Question about Heating & Cooling
I'm not sure if this is the best option, but it helped me. You can try going to http://www.customcomfortinc.com/. I know you said you're a heating contractor already but I guess it can't hurt to ask.

O.K. a breaker tripping.....it is hard to say cuz your facts are brief.does the breaker trip immediately when you try to reset the breaker? if so...the contractor's employee probably got the 2 "line" legs going to the same side of he disconnect. OR the high volt wire may have short to ground.if the existing wire is xtreamly old, the sheathing can crack and ground out tripping the breaker, quite possibly water may be in the conduit "finding" a crack and shorting out( the reason i bring this up is because a plumber was there.)
breakers often go bad over time....trip and reset the breaker at your panel. it should feel hard to move.there is a spring in there that has to be tight.if it doesn't make a good snap typr action.replace the breaker.they are cheaper than a new machine and they just go bad over time.
you'll have to get another qualified tech to check it out.i would try isolating the high volt circuit and go from there.
good luck.BEWARE OF THE SALESMAN IN TECH CLOTHING.make sure he is old, has dirty nails /uniform.that is a good indicator of a real tech.he may even be slobby too.
