It is true that many modern, high-efficiency furnaces can produce condensation as a result of how they work. However, whether your furnace is lower or higher-efficiency, if your furnace is leaking water at the base then something isn’t working as it should. Diagnosing and addressing the exact issue is important. The last thing you want is for your furnace to seriously malfunction or even stop working altogether during the middle of the winter months. Thankfully, Jack Lehr has you covered!

Only a few things can cause the problem, making it easy for an expert to nail down and repair. Problems can include:
