Electric furnaces are common for home heating in St Petersburg, FL. Although it often costs more to run an electric furnace than a gas furnace, in Florida this is less of a concern because we don’t rely on heating as much during the year. For all-electric homes, electric furnaces are a cost-effective way to provide warmth during the occasional cool days of winter.
Although electric furnaces are generally reliable, they can sometimes create issues. One problem you may run into with your electric furnace during the season is tripped circuit breakers. Your furnace is working great when suddenly it shuts off and doesn’t turn back on. You check the circuit breaker panel and discover the breaker for the furnace has tripped. You reset it, but the problem keeps recurring. What’s going on?
