How a Low-Fire Pressure Switch Works
Two-stage furnaces have multiple 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 Fails
Your low pressure switch may not be operating properly if your furnace inducer motor begins in high speed and high ignition, then weakens and shifts into low-fire mode about 30 seconds later.
Your furnace will communicate something’s wrong 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 notice fast flashes or an alternating slow flash as it reports a fault code.

A blocked vent or a draft can also generate the error, so your Calverley Service Experts technician 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 fix it.
You can anticipate to pay between $40 and $350 if you require a new low-fire pressure switch.
