It’s never a good thing to have an appliance trip your circuit breaker, but having your furnace cause problems during the coldest San Jose days is pretty high on American HVAC Inc’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, there is a chance you need a furnace repair. American HVAC Inc can help you determine what the exact problem is, but here are examples of reasons we usually 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.
There are several reasons why furnaces can be 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 resolved during a preventive maintenance visit. If that’s not the cause of your furnace trouble, American HVAC Inc can help you out by executing a furnace repair.
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 American HVAC Inc right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very risky, resulting in fires or other serious damages.

It doesn’t matter how they got that way, loose wires can cause your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit. Your American HVAC Inc technician can find and tighten any loose connections and keep your furnace operating safely.
