My garage was awash yesterday with water that can only be coming from my electric furnace. I am baffled as to where it came from and why. This is my third winter in this house, we did not have freezing temperatures yesterday, and I could not find any plugged drains or other problems. But, I know very little about furnaces except to change the filters. The furnace is still working fine, but there was a LOT of water in my garage and I need to educate myself on what happened and what I need to do. Any help is appreciated.

Yes, it's a heat pump. Would ice collecting on the coils cause that much water? And, the ice would form why? Due to a problem with the unit? Or is this normal and I should be doing some maintenance? Thanks.

OK, so sounds like a couple of problems here - 1) ice on indoor coil and 2) drainage problem. So, on #2 I should check the drain line again for a clog or some other interference. On #1, if the ice collected due to being stuck in defrost mode, how do I check this? Is there something I can do myself or should I call a pro? Thanks again for your help.
