How a Low Pressure Switch Works
Pressure switches are an essential part of the heating system.
Here’s how your furnace works after the thermostat starts to call for heat:
- Your furnace’s control board begins 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 start.
- When the pressure switch senses that enough air is being dragged into the burners, it closes and signals the control board to ignite the furnace.
- Your furnace ignites and heats your home.
A two-stage furnace has more than one pressure switches, which permit it to run at various speeds—and be more efficient.
What Happens When a Low Pressure Switch Acts Up
The low pressure switch may be open for a variety reasons.
There could be a:
- Blocked vent
- Stopped condensate drain
- Cracked hose
There could also be an issue with the switch itself, the inducer or the circuit board.
Your furnace will show you there’s a problem 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 might observe fast flashes or an alternating slow flash as it replays a fault code.
