Why Your Furnace Could Be Leaking 

Coming home to find water beneath your furnace is a homeowner’s worst fear. Is it an HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) malfunction or plumbing problem? It could be either, but Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning is here with a couple HVAC issues that could result in a leaky furnace. 

Condensation 

A standard-efficiency furnace should not produce condensation so if yours does, it could be that the flue pipe was not sized correctly. The heated exhaust could be cooling and condensing in the pipe, then flowing back into the furnace and leaking out. 

Clogged Drain 

Typically condensation from a high-efficiency furnace will flow out to a floor drain. If there is blockage in the line or the floor drain, it could cause a leak around your heating equipment. A heating tune-up from a furnace repair technician should help avoid this problem from happening. Unfortunately, lack of furnace maintenance may cause a clogged drain, resulting in wood, ceiling, or other damage to the home. 

Humidifier 

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

To make sure your heating equipment doesn’t spring a leak and that it’s ready to keep your family warm all winter long, call Stallion Heating and Air Conditioning in Philadelphia today. Our fall promotion is going on now and you can save on a furnace tune-up or qualifying home comfort systems.
