How a Pressure Switch Works
This part plays a critical role as your furnace prepares to warm your space.
Here’s what goes on 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 moves in new gas and air so the burners can fire.
- When the pressure switch senses that plenty of air is being pulled into the burners, it closes and commands 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 promptly, you’ll likely hear the fan run and the switch clicking a couple times before the furnace switches off completely. When a part isn’t functioning right, your furnace will turn off as a safety precaution.
Your furnace will show you something is wrong with a red flash from its indicator light, which it uses to display 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 communicates a fault code.
