How a Pressure Switch Works
This part plays an important duty as your furnace prepares to work in your home.
Here’s what goes on after your thermostat’s call for heat:
- Your furnace’s control board starts running the draft inducer blower motor. This drains combustion gases from the heat exchanger and brings in new gas and air so the burners can fire.
- When the pressure switch senses that sufficient air is being pulled into the burners, it closes and commands the control board to ignite the furnace.
- Your furnace ignites and provides heat.
What Happens When a Pressure Switch Fails
When your pressure switch isn’t working the way it should, you’ll likely hear the fan going and the switch clicking a couple times before the furnace switches off completely. When a part isn’t performing right, your furnace will turn off as a safety precaution.
Your furnace will tell you something is incorrect 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 note short flashes or an alternating slow flash as it communicates a fault code.
Estimated Repair Cost for Furnace Error Code 228
Before replacing the switch, your A-PLUS Service Experts Expert 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 bill to repair your furnace depends on what’s wrong with it and how long it takes to fix it.
If your pressure switch needs to be replaced, you can expect to pay between $40 to $350.
