It’s never a good thing to have an appliance trip your circuit breaker, but having your furnace cause difficulties during the coldest Wausau days is pretty high on Gilray 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. Gilray Heating and Cooling can help you determine 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 typically preventable. Dirty air filters and blocked or closed vents are often the culprit—and those problems can be easily identified and remedied during a preventive maintenance visit. If that isn’t the reason for your furnace trouble, Gilray Heating and Cooling can help you out by performing 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 believe you have a short circuit in your furnace, call Gilray Heating and Cooling right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very hazardous, initiating fires or other serious damages.
Faulty installation or loose connections can cause your furnace to short circuit and trip your circuit breaker. Regardless of how they got that way, loose wires can force your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit. Your Gilray Heating and Cooling technician can find and tighten any loose connections and ensure your furnace is functioning safely.
