W​hat is the make and model number of your furnace? Does it come on and just not ignite? If this has no been used before or for some time, it can take a few tries to get the LP pressure up in the line. You may have to cycle it 4 or 5 times to clear that. Get back to me with the above information and I can assist you further here. All follow ups are included in our fee.
