Why Your Furnace Could Be Leaking
Finding water around your furnace is a homeowner’s nightmare. Is it a heating and cooling malfunction or plumbing malfunction? It’s hard to confirm without an expert doing an inspection, but Winnipeg Supply Service Experts is here with a few HVAC issues that could result in a leaky furnace.
A standard-efficiency furnace should not produce condensation so if your furnace does, it may be that the flue pipe was not sized correctly. The warm exhaust could be cooling and condensing in the pipe, then streaming back into your heating equipment and leaking out.
Typically condensation from a high-efficiency furnace will flow out to a floor drain. If there is a clog 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 occurring. Unfortunately, skipping furnace maintenance could result in a clogged drain, resulting in floor, ceiling, or other damage to your home.
This issue should be found with routine HVAC system tune-ups, but if your furnace is leaking water, the humidifier could be leaking inside the heating system. Water leaking into your heating system can cause major damage to the internal parts so it’s ideal to call your furnace service company as soon as possible if you think this may be your issue.
