Moreover, is it OK to turn off pilot light?
Turning off the pilot lights on gas fireplaces and furnaces when not in regular use can save energy and money. If you switch your pilot light off, your air conditioner won't have to work as hard to reverse the heating effect of the pilot light. Your furnace only uses a small amount of gas to power the pilot light.
Also Know, is it dangerous if the pilot light goes out on water heater? As long as the thermocouple remains hot, gas is supplied to the pilot light. If the pilot light goes out, the gas is shut off and there is no danger of gas accumulating because the pilot light is out.
Also, what causes a gas wall heater to go out?
The heater won't operate properly if the pilot flickers, is too weak or goes out, and the cause could also be blockages in the pilot tube. Another cause of a weak pilot is a faulty thermocouple. It's a heat sensor placed next to the pilot flame that signals the gas valve to stay open when the flame is burning.
Can a pilot light cause carbon monoxide?
Carbon monoxide is only produced when fuel of any type; oil, gas, wood or coal is burned. And a pilot light out of adjustment can produce carbon monoxide gas. The amount produced by even a badly maladjusted pilot is small because the flame size is also small.
