I have no skill set and I was under the impression it would be simple to just relight the pilot
Expert:  Phil replied 8 months ago.

Hello, with modern electronically controlled furnaces its not as simple as relighting the pilot, that approach was good for furnaces built earlier than 1975 however.

okay so what are my options?
Expert:  Phil replied 8 months ago.

Tell me which direction you are from the center of the nearest city and I will look for a well rated local furnace service outfit that can arrive repair the furnace.
