Does my furnace have a pilot?
- Category: AC / Heating Repair Question and Answer
This all depends on the age of your furnace. The newer furnaces are electronic and do not have pilots. Furnaces manufactured beginning in 1994 were electronic and used hot surface ignition. if you DO have a furnace with a pilot, keep in mind that lighting the pilot is very dangerous and if you are not familiar it should be performed by a certified a/c technician.
