Having an appliance tripping your circuit breaker is never a good thing, but having your furnace cause problems throughout the coldest Rock Hill days is pretty high on US Air Heating and Cooling’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, it could mean you need a furnace repair. US Air Heating and Cooling can help you find out what the exact problem is, but here are examples of reasons we commonly 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 qualified technician.
There are a variety of explanations as to why your furnace becomes overworked, but they’re generally preventable. Dirty air filters and blocked or closed vents are often responsible—and those problems can be easily identified and fixed during a preventive maintenance visit. If that isn’t the reason for your furnace trouble, US Air Heating and Cooling can help you out by doing a furnace repair.
If you have a short circuit in your furnace, it will trip the breaker instantly when you turn it on. If you suspect you have a short circuit in your furnace, call US Air Heating and Cooling right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very risky, resulting in fires or other serious damages.
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 force your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit. Your US Air Heating and Cooling professional can find and tighten any loose connections and make sure your furnace is operating safely.
