If the installation is that new, get the installing contractor back out to check the furnace. If there is a fault in the unit, or a wiring problem, it should be covered under either unit warranty or the contractor's workmanship guarantee.

Completely agree.
NO WAY the breaker should be tripping in an installation this new.
