We've had a bunch of rain lately.. Which is good and bad and all the same. I've been taking a much needed DIY vacation for the last week or so.. Attended my "big bro's" wedding in Pittsburgh.. and just burnt since the roommate fiasco.
Anyways, I was gearing back up to tackle DIY stuff. I successfully organized the foyer coat closet, which is beginning to free up space in other areas of the house. Yay! Maybe soon I'll be 100% out of boxes.
While I was cleaning and doing dishes etc it was pouring rain. Admist the silence of the house other than hearing rain outside, I hear some "pinging" of rain inside... uh oh!
So Ms. Super Sonic Ears started walking around to figure out where it was.. I opened the closet to the furnace and bam. I knew the source.
sloshing around.. ugh...
Then on the side of the furnace between the wall which is only about a 3-4" space, I saw water on the floor. I'm being told it's all from a clogged drain on the AC side of things.. and that the flue may of gotten a little water from the rain.. but the main issue is a clogged drain line..
Nothing like being in the attic at 10pm-- and on the roof in the middle of a thunderstorm trying to troubleshoot and figure this stuff out..
Either way all I'm seeing is $$$$$$$$$.. I have a company coming out Friday to take a look see. Maybe I can process this through my home warranty company.. I sure hope so!
If I had the money, I'd rip out the furnace completely-- install an electric one in order to get my house 100% gas free(my furnace and gas logs are the only gas I have)-- relocated the furnace in the attic and clear up this closet all together.. Wishful thinking!
At any rate, a company is coming out Friday to do a look see/diagnosis.. then I can go from there and see if the home warranty company will pick up any additional tabs.
Gotta love being a homeowner some days!
