Why is Your Furnace Tripping Your Circuit Breaker?

Heating

It’s never a good thing to have an appliance trip your circuit breaker, but having your furnace cause complications through the coldest Shreveport days is pretty high on Moon's Air’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, you may need a furnace repair. Moon's Air can help you determine what the exact problem is, but here are a few reasons we usually see: overworked furnaces, short circuits and wiring problems. It doesn’t matter what is taking place with your furnace, if your circuit breaker is tripping, you need to call in a qualified technician.

Overworked Furnaces
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’s not the cause of your furnace trouble, Moon's Air 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 Moon's Air right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very dangerous, causing fires or other serious damages.

Wiring Problems
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 force your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit. Your Moon's Air expert can find and tighten any loose connections and ensure your furnace is functioning safely.
