Your Drain can be clogged
Condensation from high efficiency furnaces will flow to the floor drain or through the drain pump. If the line or the floor drain get clogged this will prevent condensation from flowing out and will create the leak around the furnace and under it. Annual tuning up and maintenance helps to prevent furnace leaking but neglecting furnace maintenance can cause damages to flooring, ceiling or other damages to your home. If you notice your furnace leaking remove the drain hose and clean it and if this doesn’t help then call DeMark Home Ontario for a service.
If your furnace is leaking water it can be humidifier leaking inside the furnace. If water is leaking inside your furnace it can cause further damages to your heating system and its internal elements and parts. It is best to call your heating and cooling contractor for a furnace service right away if you this is the issue.
Standard efficiency furnace should not be creating any condensation so if your furnace leaking it may be due to the flue piping not properly sized. The warm exhaust may be cooling inside the pipe and creating condensation. This condensation streams back into your furnace and creates furnace leaking issue.
