It’s not a good thing when one your appliances is tripping your circuit breaker, but having your furnace cause complications during the coldest Sandpoint days is pretty high on Age Heating & Cooling’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, there is a chance you need a furnace repair. Age Heating & Cooling can help you determine what the exact problem is, but here are a few reasons we usually see: overworked furnaces, short circuits and wiring problems. Regardless what is taking place with your furnace, if your circuit breaker is tripping, you need to call in an expert.
There are a variety of explanations as to why your furnace becomes overworked, but they’re typically preventable. Dirty air filters and blocked or closed vents are often the culprit—and those problems can be easily identified and remedied during a preventive maintenance visit. If those are not responsible for your furnace trouble, Age Heating & Cooling 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 think you have a short circuit in your furnace, call Age Heating & 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 cause your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit. Your Age Heating & Cooling technician can find and tighten any loose connections and make sure your furnace is operating safely.
