Water In The Basement

Just went downstairs to do my 30 minutes of walking and good thing that I did. I noticed some water on the floor near the furnace, I wasn't pleased to see that at all. We had a new furnace put in on December 1st, 2015, so what's the problem? I called the furnace company and they said they will be here within 2 hours, that should be before 11:30 this morning. I hope that it is a fast fix as I have other things to do than hang around here and wait.

Its almost 11:30 now, I hope that the furnace guys have been and that you have a fix to the water problem. Would it have anything to do with the a/c unit, you posted that you had it on high the other day......

Yes, you got it right. It was the A/C that was leaking! Fixed at the cost of $203.40. How is your house selling going?

@marlina I thought so, only because of experience in the very first home we lived in we had that issue. We have our house selling on hold currently.

@Juliaacv I see, I guess you are not sure anymore if you want to move or not.

I hope it's still under warranty, and they can figure out what's going on.

@marlina Glad it's fixed but what a bummer on the cost, I suppose it could have been worse.

Water in the basement is never a good thing! But A light in the attic is lovely

@marlina Has it been raining maybe it is a leak from somewhere in the wall. But that is good you noticed it, shows you are paying attention. I hope it is nothing serious. Is it cold where you are, and you need the furnace? I know we got our furnace because we were forbidden from turning it on it was a cold week in September we had to buy space heaters! because we had to wait a week!

Actually both the furnace and the A/C are together in the same spot. I was wrong it wasn't the furnace but the A/C that was malfunctioning. Fixed now.
