How a Low Pressure Switch Works
Pressure switches are an important part of the heating operation.
Here’s how your furnace works after the thermostat initiates the 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 a suitable amount of 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 allow it to run at different speeds—and be more efficient.
What Happens When a Low Pressure Switch Acts Up
The low pressure switch may be open for several reasons.
There could be a:
- Obstructed vent
- Clogged 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 something wrong 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 replays a fault code.
