Why is Your Furnace Tripping Your Circuit Breaker?

It’s not a good thing when one your appliances is tripping your circuit breaker, but having your furnace cause difficulties 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, there is a chance you need a furnace repair. Anderson Heating & A/C can help you identify what the exact problem is, but here are some reasons we usually see: overworked furnaces, short circuits and wiring problems. No matter what is going on 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 typically preventable. Dirty air filters and blocked or closed vents are often responsible—and those problems can be easily identified and resolved during a preventive maintenance visit. If that’s not the cause of your furnace trouble, Anderson Heating & A/C can help you out by performing a furnace repair.
