Why Does My Furnace Keep Blowing Fuses?

Apr 2, 2021 | HVAC

If you’re wondering why your furnace keeps blowing fuses, then you’re not alone. Furnace malfunctions due to a blown fuse are common, and solutions are typically simple if addressed immediately. However, if left alone for long enough, electrical problems with your furnace can become a huge and costly hassle. That’s why we at Westerville Air Conditioning & Heating put together some possible reasons why your furnace is blowing a fuse. By knowing more about the problems you may be facing, you can feel more confident when calling a maintenance team for professional assistance. 

1. Malfunctioning Thermostat 

If your thermostat has shut off, is hanging loosely on the wall, or has wires peeking out of the casing then there is most likely a wiring problem within the system. Any of these symptoms can result in a blown fuse. Electrical repairs and maintenance should always be handled by a professional, so you can call us today with the information below. 

2. Bad Air Quality 

Because HVAC systems’ primary function is to circulate air, they can stir up dust resulting in buildups in vents, ducts, and filters. Buildups can lead to dust reaching the furnace’s blower motor, which can ultimately result in a blown fuse, or even a furnace fire. Also, if you notice strange noises while your furnace is running, then this may be the problem. To avoid further damage to the system, or a furnace fire in your home, please call a professional right away. 

3. Water Leakage Around Furnace Unit

Because water conducts electricity and is harmful to wires, water leaks in your furnace system are often dangerous and never a good sign. While they are easy to repair, they can get out of hand if left alone for too long.
