It’s never a good thing to have an appliance trip your circuit breaker, but having your furnace cause complications through the coldest Columbus days is pretty high on Wolfe & Sons Heating and Cooling’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, there is a chance you need a furnace repair. Wolfe & Sons 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. It doesn’t matter what is going on with your furnace, if your circuit breaker is tripping, you need to call in an expert.
Furnaces become overworked for a number of reasons, 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 remedied during a preventive maintenance visit. If that isn’t the reason for your furnace trouble, Wolfe & Sons 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 promptly when you turn it on. If you suspect you have a short circuit in your furnace, call Wolfe & Sons Heating and Cooling right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very hazardous, initiating fires or other serious damages.
Faulty installation or loose connections can cause your furnace to short circuit and trip your circuit breaker. Regardless of how they got that way, loose wires can cause your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit. Your Wolfe & Sons Heating and Cooling expert can find and tighten any loose connections and make sure your furnace is operating safely.
