Why Is My Furnace Leaking Water ?

So you’ve gone down to the basement to check on your furnace only to see a puddle of water spreading across the floor beneath it. The prospect of your furnace breaking down and leaving you without any hope of heat in the freezing winter isn’t a good one, and you’ll probably start to get more than a little nervous at the sight of a leaky furnace. It can be difficult to tell exactly why a furnace is leaking water, but if you’ve noticed the problem, here are some possible explanations.


In high-efficiency furnaces, the airflow will create naturally-occurring condensation that comes from the changes in air temperature. If your high-efficiency furnace appears to be leaking, it could be a sign that the tubing inside is damaged or isn’t properly sealed. Furnaces that aren’t high-efficiency aren’t prone to having condensation, so if you have a normal-efficiency furnace leaking water, this could be a sign of a bigger problem. A qualified furnace repair contractor can help you determine the source of the problem and the best way to get it fixed.


If you’ve got a malfunctioning humidifier in your system, it could end up causing a water buildup that would cause a leak. It’s something that a furnace repair contractor would find while doing a regular inspection, but if you haven’t gotten your inspection taken care of in some time, a humidifier problem could have gone unnoticed. Make sure to get this problem taken care of in a timely fashion, as it could cause serious damage to your system over time.
