Two-stage furnaces have multiple pressure switches to help the system to run at different speeds—and use less energy. These switches also make sure your furnace runs safely and vents excess gases from the heat exchanger.
Your low pressure switch may not be operating right if your furnace inducer motor starts up in high speed and high ignition, then slows down and changes into low-fire mode about 30 seconds later.
Your furnace will communicate something’s wrong with a red flash from its indicator light, which it uses to show error codes. It has this red light to flash code, like Morse code.
You may notice fast flashes or an alternating slow flash as it announces a fault code.
A blocked vent or a draft can also trigger the error, so your A-PlusExpert will check other parts of your furnace first.
The cost to fix your furnace depends on what’s wrong with it and how long it takes to fix it.
You can expect to pay between $40 and $350 if you need a new low-fire pressure switch.
When you need to have your furnace repaired, reach out to the Experts at A-Plus to figure out the fault code and take care of the problem.
