It’s never a good thing to have an appliance trip your circuit breaker, but having your furnace cause problems through the coldest West Valley City days is pretty high on Select Comfort Systems Heating & Air Conditioning’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, you may need a furnace repair. Select Comfort Systems Heating & Air Conditioning can help you determine what the exact problem is, but here are a few reasons we commonly see: overworked furnaces, short circuits and wiring problems. No matter what is happening with your furnace, if your circuit breaker is tripping, you need to call in a qualified technician.
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 isn’t the reason for your furnace trouble, Select Comfort Systems Heating & Air Conditioning 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.

Regardless of how they got that way, loose wires can trigger your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit.
