How a Low-Fire Pressure Switch Works

Two-stage furnaces have numerous pressure switches to allow the system to run at different speeds—and use less energy. These switches also guarantee your furnace runs safely and vents extra gases from the heat exchanger.

What Happens When a Low-Fire Pressure Switch Doesn’t Work

Your low pressure switch may not be operating properly if your furnace inducer motor switches on in high speed and high ignition, then weakens and enters into low-fire mode about 30 seconds after.

Your system will communicate something’s not right 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 notice fast flashes or an alternating slow flash as it reports a fault code.

Estimated Repair Cost for Furnace Error Code 229

A blocked vent or a draft can also generate the error, so your TML Service Experts professional will look at other parts of your furnace first.

The price to fix your furnace depends on what’s wrong with it and how long it takes to remedy it.

You can expect to pay between $40 and $350 if you have to have a new low-fire pressure switch.
