I hear a drip upstairs before heater turns on


The drip sound seems to only come around 1-2 minutes before the heat turns on, it seems to drip one audible drop every seconds until the heat trns off. I have digital auto thermostats and one unit for upstairs and one for downstairs. I also have noticed a very faint discoloration on the ceiling in the living room, suspiciously in the "area" where I can hear a drip. Any ideas?

Ayuh,...

It sounds like it's Leaking,.. causing Damage,...
Probably should investigate further,+ nail it down to the Exact Location of the Leak,....
Or,..
Call in a Professional to do it for you...
