Question about Heating & Cooling
My home electric furnace has recently started tripping the 50 amp circuit breakers. It's cold outside and the furnace is running quite a bit. It runs through night fine, but sometime during the day it trips the breakers. Reset the breakers and it runs OK through the night and into the next day, but then trips breakers again. Has happened 3 days in a row now. Any idea what the problem could be? Perhaps the fan motor needs an oiling? Thanks.
It is normal for a breaker that is run right on the edge (50 amp and your furnance to use 45) to get weak after a while . the first thing you should do is change the breaker with the same type and amp rateing . it should take care if it
