Having an appliance tripping your circuit breaker is never a good thing, but having your furnace cause difficulties through the coldest Zelienople days is pretty high on Knoechel Heating Company’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, it could mean you need a furnace repair. Knoechel Heating Company can help you identify what the exact problem is, but here are examples of reasons we typically 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 qualified technician.
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 fixed during a preventive maintenance visit. If those are not responsible for your furnace trouble, Knoechel Heating Company 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 Knoechel Heating Company right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very risky, resulting in 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 force your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit. Your Knoechel Heating Company technician can find and tighten any loose connections and ensure your furnace is functioning safely.
If you noticed that the circuit breaker is tripping, give Knoechel Heating Company a call at 724-425-5852 immediately. We want to keep your Zelienople home and family safe and warm.
