Here’s one: relighting the pilot light on your furnace.
First you’ll have to remove the access panel on your furnace. Once you have the panel removed and set aside, locate the gas control knob. Have your long fireplace matches ready. Turn the knob to “pilot.” Press and hold the “pilot” knob down while you use one of the matches to light the pilot. Keep the knob depressed for thirty seconds before releasing. If the pilot stays lit, turn the knob to the “on” position, replace the access panel, and you’re done! Here’s a helpful video going into much greater depth covering all the furnace components involved, as well as a bonus video on lighting a pilot on a water heater.
Here’s to a safe and happy New Year! Happy Holidays to our Northwest Indiana family, friends, and neighbors.
