Why is Your Furnace Tripping Your Circuit Breaker?

Heating

It’s not a good thing when one your appliances is tripping your circuit breaker, but having your furnace cause problems through the coldest Robstown days is pretty high on McNatt Inc’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, there is a chance you need a furnace repair. McNatt Inc can help you identify what the exact problem is, but here are some reasons we commonly see: overworked furnaces, short circuits and wiring problems. Regardless what is going on with your furnace, if your circuit breaker is tripping, you need to call in a professional.

Overworked Furnaces
Furnaces become overworked for a number of reasons, but they’re generally preventable. Dirty air filters and blocked or closed vents are often to blame—and those problems can be easily identified and resolved during a preventive maintenance visit. If those are not responsible for your furnace trouble, McNatt Inc 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 think you have a short circuit in your furnace, call McNatt Inc right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very risky, resulting in fires or other serious damages.

Wiring Problems
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 McNatt Inc expert can find and tighten any loose connections and ensure your furnace is functioning safely.
