It’s never a good thing to have an appliance trip your circuit breaker, but having your furnace cause difficulties throughout the coldest Mount Pleasant days is pretty high on Olde Towne Heating & Air’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, it could mean you need a furnace repair. Olde Towne Heating & Air can help you determine what the exact problem is, but here are examples of reasons we usually 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 professional.
Furnaces become overworked for a number of reasons, but they’re typically 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 those are not responsible for your furnace trouble, Olde Towne Heating & Air can help you out by performing 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 believe you have a short circuit in your furnace, call Olde Towne Heating & Air right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very dangerous, resulting in fires or other serious damages.
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 Olde Towne Heating & Air technician can find and tighten any loose connections and make sure your furnace is operating safely.
