson Service Experts is here with a few HVAC issues that could result in a leaky furnace. 

Condensation 

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

Clogged Drain 

Typically condensation from a high-efficiency furnace will flow out to a floor drain. If there is an obstruction in the piping or the floor drain, it could result in a leak around your furnace. A seasonal tune-up from a furnace repair contractor should help avoid this problem from taking place. Unfortunately, skipping furnace maintenance might result in a clogged drain, resulting in wood, ceiling, or other damage to your family’s home. 

Humidifier 

This malfunction should be found with seasonal heating tune-ups, but if your furnace is leaking water, the humidifier might be leaking inside the furnace. Water leaking into your furnace can cause a lot of damage to the internal components so it’s best to call your furnace service company right away if you think this could be your issue. 

To make sure your furnace doesn’t spring a leak and that it’s ready to keep your family 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.
