Why is Your Furnace Tripping Your Circuit Breaker?

Heating

It’s not a good thing when one your appliances is tripping your circuit breaker, but having your furnace cause problems during the coldest Grove City days is pretty high on Air Quality Solutions’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, it could mean you need a furnace repair. Air Quality Solutions can help you determine what the exact problem is, but here are some reasons we usually see: overworked furnaces, short circuits and wiring problems. It doesn’t matter what is happening with your furnace, if your circuit breaker is tripping, you need to call in an expert.

Overworked Furnaces
Furnaces become overworked for a number of reasons, but they’re generally preventable. Dirty air filters and blocked or closed vents are often the culprit—and those problems can be easily identified and resolved during a preventive maintenance visit. If that isn’t the reason for your furnace trouble, Air Quality Solutions can help you out by doing 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 believe you have a short circuit in your furnace, call Air Quality Solutions right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very risky, 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. It doesn’t matter how they got that way, loose wires can cause your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit. Your Air Quality Solutions professional can find and tighten any loose connections and ensure your furnace is functioning safely.
