How a Pressure Switch Works

This part plays a critical role as your furnace prepares to work in your house.

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

  • Your furnace’s control board commences running the draft inducer blower motor. This pushes out combustion gases from the heat exchanger and brings 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 signals the control board to ignite the furnace.
  • Your furnace ignites and creates heat.

What Happens When a Pressure Switch Fails

When your pressure switch isn’t operating the way it should, you’ll likely hear the fan going and the switch clicking multiple times before the furnace turns off completely. When a part isn’t performing right, your furnace will turn off for your safety.

Your furnace will tell you something is incorrect with a red flash from its indicator light, which it uses to exhibit error codes. It uses this red light to flash code, like Morse code.

You may note quick flashes or an alternating slow flash as it passes on a fault code.
