Question Breaker in bedroom keeps tripping after install of new AC Unit


Quick question. We recently had our AC replaced (Condenser and Coil) and now if we plug anything into any of the plugs in our upstairs bedrooms (which happen to be at the back of the house where the condenser is)(we have 2 on same breaker) then the breaker will trip. When the breaker trips the AC continues to run but both rooms loose all power until I reset.

Curious if it possible that the new system is pulling too much power or if just a coincidence. We did not have any problems before the AC replacement.

Sounds like a coincidence. AC should be on its own separate circuit.

Welcome to the forums.

Is that an AFCI (arc fault) type circuit breaker... with a button on it.... that's tripping ?

What are you plugging in that causes the breaker to trip?what else is on the circuit?I doubt it has anything to do with the AC but you could try shutting the AC off and see if you still have the same issue.
