Why Does My Furnace Keep Blowing Fuses?

Wondering why your furnace keeps blowing a fuse? 

Electrical problems with a furnace are usually an easy fix, however, if left unchecked they can easily become a huge and costly hassle. At Newark-Heath Heating & Cooling, we address electrical issues daily, and we know that there are some tell tale signs that it’s time to call a maintenance company. That is why we put together some possible reasons why your furnace is blowing a fuse, and whether it’s time to call the professionals. 

  1. Your Thermostat Is Malfunctioning 

If you’ve noticed that your thermostat is hanging loosely on your wall, has shut off, or won’t respond, then there is most likely an electrical problem within the system. Any of these problems can cause a blown fuse. Repairs and maintenance should be handled by a professional. 

  1. Air Quality Is Worsening 

Because HVAC systems circulate air, they stir up dust and can get dust buildups in vents, ducts, and filters. Buildups can lead to dust escaping into your furnace’s blower motor, which can result in a blown fuse. If you notice strange noises while your furnace is running, then this may be the problem. 

  1. Water Leaks Around Furnace

Because water conducts electricity and is harmful to wires, water leaks in your furnace system are never a good sign. If you notice water around your furnace, then you should call a maintenance company right away.
