How a Pressure Switch Works
This part plays a prominent role as your furnace prepares to warm your house.
Here’s what happens after your thermostat’s call for heat:
- Your furnace’s control board commences running the draft inducer blower motor. This drains combustion gases from the heat exchanger and moves in new gas and air so the burners can fire.
- When the pressure switch senses that enough air is being pulled into the burners, it closes and commands the control board to ignite the furnace.
- Your furnace ignites and creates heat.
What Happens When a Pressure Switch Fails
When your pressure switch isn’t functioning the way it should, you’ll likely hear the fan going and the switch clicking a couple times before the furnace turns off completely. When a part isn’t working right, your furnace will turn off to protect you.
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 note short flashes or an alternating slow flash as it passes on a fault code.

Before replacing the switch, your Service Experts Heating & Air Conditioning tech will investigate other parts of your furnace first. Several other issues can also cause the error code, like a blocked vent or cracked hose.
The price to remedy your furnace depends on what’s wrong 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.
