Furnace Pilot Light

One of the most critical things to the operation of your furnace is the pilot light.  The pilot light is a small constantly burning flame that allows the fuel feeding your furnace to take flame and heat up your home.  Occasionally, however, the pilot light can go out, rendering your furnace inoperable.

Several things can cause the pilot light to go out, the most common if which is a dirty or broken thermocouple.  The thermocouple is what tells the furnace fuel supply if the pilot light is lit, and if the thermocouple is failing, it can take a wrong reading and shut off the system entirely.  If your pilot light constantly goes out, there’s a good chance that the thermocouple is on its last leg.
