Why is Your Furnace Tripping Your Circuit Breaker?

Having an appliance tripping your circuit breaker is never a good thing, but having your furnace cause difficulties through the coldest Springfield days is pretty high on Bormida Mechanical Services Inc’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, it could mean you need a furnace repair. Bormida Mechanical Services Inc can help you determine what the exact problem is, but here are a few reasons we commonly see: overworked furnaces, short circuits and wiring problems. It doesn’t matter what is going on with your furnace, if your circuit breaker is tripping, you need to call in a qualified technician.

Overworked Furnaces
There are several reasons why furnaces can be 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 remedied during a preventive maintenance visit. If those are not responsible for your furnace trouble, Bormida Mechanical Services Inc can help you out by executing 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 Bormida Mechanical Services Inc right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very hazardous, 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. Regardless of how they got that way, loose wires can force your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit. Your Bormida Mechanical Services Inc technician can find and tighten any loose connections and ensure your furnace is functioning safely.
