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 problems during the coldest Abilene days is pretty high on Abilene Air-Tech Inc’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, you may need a furnace repair. Abilene Air-Tech Inc can help you identify what the exact problem is, but here are examples of reasons we usually see: overworked furnaces, short circuits and wiring problems. No matter what is taking place with your furnace, if your circuit breaker is tripping, you need to call in a professional.

Overworked Furnaces
Furnaces become overworked for a number of reasons, but they’re generally preventable. Dirty air filters and blocked or closed vents are often the culprit—and those problems can be easily identified and fixed during a preventive maintenance visit. If that’s not the cause of your furnace trouble, Abilene Air-Tech Inc can help you out by doing a furnace repair.

Short Circuits
If you have a short circuit in your furnace, it will trip the breaker instantly when you turn it on. If you believe you have a short circuit in your furnace, call Abilene Air-Tech Inc right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very dangerous, resulting in fires or other serious damages.

Wiring Problems
Faulty installation or loose connections can cause your furnace to short circuit and trip your circuit breaker. No matter how they got that way, loose wires can trigger your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit. Your Abilene Air-Tech Inc professional can find and tighten any loose connections and keep your furnace operating safely.
