It's called Murphy's law sometimes.......but here is another reason to have your furnace serviced each year to keep it in tip top shape.....
Depending on the type of furnace you have you may encounter issues with water dripping both inside the furnace and onto the surface below causing floor issues.
Sometimes the condenser freezes, the line to the condenser becomes plugged or the fittings somehow loosen.
I went in to change my filter today. I usually change it every 3 months only to find water in the furnace, on the floor and going , HUH?
Yes, I have called the local service provider. They cannot come out until til tomorrow.
I was told it could be from several causes. I guess I will find out when they show up.
I am really glad I have kept up my home warranty. It is events like this that can come back and bite hard that makes a home warranty worth it.
Probably will not pay for the damage to the floor, but my regular insurance should.
Preventive maintenance is a must. Change those filters often and look for signs of unusual changes.
Water would be one of those in a furnace............
