Thermostat Issues?

So my girlfriends thermostat I think is causing an issue. If not my second guess would be the ignitor?

The house is currently reading 67 and the thermostat is set to heat at 72, but wont kick on. Eventually it will after hours, but I can turn it off and cut it back on and 9x out of 10 it will cut on immediately and run until the house is heated back up. I'm a complete newbie when it comes to looking and fixing things so hopefully someone has some insight. Thanks in advance!

Welcome to the DIY Forum. Unfortunately no one here is a mind reader so you need to tell us what kind of heating system your girlfriend has and please post the manufacturer along with the model number. Also, is this installed in an owned house or apartment or is it in a rented abode.

How do I know what kind of heating system she has? I assume it's gas. I'll take a picture and upload it. Give me a few

The most important question is whether she OWNS (is buying) the house or if she RENTS. If she is a renter then the landlord is responsible for maintaining the heating system. Doing ANY work on a rental subjects you to far too much liability.
