How a Low-Fire Pressure Switch Works
Two-stage furnaces have multiple pressure switches to allow the system to run at different speeds—and work more efficiently. These switches also make sure your furnace runs safely and vents extraneous gases from the heat exchanger.
What Happens When a Low-Fire Pressure Switch Doesn’t Work
Your low pressure switch may not be working right if your furnace inducer motor starts up in high speed and high ignition, then weakens and changes into low-fire mode about 30 seconds afterward.
Your furnace will demonstrate something’s wrong with a red flash from its indicator light, which it uses to display error codes. It has this red light to flash code, like Morse code.
You may observe fast flashes or an alternating slow flash as it announces a fault code.
Estimated Repair Cost for Furnace Error Code 229
A blocked vent or a draft can also create the error, so your Stevenson Service Experts Expert will check other parts of your furnace first.
The cost to fix your furnace hinges on what’s wrong with it and how long it takes to remedy it.
You can plan to pay between $40 and $350 if you need a new low-fire pressure switch.
