$165 later...

...our furnace is fixed :)

It was working fine but water was leaking out of it making kind of a big puddle-which I didn't know furnaces could do, but whatever.

I called the service number on the furnace and they wanted a minimum of $86 just to come out and look at it and then they would give me a quote on how much it would be to fix it.  And the $86 would NOT go towards it.  To that I said "No, thank you." and then started looking around for other furnace repair companies.  I found one rather quickly and talked to the owner and he was pretty cool.  He came out and fixed it the same day.

I wanted to see what the problem with it was because after cleaning up all that water my curiosity had been peaked.  As he dug around in the furnace he pulled out a rotted hose dripping water.  It was falling apart in his hands.  Later he found another one too.  Nice.

2 days later and the floor is totally dry!  Furnace fixed!
