How a Pressure Switch Works
This part plays a critical duty as your furnace prepares to heat your space.
Here’s what goes on after your thermostat’s call for heat:
- Your furnace’s control board commences 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 enough air is being pulled into the burners, it closes and signals the control board to ignite the furnace.
- Your furnace ignites and provides heat.
What Happens When a Pressure Switch Malfunctions
When your pressure switch isn’t working correctly, you’ll likely hear the fan going and the switch clicking a few times before the furnace shuts down completely. When a part isn’t performing right, your furnace will turn off as a safety precaution.
Your furnace will show you something is amiss with a red flash from its indicator light, which it uses to exhibit error codes. It uses this red light to flash code, like Morse code.
You may see short 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 A1 Chesney Service Experts tech will investigate other parts of your furnace first. Several other issues can also cause the error code, like a blocked vent or cracked hose.
The price to repair 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 plan to pay between $40 to $350.
