It’s never a good thing to have an appliance trip your circuit breaker, but having your furnace cause difficulties during the coldest Cedar Rapids days is pretty high on Ilten's Incorporated’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, you may need a furnace repair. Ilten's Incorporated can help you find out what the exact problem is, but here are a few reasons we usually see: overworked furnaces, short circuits and wiring problems. It doesn’t matter what is taking place with your furnace, if your circuit breaker is tripping, you need to call in an expert.
There are several reasons why furnaces can be overworked, but they’re usually preventable. Dirty air filters and blocked or closed vents are often to blame—and those problems can be easily identified and fixed during a preventive maintenance visit. If that’s not the cause of your furnace trouble, Ilten's Incorporated 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 suspect you have a short circuit in your furnace, call Ilten's Incorporated right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very hazardous, resulting in fires or other serious damages.
