It’s never a good thing to have an appliance trip your circuit breaker, but having your furnace cause complications throughout the coldest Gresham days is pretty high on Honke Heating & AC’s list of “Bad Things.” If your furnace is tripping your circuit breaker, you may need a furnace repair.

If that’s not the cause of your furnace trouble, Honke Heating & AC can help you out by doing a furnace repair.
