It’s not a good thing when one your appliances is tripping your circuit breaker, but having your furnace cause problems through the coldest Bishop days is pretty high on Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, it could mean you need a furnace repair. Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning can help you identify what the exact problem is, but here are some reasons we usually see: overworked furnaces, short circuits and wiring problems. No matter what is going on with your furnace, if your circuit breaker is tripping, you need to call in a professional.
There are a variety of explanations as to why your furnace becomes overworked, but they’re typically preventable. Dirty air filters and blocked or closed vents are often to blame—and those problems can be easily identified and remedied during a preventive maintenance visit. If that isn’t the reason for your furnace trouble, Bishop Heating & Air Conditioning can help you out by doing a furnace repair.
