It’s never a good thing to have an appliance trip your circuit breaker, but having your furnace cause complications through the coldest York days is pretty high on Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, you may need a furnace repair. Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning can help you find out what the exact problem is, but here are examples of reasons we commonly 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.
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 fixed during a preventive maintenance visit. If that’s not the cause of your furnace trouble, Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning can help you out by executing a furnace repair.
If you have a short circuit in your furnace, it will trip the breaker immediately when you turn it on. If you suspect you have a short circuit in your furnace, call Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very hazardous, causing fires or other serious damages.
Faulty installation or loose connections can cause your furnace to short circuit and trip your circuit breaker. Regardless of how they got that way, loose wires can cause your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit. Your Strine's Heating & Air Conditioning professional can find and tighten any loose connections and ensure your furnace is functioning safely.
