It’s never a good thing to have an appliance trip your circuit breaker, but having your furnace cause complications during the coldest Newark days is pretty high on Luikart Heating & Cooling’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, there is a chance you need a furnace repair. Luikart Heating & Cooling can help you determine what the exact problem is, but here are some reasons we typically 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 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 that isn’t the reason for your furnace trouble, Luikart Heating & Cooling can help you out by doing 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 suspect you have a short circuit in your furnace, call Luikart Heating & Cooling right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very dangerous, causing 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 Luikart Heating & Cooling professional can find and tighten any loose connections and ensure your furnace is functioning safely.
