red blinking light after ducts were cleaned yesterday

Hello can someone please help me. I noticed that my furnace model "trane xe 80" has a steady red flashing light. I just had my ducts cleaned yesterday. Does anyone know what the problem may be? please help.

The red flashing light is a code to what may be wrong with you furnace. Count the flashes. There may be a pause in the flashes and more flashes. For example 8 flashes a pause then 2 more. Then the cycle will repeat. If you remove the cover you are looking through at the flashes, on the inside of the cover there should be a label with information on that the flashes mean.

not sure about that particular furnace code, but you may look and find that the steady flash is a normal condition and you just never noticed it until now.
