Having an appliance tripping your circuit breaker is never a good thing, but having your furnace cause complications during the coldest Ballwin and St. Charles days is pretty high on Air Alliance Team’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, it could mean you need a furnace repair. Air Alliance Team can help you find out what the exact problem is, but here are a few reasons we usually see: overworked furnaces, short circuits and wiring problems. No matter what is going on with your furnace, if your circuit breaker is tripping, you need to call in a qualified technician.
There are several reasons why furnaces can be 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 fixed during a preventive maintenance visit. If those are not responsible for your furnace trouble, Air Alliance Team can help you out by executing a furnace repair.
If you have a short circuit in your furnace, it will trip the breaker instantly when you turn it on. If you suspect you have a short circuit in your furnace, call Air Alliance Team 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 force your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit. Your Air Alliance Team technician can find and tighten any loose connections and keep your furnace operating safely.
When your circuit breaker is tripping, give Air Alliance Team a call at 636-206-4250 immediately. We want to keep your Ballwin and St. Charles home and family safe and warm.
