How a Low Pressure Switch Works
Pressure switches are a necessary part of the heating process.
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 gets rid of combustion gases from the heat exchanger and brings in new gas and air so the burners can start.
- When the pressure switch senses that sufficient air is being brought into the burners, it closes and tells the control board to ignite the furnace.
- Your furnace ignites and heats your house.
A two-stage furnace has more than one pressure switches, which permit it to run at multiple speeds—and use less energy.
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
- Plugged condensate drain
- Cracked hose
There could also be an issue with the switch itself, the inducer or the circuit board.
Your furnace will let you know 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 notice fast flashes or an alternating slow flash as it reiterates a fault code.
