Having an appliance tripping your circuit breaker is never a good thing, but having your furnace cause difficulties throughout the coldest Chelan and Wenatchee days is pretty high on Lakeside Heating & Air’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, there is a chance you need a furnace repair. Lakeside Heating & Air 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 happening with your furnace, if your circuit breaker is tripping, you need to call in a qualified technician.
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 responsible—and those problems can be easily identified and fixed during a preventive maintenance visit. If that isn’t the reason for your furnace trouble, Lakeside Heating & Air can help you out by performing a furnace repair.
If you have a short circuit in your furnace, it will trip the breaker instantly when you turn it on. If you suspect you have a short circuit in your furnace, call Lakeside Heating & Air right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very risky, resulting in 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 trigger your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit. Your Lakeside Heating & Air expert can find and tighten any loose connections and keep your furnace operating safely.
