When you need the gas furnace in your house to run during winter, the least you expect from it is to turn on. This means the electronic igniter (or pilot light in an older furnace) causes the gas burners to light and create the combustion of gas that will eventually warm up the air moving into your house.
But you may discover one day that the furnace isn’t coming on. The burner won’t light.
