How a Pressure Switch Works

This part plays a prominent role as your furnace prepares to work in your home.

Here’s what happens after your thermostat’s call for heat:

  • Your furnace’s control board begins running the draft inducer blower motor. This exhausts combustion gases from the heat exchanger and pulls 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 commands 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 functioning 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 functioning right, your furnace will turn off as a safety precaution.

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 see quick flashes or an alternating slow flash as it communicates a fault code.

Estimated Repair Cost for Furnace Error Code 228

Before replacing the switch, your Strogen's 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 the issue 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.
