Why is Your Furnace Tripping Your Circuit Breaker?

It’s not a good thing when one your appliances is tripping your circuit breaker, but having your furnace cause complications through the coldest Saint Marys days is pretty high on Turner Brothers Heating & Air Conditioning’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, it could mean you need a furnace repair. Turner Brothers Heating & Air Conditioning can help you identify 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 an expert.

Overworked Furnaces

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, Turner Brothers Heating & Air Conditioning can help you out by performing a furnace repair.
