Why Your Furnace Could Be Leaking 

Coming home to find water surrounding your furnace is a homeowner’s worst dream. Is it a furnace issue or plumbing problem? It’s hard to say for sure, but Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning is here with some HVAC issues that could result in a leaky furnace. 

Condensation 

Standard-efficiency heating equipment should not give off condensation so if yours does, it might be that the flue pipe was not sized properly. The hot exhaust could be cooling and condensing inside the pipe, then flowing back into your furnace 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 tubing or the floor drain, it could result in a leak around your furnace. A precision tune-up from a furnace repair expert should help avert this problem from taking place. Unfortunately, skipping furnace maintenance may make you end up with a clogged drain, resulting in wall, ceiling, or other damage to your family’s home. 

Humidifier 

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

To make sure your furnace doesn’t spring a leak and that it’s prepared to keep you warm all winter long, call Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning in Philadelphia today.
