How a Low-Fire Pressure Switch Works
Two-stage furnaces have multiple pressure switches to help the system to run at different speeds—and work more efficiently. These switches also ensure your furnace runs safely and vents excess gases from the heat exchanger.
What Happens When a Low-Fire Pressure Switch Malfunctions
Your low pressure switch may not be functioning properly if your furnace inducer motor starts up in high speed and high ignition, then loses speed and shifts into low-fire mode about 30 seconds later.
Your system will indicates something’s amiss with a red flash from its indicator light, which it uses to exhibit 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 tells you a fault code.
Estimated Repair Cost for Furnace Error Code 229
A blocked vent or a draft can also trigger the error, so your Matz-Rightway Expert will investigate other parts of your furnace first.
The bill to fix your furnace relies on what’s wrong with it and how long it takes to repair it.
You can plan to pay between $40 and $350 if you need a new low-fire pressure switch.
