The contractor kind of chuckled when I asked this question plus told me that pilot lights were a thing of the past plus the newer systems had an igniter system instead.
I very thought that when my pal and I purchased our apartment my pal and I would sell it long before my pal and I needed to update the boiler! My associate and I purchased the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C system about 30 years ago plus now my pal and I just had a updatement unit put in, then even though the modern one is far more efficient it is still taking me some time to get used to how it operates, then technology sure has changed over the past 30 years plus I can’t suppose how quiet my modern system is; Not only that it takes up far less room than the outdated cumbersome one that was in the basement plus my pal and I are glad about that as well. I was reading the manual the other day plus I became confused because I was trying to find out how to relight the pilot if it goes out. I had to do this at least a couple of times a year while in the winter season because there were drafts in the basement which would cause the pilot to blow out. No one in the manual did find a way to do this so I ended up calling the Heating, Ventilation, plus A/C contractor to ask him how I go about fixing the problem when it happened. The contractor kind of chuckled when I asked this question plus told me that pilot lights were a thing of the past plus the newer systems had an igniter system instead. Explain that this was an electronic spark that caused the boiler to heat plus it was one of the reasons why they were more fuel efficient. I no longer had a pilot light that burned 24/7 plus the igniter switch also would not be bothered with drafts that might be in the room. I thought this was pretty cool plus it was enjoyable to know I wouldn’t have to worry about that.
