Why is my Gas Furnace Leaking Water

Why Is My Gas Furnace Leaking Water? You May Have Clogged Drains or Tubing

High efficiency gas furnaces produce condensation as a normal part of their operation. What’s not normal is for water to be leaking out of the furnace. All furnaces have a drain pipe taking excess water to a floor drain or outside. If you see that your gas furnace is leaking water, it could be any of the following:

  • Clogged floor drain
  • Clogged condensation tubing
  • Incorrectly sized exhaust pipe
  • Faulty secondary heat exchanger
  • Furnace humidifier problems

Gas furnaceWhile a drainage clog is usually not too difficult to fix, it should be taken care of before it causes property damage. Problems with a heat exchanger are more serious and may mean complicated and pricey repairs. If you have a flow-through humidifier attached to your furnace, it could be the source of the leak. If so, it needs immediate attention. Service technicians from your local ClimateCare member are qualified to diagnose and repair any problems with your heating and cooling system.
