Moisture at Base
If you notice any type of liquid below your furnace, you should contact a professional immediately. Though it could just be water, which is still a problem because it indicates a clog in the condensation line, it could also be gas which is a more dangerous scenario. If you smell gas in the area, it is likely gas rather than water. TURN OFF your furnace and gas valve and contact Trusted Plumbing & Heating.
