It’s never a good thing to have an appliance trip your circuit breaker, but having your furnace cause difficulties during the coldest Lawrence days is pretty high on Scott Temperature’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, it could mean you need a furnace repair. Scott Temperature can help you identify what the exact problem is, but here are a few reasons we commonly see: overworked furnaces, short circuits and wiring problems. No matter what is taking place with your furnace, if your circuit breaker is tripping, you need to call in a qualified technician.
There are a variety of explanations as to why your furnace becomes overworked, but they’re generally preventable. Dirty air filters and blocked or closed vents are often the culprit—and those problems can be easily identified and fixed during a preventive maintenance visit. If that isn’t the reason for your furnace trouble, Scott Temperature 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 Scott Temperature right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very risky, resulting in 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 cause your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit. Your Scott Temperature expert can find and tighten any loose connections and keep your furnace operating safely.
