Why is Your Furnace Tripping Your Circuit Breaker?

Heating

Having an appliance tripping your circuit breaker is never a good thing, but having your furnace cause complications during the coldest Liberty and the Kansas City Metro Area days is pretty high on Air Unlimited Heating & Cooling’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, it could mean you need a furnace repair. Air Unlimited Heating & Cooling can help you identify what the exact problem is, but here are a few reasons we usually see: overworked furnaces, short circuits and wiring problems. No matter what is going on with your furnace, if your circuit breaker is tripping, you need to call in a professional.

Overworked Furnaces
Furnaces become overworked for a number of reasons, but they’re usually preventable. Dirty air filters and blocked or closed vents are often to blame—and those problems can be easily identified and remedied during a preventive maintenance visit. If that’s not the cause of your furnace trouble, Air Unlimited Heating & Cooling can help you out by performing a furnace repair.

Short Circuits
If you have a short circuit in your furnace, it will trip the breaker promptly when you turn it on. If you think you have a short circuit in your furnace, call Air Unlimited Heating & Cooling right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very dangerous, initiating fires or other serious damages.

Wiring Problems
Faulty installation or loose connections can cause your furnace to short circuit and trip your circuit breaker. No matter how they got that way, loose wires can force your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit. Your Air Unlimited Heating & Cooling expert can find and tighten any loose connections and make sure your furnace is operating safely.
