Why is Your Furnace Tripping Your Circuit Breaker?

It’s never a good thing to have an appliance trip your circuit breaker, but having your furnace cause difficulties during the coldest Reinholds days is pretty high on County Line Mechanical LLC’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, it could mean you need a furnace repair. County Line Mechanical 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. No matter 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 generally preventable. Dirty air filters and blocked or closed vents are often responsible—and those problems can be easily identified and remedied during a preventive maintenance visit. If that isn’t the reason for your furnace trouble, County Line Mechanical LLC can help you out by executing a furnace repair.

Short Circuits
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 County Line Mechanical LLC right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very risky, causing 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 force your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit. Your County Line Mechanical LLC professional can find and tighten any loose connections and ensure your furnace is functioning safely.
