Having an appliance tripping your circuit breaker is never a good thing, but having your furnace cause difficulties throughout the coldest Rapid City days is pretty high on Street Heating and Cooling’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, there is a chance you need a furnace repair. Street Heating and Cooling can help you find out what the exact problem is, but here are examples of reasons we typically see: overworked furnaces, short circuits and wiring problems. Regardless what is happening with your furnace, if your circuit breaker is tripping, you need to call in a qualified technician.
There are a variety of explanations as to why your furnace becomes overworked, but they’re typically preventable. Dirty air filters and blocked or closed vents are often responsible—and those problems can be easily identified and remedied during a preventive maintenance visit. If that’s not the cause of your furnace trouble, Street Heating and Cooling can help you out by doing 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 think you have a short circuit in your furnace, call Street Heating and Cooling right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very dangerous, resulting in 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 trigger your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit. Your Street Heating and Cooling expert can find and tighten any loose connections and keep your furnace operating safely.
