Customer Question
Hi, I'm trying to...

Hi, I'm trying to troubleshoot my air handler. It keeps blowing a 3AMP fuse anytime I turn the unit to heat.

Contractor's Assistant: Did you double-check the thermostat's settings? And what about the filters?

The filter is fine, when you say double check the settings, could you be more specific? I'm handy with tools, but no HVAC experience.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Hopefully!

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

I don't believe so.
