It’s not a good thing when one your appliances is tripping your circuit breaker, but having your furnace cause difficulties during the coldest Shelby days is pretty high on Hopper Heating and Air’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, it could mean you need a furnace repair. Hopper Heating and Air can help you find out what the exact problem is, but here are a few reasons we typically 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.
There are several reasons why furnaces can be overworked, but they’re generally preventable. Dirty air filters and blocked or closed vents are often to blame—and those problems can be easily identified and resolved during a preventive maintenance visit. If that’s not the cause of your furnace trouble, Hopper Heating and Air can help you out by doing a furnace repair.
If you have a short circuit in your furnace, it will trip the breaker immediately when you turn it on. If you suspect you have a short circuit in your furnace, call Hopper Heating and Air right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very hazardous, resulting in fires or other serious damages.
Faulty installation or loose connections can cause your furnace to short circuit and trip your circuit breaker. Regardless of how they got that way, loose wires can force your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit. Your Hopper Heating and Air professional can find and tighten any loose connections and keep your furnace operating safely.
