Having an appliance tripping your circuit breaker is never a good thing, but having your heat pump cause problems that disturb your home comfort is on CNR Air Conditioning Inc’s list of “Bad Things.” If your heat pump is tripping your circuit breaker, you may need a heat pump repair. CNR Air Conditioning Inc can help you find out what the exact problem is, but here are a few things we commonly see: overworked heat pumps, short circuits, wiring problems, fan obstructions and compressor malfunctions. It doesn’t matter what is going on with your heat pump, if your circuit breaker is tripping, you have to call in an expert.
Overworked Heat Pump
Heat pumps become overworked for several reasons, but they’re typically preventable. Dirty air filters or outside units and blocked or closed vents are often to blame—and those problems can be easily identified and fixed during a preventive maintenance visit. If those aren’t the reason for your heat pump trouble, CNR Air Conditioning Inc can help you out by doing a heat pump repair.
If you have a short circuit in your heat pump, it will trip the breaker immediately when you turn it on. If you think you have a short circuit in your heat pump, contact CNR Air Conditioning Inc right away for a heat pump repair. Short circuits can be very unsafe, causing fires or other serious damages.
Faulty installation or loose connections can cause your heat pump to short circuit and trip your circuit breaker. No matter how they got that way, loose wires can force your heat pump to overheat and trip your circuit. Your CNR Air Conditioning Inc expert can find and tighten any loose connections and safely get your heat pump running properly.
If the fan motor of your outdoor unit locks up, it could trip your circuit breaker. Sometimes this fan, which circulates air over refrigerant coils, will become blocked or malfunction and might cause your circuit breaker to trip.
If your compressor is getting old or starts to malfunction, it could trip your circuit breaker. This occurs when the compressor goes to pull in too much current to start itself up.
