How a Pressure Switch Works
This part plays a critical duty as your furnace prepares to work in your space.
Here’s what goes on after your thermostat’s call for heat:
- Your furnace’s control board begins running the draft inducer blower motor. This exhausts combustion gases from the heat exchanger and moves in new gas and air so the burners can fire.
- 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 creates heat.
What Happens When a Pressure Switch Malfunctions
When your pressure switch isn’t functioning correctly, you’ll likely hear the fan run and the switch clicking a few times before the furnace shuts down completely. When a part isn’t performing right, your furnace will turn off for your safety.
Your furnace will tell you something is amiss with a red flash from its indicator light, which it uses to display error codes. It uses this red light to flash code, like Morse code.
You may see short flashes or an alternating slow flash as it communicates a fault code.

The cost to repair your furnace depends on the issue with it and how long it takes to fix it.
If your pressure switch needs to be replaced, you can plan to pay between $40 to $350.
