Question about Heating & Cooling
My pilot will stay lite all the time until the heater comes on, then the heater burner burns for a while then it just kinda clicks and then the burner and the pilot go off. I can then light the pilot back and it continues to burn.
-perhaps you have resolved your issue, which is why you have not responded to my questions...this is great if it is true, but just incase I will attempt to answer it anyway
-the pilot does not require much fuel to maintain (more than you think..when you look at the summer bills)
-when the thermostat calls for the burner to fire, it opens the valve and the fuel SHOULD flow
-when insufficient fuel is provided, the increased demand actually causes the burner to extinish itself, which results in the valve automatically closing (safety feature)
-if the fuel is liquid (i.e. heating oil) there will be a filter which is likely the cause of the lack of fuel delivery....this is a $15 filter...available at many hardware stores..or even you fuel supplier
-the process is simple.
if you are uncomfortable at all...then call a fuel burner technician...please!
Remember....anything other than a FIX-YA will lower my rating...so please if you have any other questions....ask....if not...then FIX-YA
