It’s never a good thing to have an appliance trip your circuit breaker, but having your heat pump cause complications that impact your home comfort is on A2Z Air Inc’s list of “Bad Things.” If your heat pump is tripping your circuit breaker, you may need a heat pump repair. A2Z Air Inc can help you identify 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. No matter what is going on with your heat pump, if your circuit breaker is tripping, you need to call in an expert.
Overheated 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 resolved during a preventive maintenance visit. If that isn’t the issue with your heat pump trouble, A2Z Air 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 promptly when you turn it on. If you suspect you have a short circuit in your heat pump, contact A2Z Air Inc right away for a heat pump repair. Short circuits can be very hazardous, 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 A2Z Air Inc expert can find and tighten any loose connections and keep your heat pump operating safely.
If the fan motor of your outdoor unit locks up, it may 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 older or starts to malfunction, it could trip your circuit breaker. This happens when the compressor attempts to pull in too much current to start itself up.
