Why is Your Furnace Tripping Your Circuit Breaker?

Having an appliance tripping your circuit breaker is never a good thing, but having your furnace cause difficulties throughout the coldest Booneville days is pretty high on Booneville Heating & Cooling LLC’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, you may need a furnace repair. Booneville Heating & Cooling LLC can help you identify what the exact problem is, but here are a few reasons we typically see: overworked furnaces, short circuits and wiring problems. Regardless what is happening with your furnace, if your circuit breaker is tripping, you need to call in a qualified technician.

Overworked Furnaces
There are several reasons why furnaces can be overworked, but they’re usually 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, Booneville Heating & Cooling LLC can help you out by executing a furnace repair.

It doesn’t matter how they got that way, loose wires can force your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit.
