Having an appliance tripping your circuit breaker is never a good thing, but having your furnace cause problems through the coldest Williamsport days is pretty high on Lycoming Heating Company’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, you may need a furnace repair. Lycoming Heating Company can help you determine what the exact problem is, but here are a few 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 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 responsible—and those problems can be easily identified and resolved during a preventive maintenance visit. If that’s not the cause of your furnace trouble, Lycoming Heating Company can help you out by performing a furnace repair.

If you believe you have a short circuit in your furnace, call Lycoming Heating Company right away for a furnace repair. Short circuits can be very hazardous, resulting in fires or other serious damages.

Regardless of how they got that way, loose wires can trigger your furnace to overheat and trip your circuit. Your Lycoming Heating Company professional can find and tighten any loose connections and ensure your furnace is functioning safely.
