Why Pilot Lights Are Essential to Your Furnace

A gas furnace needs an ignition source to prompt the burners to burn the fuel and create heat. There are several different types of ignition sources, but the overall result is the same: problems with any of these ignition types will prevent your furnace from turning on. Your furnace may be operating with an ignition system like:

  • Hot surface ignition
  • Direct spark ignition
  • Intermittent pilot ignition
  • Standing pilot ignition

Why Won’t My Furnace Light?

When you have a problem with the furnace not lighting, a closer look at the ignition system is required to find the trouble. You must first assess if you have a consistent gas source. If the gas was turned off unexpectedly, or if the gas line is leaking, you might have your answer. (Note: if you smell gas in any area of the house, exit the house and call us immediately.) Your furnace might also refuse to turn on if the pilot light was snuffed out by a draft. If your furnace operates with an electronic ignition system, make sure there is electricity running to your furnace.

If you have tried the simple fixes that apply to your type of furnace and nothing helps, call in HVAC and furnace specialists like Vanport Mechanical to find the problem and fix it right. The experienced repair technician will go through the entire system to ensure it works properly.
