Common Issue – Pressure Switch

Prevention/Maintenance (Pressure Switch)

One common problem in the summer months in Texas is with the pressure switch. Most of these problems are related to insects. Ants and other insects are attracted to the sound of the electricity in the pressure switch, when they go inside, they get electrocuted and then their bodies fall between the contacts. This causes the contacts to not be able to come together and complete the circuit.

Some ant bait near the pressure switch may be used to help prevent this from happening. If you do need to clean out the switch, make sure all power going to the switch is turned off.
