It’s never a good thing to have an appliance trip your circuit breaker, but having your furnace cause complications throughout the coldest Columbia days is pretty high on Watts Electric & A/C Inc’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, you may need a furnace repair. Watts Electric & A/C Inc can help you identify what the exact problem is, but here are examples of reasons we commonly 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 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 isn’t the reason for your furnace trouble, Watts Electric & A/C Inc can help you out by performing 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 believe you have a short circuit in your furnace, call Watts Electric & A/C Inc right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very risky, causing fires or other serious damages.

It doesn’t matter how they got that way, loose wires can trigger your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit.
