It’s never a good thing to have an appliance trip your circuit breaker, but having your furnace cause problems through the coldest Wisconsin Rapids days is pretty high on Rapids Sheet Metal Works Inc’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, it could mean you need a furnace repair.
