It’s not a good thing when one your appliances is tripping your circuit breaker, but having your furnace cause difficulties throughout the coldest Hodgenville days is pretty high on Phelps Heating & Cooling’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, it could mean you need a furnace repair. Phelps Heating & Cooling can help you find out what the exact problem is, but here are a few reasons we usually see: overworked furnaces, short circuits and wiring problems. No matter 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 usually preventable. Dirty air filters and blocked or closed vents are often responsible—and those problems can be easily identified and remedied during a preventive maintenance visit. If those are not responsible for your furnace trouble, Phelps Heating & Cooling can help you out by performing 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 think you have a short circuit in your furnace, call Phelps Heating & Cooling right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very risky, causing 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 force your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit. Your Phelps Heating & Cooling professional can find and tighten any loose connections and ensure your furnace is functioning safely.
