Central A/C startup sometimes trips breaker
I have 10 year old central A/C (Lennox), but have lived in house only 2 summers. Last summer A/C ran fine. Twice this summer within the past 10 days I found the A/C circuit breaker in the service panel had tripped. So things were OK for 10 days after first tripping of breaker was reset. Service tech found no problems in pre-season check-up. Any guess as to whether this behavior indicates compressor problem vs. circuit breaker problem?
I'm not going to mess with the service panel
I'm not going to mess with the service panel. My main thrust here was to get a feeling for whether, since this has only occurred twice, I should wait and see if it continues, or should go ahead and have a pro look into it.
