Having an appliance tripping your circuit breaker is never a good thing, but having your heat pump cause difficulties that impact your home comfort is on Custom Air Systems Inc’s list of “Bad Things.” If your heat pump is tripping your circuit breaker, it could mean you need a heat pump repair. Custom Air Systems Inc can help you determine what the exact problem is, but here are some reasons we commonly see: overworked heat pumps, short circuits, wiring problems, fan obstructions and compressor malfunctions. Regardless 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 a number of reasons, but they’re usually preventable. Dirty air filters or outside units and blocked or closed vents are often to blame—and those problems can be easily identified and remedied during a preventive maintenance visit. If that’s not the cause of your heat pump trouble, Custom Air Systems Inc can help you out by executing a heat pump repair.
If you have a short circuit in your heat pump, it will trip the breaker promptly when you turn it on. If you believe you have a short circuit in your heat pump, call Custom Air Systems Inc right away for a heat pump repair. Short circuits can be very dangerous, causing fires or other serious damages.
Faulty installation or loose connections can cause your heat pump to short circuit and trip your circuit breaker. Regardless of how they got that way, loose wires can trigger your heat pump to overheat and trip your circuit. Your Custom Air Systems Inc professional can find and tighten any loose connections and make sure your heat pump is operating safely.
If the fan motor of your outdoor unit locks up, it might trip your circuit breaker. Sometimes this fan, which circulates air over refrigerant coils, will become congested or malfunction and might cause your circuit breaker to trip.
If your compressor is aging or starts to malfunction, it could trip your circuit breaker. This occurs when the compressor tries to pull in too much current to start itself up.
