How a Low-Fire Pressure Switch Works
Two-stage furnaces have multiple pressure switches to let the system to run at different speeds—and be more efficient. These switches also make sure your furnace runs safely and vents extraneous gases from the heat exchanger.
What Happens When a Low-Fire Pressure Switch Doesn’t Work
Your low pressure switch may not be working properly if your furnace inducer motor starts up in high speed and high ignition, then weakens and shifts into low-fire mode about 30 seconds after.
Your furnace will communicate something’s wrong with a red flash from its indicator light, which it uses to display error codes. It has this red light to flash code, like Morse code.
You may notice fast flashes or an alternating slow flash as it announces a fault code.
