Your central air heating unit, depending on the make and model, depends on a pilot light to work correctly. The pilot light is used as a source of heat to ignite the unit. Lighting your central air heating unit pilot light will take a few moments and is a straightforward procedure.

Check your service manual for the specific location. This button or switch is used to feed the pilot light with a small amount of gas so it lights.
