It’s never a good thing to have an appliance trip your circuit breaker, but having your furnace cause difficulties throughout the coldest Des Moines days is pretty high on Heartland Heating & Cooling’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, it could mean you need a furnace repair. Heartland Heating & Cooling can help you identify what the exact problem is, but here are a few reasons we usually 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.
Furnaces become overworked for a number of reasons, but they’re usually preventable. Dirty air filters and blocked or closed vents are often to blame—and those problems can be easily identified and remedied during a preventive maintenance visit. If those are not responsible for your furnace trouble, Heartland Heating & Cooling can help you out by executing a furnace repair.
If you have a short circuit in your furnace, it will trip the breaker promptly when you turn it on. If you suspect you have a short circuit in your furnace, call Heartland Heating & Cooling right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very dangerous, resulting in fires or other serious damages.
Faulty installation or loose connections can cause your furnace to short circuit and trip your circuit breaker. No matter how they got that way, loose wires can cause your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit. Your Heartland Heating & Cooling expert can find and tighten any loose connections and make sure your furnace is operating safely.
