Why is Your Furnace Tripping Your Circuit Breaker?

Heating

Having an appliance tripping your circuit breaker is never a good thing, but having your furnace cause difficulties through the coldest Vancouver days is pretty high on Air Pro Heating & Cooling LLC’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, there is a chance you need a furnace repair. Air Pro Heating & Cooling LLC can help you identify what the exact problem is, but here are some reasons we usually see: overworked furnaces, short circuits and wiring problems. It doesn’t matter what is happening with your furnace, if your circuit breaker is tripping, you need to call in a professional.

Overworked Furnaces
There are several reasons why furnaces can be overworked, 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 isn’t the reason for your furnace trouble, Air Pro Heating & Cooling LLC can help you out by executing a furnace repair.

Short Circuits

If you think you have a short circuit in your furnace, call Air Pro Heating & Cooling LLC right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very dangerous, initiating 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 force your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit. Your Air Pro Heating & Cooling LLC expert can find and tighten any loose connections and make sure your furnace is operating safely.
