How a Pressure Switch Works
This part plays a prominent part as your furnace prepares to heat your space.
Here’s what occurs 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 tells the control board to ignite the furnace.
- Your furnace ignites and supplies heat.
What Happens When a Pressure Switch Malfunctions
When your pressure switch isn’t operating promptly, you’ll likely hear the fan going and the switch clicking multiple times before the furnace shuts down completely. When a part isn’t working right, your furnace will turn off to protect you.
Your furnace will let you know something is amiss with a red flash from its indicator light, which it uses to display error codes. It uses this red light to flash code, like Morse code.
You may note fast flashes or an alternating slow flash as it passes on a fault code.
Estimated Repair Cost for Furnace Error Code 228
Before replacing the switch, your R & M Climate Control Service Experts tech will check other parts of your furnace first. Some other issues can also create the error code, like a clogged vent or cracked hose.
The bill to remedy your furnace depends on what’s defective 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.
