There are a few different reasons that a furnace can leak, and when you start to notice this problem, it’s important that you call in the experts for the repair. The necessary furnace repairs range in cost and complexity, and a professional HVAC Technician has advanced equipment for diagnosing the issue and the tools and parts for a complete repair. Here we look at why a leaking furnace can occur and what your next steps should be.
If there is a break or clog in one of your lines, drains, or pipes, condensation will occur around the furnace. Also, if there are pipes and parts that are not the right size for the furnace, condensation can quickly occur and create a problem.
Your humidifier can also cause problems and could be leaking inside the furnace. However, if you had your yearly tune-up on your humidifier, this is an area that will be checked and the technician can detect the issue before it becomes a major problem.
When you have faulty parts, such as the secondary heat exchanger or condensate pump, you’ll start to notice water build up around the furnace. In some cases, a repair will be enough to get your furnace working properly again, while in others a replacement will be necessary.
