Having an appliance tripping your circuit breaker is never a good thing, but having your furnace cause complications through the coldest Carson City days is pretty high on Anderson Heating & A/C’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, it could mean you need a furnace repair. Anderson Heating & A/C can help you determine what the exact problem is, but here are a few reasons we typically see: overworked furnaces, short circuits and wiring problems. Regardless what is going on with your furnace, if your circuit breaker is tripping, you need to call in an expert.
There are several reasons why furnaces can be overworked, but they’re usually preventable. Dirty air filters and blocked or closed vents are often responsible—and those problems can be easily identified and fixed during a preventive maintenance visit. If that’s not the cause of your furnace trouble, Anderson Heating & A/C can help you out by doing a furnace repair.
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 Anderson Heating & A/C right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very risky, initiating fires or other serious damages.
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 trigger your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit. Your Anderson Heating & A/C technician can find and tighten any loose connections and ensure your furnace is functioning safely.
