shut off furnace pilot for summer?? Or not??
I've had trouble in previous years relighting my gas furnace pilot at the beginning of the season. One year, the device had to be replaced in fact. If I shut off the pilot for the summer, should I do anything that would help successful operation in the fall? Cover it with a baggie or such? Or is the cost of running the pilot so low that I might as well let it burn all summer?
