Can Water Damage a Furnace?

When you talk about “water damage” most people typically think of flooring, baseboards, furniture, drywall, and other home components. However, a furnace is probably the most expensive thing that you’ll need to replace if your basement floods. When a furnace gets wet, the sensitive components inside (valves, burners, electronic boards, etc.) can easily be damaged, resulting in a total loss and requiring a replacement.

If you’ve experienced home water damage, call an experienced restoration company to come out and assess the damage. They may need to consult with an HVAC company to determine the extent of the damage, but they can advise you on what needs to be done to get the damage cleaned up as fast as possible. Their goal will be to pump out the water quickly, remove any irreparable items, get the area dried out, and rebuild anything that needs to be replaced to get your home back to its original state.
