Trane 80 XE water dripping


Urgently need help. Called the home warranty, someone came and looked at the HVAC and said it is all good. Called roofer, fixed roof vents. Not sure what next. We still have heat on. Had AC on for 2 days but changed it back to heat.
Please suggest. Its in the basement, I hear the small drip of water. Its near the filter at the bottom. I dont have much idea on the hvac.

TIA.

So where's the water leaking? do you know? it may not even be a leak, it may not have anything to do with this stuff.

I am sorry I dont have idea on hvac. But if u see the image its dripping from down next to the filter but there is no water inside furnace. Its coming from the left side of the pipe that connect to the filter. probably called inlet.

Re: Trane 80 XE water dripping


I suspect you may have a humidifier leaking water into the return air plenum but I can't see one from that picture. Is there anything mounted on the return air plenum up higher? That PVC lying on the floor looks like it comes from something up higher... perhaps a humidifier drain?

If so, turn the water valve for it off until you can correct the problem. Look on the water pipes serving the water heater to see if there is a small water line tapped off that serves the humidifier. That's where you will find the shut off valve.

Normally a humidifier only gets water when the furnace is in heat mode so running it in cool mode might be OK until you can fix the problem. No guarantee on that.

Perhaps condensate drain is clogged or leaking?
