oil burner leaking water

lws Member Posts: 1
Since I've started running my air conditioner this summer, I seem to have water on my basement floor coming from my oil burner. Why is it even running? Isn't my air system electric? This is a new house for me (but it's an old house) and I'm a little confused!

    Could you please explain. Your ac would discharge water / condensate, but how is this related to your oil burner?

    it's either

    A warm air furnace with A/C that has a pan, drain, or condensate pump issue, or the boiler has been turned off this time of year and gaskets have shrunk. One of those "shot in the dark" kind of threads

    Bill has it!

    Either that or a total coincidence!:)
