pilot light on Heil furnace
The pilot light is an important safety feature in heating systems. In the event of a power outage, the pilot light can be used to start a furnace.
This article will discuss the importance of a pilot light in heating systems and how to fix it if it fails to work.
Pilot lights are optional on Heil furnaces but are required on Thermo Pride models. A pilot light is needed when there is a power outage; during this time, it will help maintain your home’s temperature until the power returns. If your Heil model does not have one or the pilot light has gone out, and you need to fix it, there are a few ways to do so without needing any repair service members.
A pilot light is like a small flame that always burns to keep the gas burner lit. This flame is located on the top of the heater and usually has an orange-ish glow.
The pilot light on Heil furnaces will go out when it needs to be lit. There are three ways to do this:
1) Turning the dials
2) Turning switch knob until you hear a clicking sound
3) Open the door and light manually with a match or a lighter
Pilot light is an important area of concern in Heil furnaces, as it can be instrumental in the operation of the furnace.
A pilot light is a small flame that provides the power for a gas heater or furnace. It is also known as a pilot flame or pilot gas and is lit with a match or lighter. As a safety measure, some furnaces are equipped with sensors that turn off the pilot light when there is no fire intake at the furnace for a set period (usually 30 minutes). This ensures enough oxygen for people who might be around to breathe in case of ignition due to hot surfaces.
The most common reason you would have a problem with your Heil furnace pilot light is if you turned off your thermostat and accidentally pulled out your regulator while shutting it.
