Why is Your Furnace Tripping Your Circuit Breaker?

It’s never a good thing to have an appliance trip your circuit breaker, but having your furnace cause difficulties throughout the coldest Omaha days is pretty high on The Frazier Company’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, there is a chance you need a furnace repair. The Frazier Company 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. No matter what is taking place with your furnace, if your circuit breaker is tripping, you need to call in an expert.

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 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, The Frazier Company 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 promptly when you turn it on. If you believe you have a short circuit in your furnace, call The Frazier Company 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 trigger your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit. Your The Frazier Company expert can find and tighten any loose connections and make sure your furnace is operating safely.

If you noticed that the circuit breaker is tripping, give The Frazier Company a call at 402-628-0206 immediately. It’s important to keep your Omaha home and family safe and warm.
