How a Pressure Switch Works

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

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

  • Your furnace’s control board begins running the draft inducer blower motor. This exhausts combustion gases from the heat exchanger and brings in new gas and air so the burners can fire.
  • When the pressure switch senses that sufficient 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 Breaks Down

When your pressure switch isn’t operating promptly, you’ll likely hear the fan start and the switch clicking multiple times before the furnace switches off completely. When a part isn’t performing right, your furnace will turn off to protect you.

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 notice quick flashes or an alternating slow flash as it passes on a fault code.
