Question

I'm desperate. Never worked on the furnace before, but pretty good at do it yourself (with lots of help from Home Depot). Furnace is blowing cold air. I tried the procedure to relight, and nothing happened. What can I try? I've lived here 3 years, and never done any maintenance. I will have it serviced, but in the meantime, I have a 3 week old baby at home, and it is getting cold. No one can come out until late tomorrow. If anyone helps, I will change the baby's name to yours, unless your name is Sue.

Thanks for your prompt reply. I did manage to get a tech here, and he put on a new ignitor. Fired right up. Thanks for your help!
