How a Low Pressure Switch Works

Pressure switches are an essential part of the heating operation.

Here’s how your furnace starts after the thermostat begins to call for heat:

  • Your furnace’s control board begins the draft inducer blower motor. This exhausts combustion gases from the heat exchanger and brings in new gas and air so the burners can ignite.
  • 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 heats your house.

A two-stage furnace has a few pressure switches, which help it to run at various speeds—and be more efficient.

What Happens When a Low Pressure Switch Malfunctions

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 a problem 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 feature 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 reiterates a fault code.
