It can be worrisome to see puddles of water under your furnace. While we can diagnose the problem remotely, there are a few reasons why you might be seeing all that water.
In high-efficiency furnaces, condensation usually leaks out of the furnace and into your floor drain. If the drain gets clogged or the condensation tube clogs or breaks, you will see puddles of water on the floor.
Internal Drain Clog
Is your A/C still working some days? If it shares an internal drain with the furnace and that drain clogs, it can send water to the furnace instead. The leaking water has to go somewhere so it usually ends up puddling on your floor.
Broken Heat Exchanger
When your secondary heat exchanger breaks, you’ll see puddles of water form around your furnace. This can be an expensive repair, so call someone right away to find out what is wrong.
Furnace Humidifier Problems
Do you have a humidifier? If it’s not working well, it can leak water into your furnace, which then leaks out onto your floor. Regular system maintenance can usually find these problems before they get bad enough to cause leaks.
