Heating

It’s not a good thing when one your appliances is tripping your circuit breaker, but having your furnace cause complications through the coldest Holdrege days is pretty high on Durable Service ’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, it could mean you need a furnace repair. Durable Service can help you determine 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 taking place with your furnace, if your circuit breaker is tripping, you need to call in a qualified technician.

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 resolved during a preventive maintenance visit. If those are not responsible for your furnace trouble, Durable Service can help you out by doing a furnace repair.

Short Circuits
If you have a short circuit in your furnace, it will trip the breaker instantly when you turn it on. If you suspect you have a short circuit in your furnace, call Durable Service right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very hazardous, 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. Regardless of how they got that way, loose wires can force your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit. Your Durable Service expert can find and tighten any loose connections and keep your furnace operating safely.

When your circuit breaker is tripping, give Durable Service a call at 308-832-4327 immediately. It’s important to keep your Holdrege home and family safe and warm.
