It’s never a good thing to have an appliance trip your circuit breaker, but having your furnace cause problems through the coldest West Columbia days is pretty high on Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc.’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, you may need a furnace repair. Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc. can help you identify what the exact problem is, but here are some reasons we commonly see: overworked furnaces, short circuits and wiring problems. Regardless what is taking place with your furnace, if your circuit breaker is tripping, you need to call in a professional.
There are a variety of explanations as to why your furnace becomes overworked, but they’re usually 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, Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc. can help you out by performing a furnace repair.
If you have a short circuit in your furnace, it will trip the breaker immediately when you turn it on. If you believe you have a short circuit in your furnace, call Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc. right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very risky, initiating 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 Tri City Fuel & Heating Co., Inc. professional can find and tighten any loose connections and keep your furnace operating safely.
