Why is Your Furnace Tripping Your Circuit Breaker?

It’s not a good thing when one your appliances is tripping your circuit breaker, but having your furnace cause complications through the coldest Dayton days is pretty high on Jent Mechanical LLC’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, there is a chance you need a furnace repair. Jent Mechanical LLC can help you identify what the exact problem is, but here are some reasons we commonly see: overworked furnaces, short circuits and wiring problems. It doesn’t matter what is happening with your furnace, if your circuit breaker is tripping, you need to call in an expert.

Overworked Furnaces
There are several reasons why furnaces can be overworked, but they’re generally 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 those are not responsible for your furnace trouble, Jent Mechanical LLC can help you out by doing a furnace repair.

Short Circuits

No matter how they got that way, loose wires can force your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit.
