How a Low-Fire Pressure Switch Works
Two-stage furnaces have multiple pressure switches to allow the system to run at different speeds—and be more efficient. These switches also ensure your furnace runs safely and vents extraneous gases from the heat exchanger.
What Happens When a Low-Fire Pressure Switch Fails
Your low pressure switch may not be functioning correctly if your furnace inducer motor starts up in high speed and high ignition, then loses speed and enters into low-fire mode about 30 seconds later.
Your HVAC will communicate something’s amiss 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 tells you a fault code.

A blocked vent or a draft can also trigger the error, so your Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning Expert will investigate other parts of your furnace first.
The bill to fix your furnace depends on what’s wrong with it and how long it takes to repair it.
You can anticipate to pay between $40 and $350 if you have to have a new low-fire pressure switch.
