Heil furnace pressure switch problems
No matter how you look at it, the Heil furnace pressure switch is necessary for any home because it is responsible for regulating the amount of gas that goes into the furnace. It also ensures that your house stays warm during the winter months.

A pressure switch is a type of switch that opens or closes an electrical circuit when the level of pressure changes. Pressure switches are often used as safety devices in heating equipment to monitor the water, gas, or air pressure inside the equipment to turn off the power when a certain level is reached. Heil’s heating equipment uses this switch to detect potentially dangerous problems for their furnace and let them control their home comfort.
