Why is Your Furnace Tripping Your Circuit Breaker?

January 19, 2018

Having an appliance tripping your circuit breaker is never a good thing, but having your furnace cause problems through the coldest Neptune City days is pretty high on Aggressive Mechanical’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, there is a chance you need a furnace repair. Aggressive Mechanical can help you determine what the exact problem is, but here are examples of reasons we usually see: overworked furnaces, short circuits and wiring problems. It doesn’t matter what is taking place 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 generally preventable. Dirty air filters and blocked or closed vents are often the culprit—and those problems can be easily identified and resolved during a preventive maintenance visit. If that’s not the cause of your furnace trouble, Aggressive Mechanical can help you out by doing a furnace repair.

Short Circuits
If you have a short circuit in your furnace, it will trip the breaker immediately when you turn it on. If you believe you have a short circuit in your furnace, call Aggressive Mechanical right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very risky, 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. It doesn’t matter how they got that way, loose wires can trigger your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit. Your Aggressive Mechanical professional can find and tighten any loose connections and keep your furnace operating safely.

If you noticed that the circuit breaker is tripping, give Aggressive Mechanical a call at 732-806-5536 immediately. It’s important to keep your Neptune City home and family safe and warm.
