How a Low Pressure Switch Works
Pressure switches are an essential part of the heating system.
Here’s how your furnace starts after the thermostat starts to call for heat:
- Your furnace’s control board begins the draft inducer blower motor. This exhausts combustion gases from the heat exchanger and sucks 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 triggers the control board to ignite the furnace.
- Your furnace ignites and heats your house.
A two-stage furnace has a few 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:
- Closed off vent
- Plugged condensate drain
- Cracked hose
There could also be trouble with the switch itself, the inducer or the circuit board.
Your furnace will tell you there’s an issue with a red flash from its indicator light, which it uses to exhibit error codes. It has this red light to flash code, like Morse code.
You might see fast flashes or an alternating slow flash as it repeats a fault code.
