Leaking Furnace Condensate Drain Trap

New high-efficiency furnaces produce condensation moisture during the combustion process. One common issue I see with these furnaces is that they have a high frequency of developing leaks. On this home inspection in Clarion, PA I discovered a leak at the condensate drain trap assembly. Because these leaks are usually hidden inside the furnace cabinet, they often go unnoticed by the homeowner. During a home inspection, this is just one of the many areas we inspect to discover defects which can cost you $$$ if they go undetected. This was just one of the deficiencies I discovered for this potential home buyer. If you are in need of a thorough home inspection before buying a property in Clarion or another area in central, northwestern Pennsylvania give me a call today.
