Why Your Furnace Could Be Leaking

October 30, 2016

Discovering water around your furnace is a homeowner’s nightmare. Is it a furnace issue or plumbing problem? It’s hard to say for sure, but Winnipeg Supply Service Experts is here with a couple HVAC issues that could be the culprit of a leaky furnace.

Condensation

Standard-efficiency heating equipment should not have condensation so if your system does, it could be that the flue pipe was not sized properly. The warm exhaust could be cooling and condensing within the pipe, then flowing back into your heating equipment 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 tubing or the floor drain, it could result in a leak around your heating equipment. A seasonal tune-up from a furnace repair technician should help prevent this problem from taking place. Unfortunately, skipping furnace maintenance could make you end up with a clogged drain, resulting in wall, ceiling, or other damage to the home.

Humidifier

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

To make sure your heating system doesn’t spring a leak and that it’s prepared to keep your home warm all winter long, call Winnipeg Supply Service Experts in Winnipeg today. Our fall promotion is going on until November 25th and you can save on a furnace tune-up or qualifying heating and air conditioning systems.
