Why is Your Furnace Tripping Your Circuit Breaker?

Heating

It’s never a good thing to have an appliance trip your circuit breaker, but having your furnace cause difficulties through the coldest Ridgedale and the Branson area days is pretty high on Branson HVAC, LLC’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, you may need a furnace repair. Branson HVAC, LLC can help you find out what the exact problem is, but here are some 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 professional.

Overworked Furnaces
There are a variety of explanations as to why your furnace becomes overworked, but they’re typically 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 those are not responsible for your furnace trouble, Branson HVAC, LLC 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 think you have a short circuit in your furnace, call Branson HVAC, LLC right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very hazardous, causing fires or other serious damages.

Wiring Problems
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 trigger your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit. Your Branson HVAC, LLC technician can find and tighten any loose connections and keep your furnace operating safely.
