Why is Your Furnace Tripping Your Circuit Breaker? 01/19/2018Having an appliance tripping your circuit breaker is never a good thing, but having your furnace cause complications through the coldest Homer Glen days is pretty high on Pinnacle HVAC LLC’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, you may need a furnace repair.
