HVAC duct leaks rainwater


Hello
I bought this fixer last October. Recently I have noticed a slow leak in one duct. I cannot tell if the leak stops if I turn the unit on, but I can tell that the leak is inside the duct and not outside the duct.
Any ideas?

HVAC duct leaks rainwater


Check the condensate line first. Could be plugged and overflowing into the duct. If it is rain water you should be able to find where it's getting in the duct.

Question

HVAC duct leaks rainwater


Thanks Marty!
I will get out there with my vac when weather permits. Today, it is raining as hard as yesterday, but no leak! What do you think?

HVAC duct leaks rainwater


sounds like it could be condensation due to cold ductwork meeting high humidity(raining) and doors left open while remodeling allowing a constant flow of humidity into the house
