Why is Your Furnace Tripping Your Circuit Breaker?

It’s never a good thing to have an appliance trip your circuit breaker, but having your furnace cause complications during the coldest Suffolk/Nassau County days is pretty high on Airmax Long Island Inc’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, you may need a furnace repair. Airmax Long Island Inc can help you identify what the exact problem is, but here are some reasons we usually 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 professional.

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 that isn’t the reason for your furnace trouble, Airmax Long Island Inc can help you out by performing 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 suspect you have a short circuit in your furnace, call Airmax Long Island Inc right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very risky, causing 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 cause your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit. Your Airmax Long Island Inc expert can find and tighten any loose connections and keep your furnace operating safely.
