Simple Hack in Preventing Your AC from Tripping the Circuit Breaker

posted in: blog 0

There may be instances wherein your air conditioning system would cause your circuit breaker to trip. This is mainly due to overheating and overloading of the AC, which could be attributed to several issues.

Among the initial causes of your AC overheating is having a dirty air filter. If it’s already clogged with debris, then it’s time to change it up. First check to see if the filter is still clean or if there’s an excess build up of dirt. This could lead to the AC running longer and working harder to provide the right cooling, which would in turn cause the electricity to short out. To resolve this, simply change your air filter. This should be able to fix the problem of the overheating, therefore preventing your circuit breaker from tripping.

Do take note that this is a minor solution to a minor issue relating to your air conditioning system. Once you notice that it goes beyond the simple DIY matters and more on the electrical side, then it’s time to call a trusted electrical contractor. It’s not worth it to risk your safety in dealing with potentially high voltage, high amperage, and high temperature situations.
