How a Pressure Switch Works
This part plays a prominent part as your furnace prepares to work in your house.
Here’s what happens after your thermostat’s call for heat:
- Your furnace’s control board starts running the draft inducer blower motor. This pushes out combustion gases from the heat exchanger and pulls in new gas and air so the burners can fire.
- When the pressure switch senses that plenty of air is being pulled into the burners, it closes and tells the control board to ignite the furnace.
- Your furnace ignites and creates heat.
What Happens When a Pressure Switch Malfunctions
When your pressure switch isn’t functioning promptly, you’ll likely hear the fan run and the switch clicking multiple times before the furnace turns off completely. When a part isn’t functioning right, your furnace will turn off for your safety.
Your furnace will tell you something is wrong with a red flash from its indicator light, which it uses to present error codes. It uses this red light to flash code, like Morse code.
You may notice fast flashes or an alternating slow flash as it transmits a fault code.
Estimated Repair Cost for Furnace Error Code 228
Before replacing the switch, your Service Experts Commercial HVAC technician will check other parts of your furnace first. A handful of other issues can also cause the error code, like a clogged vent or cracked hose.
The price to remedy your furnace depends on the issue with it and how long it takes to fix it.
If your pressure switch needs to be replaced, you can plan to pay between $40 to $350.
