How a Pressure Switch Works
This part plays a critical part as your furnace prepares to heat your space.
Here’s what happens after your thermostat’s call for heat:
- Your furnace’s control board starts running the draft inducer blower motor. This exhausts 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 Breaks Down
When your pressure switch isn’t functioning correctly, 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 to protect you.
Your furnace will let you know something is amiss 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 notice short 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 Rob's Albertan Service Experts tech will look at other parts of your furnace first. A handful of other issues can also cause the error code, like a blocked vent or cracked hose.
The cost to repair your furnace depends on the issue 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.
