Critical components of your furnace

If you have an older model furnace that uses natural gas, you’ve probably seen the small blue flame known as the pilot light. Although the pilot light is small, it is one of the most critical components of your furnace. Its purpose is to provide the flame needed to light the gas coming out of the main burner. The pilot light is designed to burn all the time. If it were to ever blow out, the gas would continue to come out of the pilot light tube, filling your home with dangerous amounts of natural gas.

If you can’t relight your pilot, contact your furnace repair company today. Temperatures are rising around the county, but it continues to be quite cool here in St. George. To keep your family comfortable until warmer weather sets in, hire a heater repair technician at the first sign of trouble with your furnace.
