    If the pressure switch closes normally, the rest of the furnace sequence of operation will continue. What it does: When the switch senses that pressure, it switches to the Closed position, completing an electrical circuit, and allowing the furnace to move to the next stages — firing up the burner and blower to create and circulate heat. This reduced temperature allowed for the use of a less specialty material for pressure switch tubing, such as EPDM. Blocked Air Intake or Exhaust Your furnace needs fresh air for combustion. Before trying a DIY diagnostic or repair, always power off the system by using the switch on the unit.
