The best time to build a roof is when you need one! While current weather is a factor in outdoor jobs, there is never a bad time to build, repair, or replace a roof. Our first step is to identify any existing problems to determine when the repair should be completed. The materials involved will also factor into the project’s timeline (e.g., asphalt shingles require +40°F whereas a flat roof can be installed or repaired at any temperature). Our team is prepared to work as needed to resolve your issue.

Not Sure if that Leak is from Your Roof or HVAC? Here's How to Tell

Not Sure if that Leak is from Your Roof or HVAC? Here's How to Tell

A leaky roof or HVAC system can be tricky to identify, especially if it's your first time experiencing it or you don't know what the source of the leak is. You may assume right away that any leak is because of a roof, but that is not always the case. 

There are many different factors that determine whether it's coming from your roof or HVAC system. While leaks from both your roof and HVAC system can be fixed, it's important to know where the issue lies so you know what needs to be fixed and what can wait until another time. 

It is definitely in your best interest to call an experienced roofing company to evaluate your leak to be 100% sure, but it is helpful to know ahead of time whether the leak is caused by your roof or HVAC so that you don’t waste your time.

Here's how  you can assess what the root cause of your leaky roof is, and whether your HVAC is responsible.

Now, let’s get into it.

Not Sure if that Leak is from Your Roof or HVAC? Here's How to Tell

See If It’s Raining

If you notice a leak in your home and it hasn’t rained that day or a few days prior, then it likely is not because of any roof issues.

Check Out Your Ceiling Tile

If the leak you have noticed is on one of your ceiling tiles, then remove it and try to see where it is dripping from. 

If you notice something big and silver that is dripping, then that right there is your HVAC, and you should contact an HVAC operator. But if you don’t see a “silver thing,” you could call a roofer, or you could move on to step three to be entirely sure what the situation is.

On the other hand, if the leak is going through a ceiling that doesn’t have tiles you can easily remove, then move on to step three.

Investigate Your HVAC

A lot of HVACs are on roofs, and if yours isn’t (if it’s on the ground on the side of your house instead), then it is time to call a trusted roofing company.

However, if yours is on your roof, then try to get up on your roof (safely) and investigate your HVAC machine.

If there are any cracks, holes, or missing nails in the area then that is likely what is causing the leak, as moisture from the machine can penetrate and get inside your home.

Also, it is helpful to see where exactly your HVAC is located on top of your house and see if it is directly above the area in your home that is leaking.

The Bottom Line

Even after you complete these steps and you are still not 100% certain whether your leak is because of your roof or HVAC, then please do not hesitate to give your local experienced roofing company a call so they can check it out and tell you what your next steps need to be to get the leak fixed.
