It's cold. It's Sunday. I just found out my HSI is cracked. So it will be a few days until I can get a new one. Can I light my furnace with a match? The controller did not recognize the faulty HSI. It continued on as normal then turned on the gas. But since there was no flame, it shut down and locked out. So since the gas started flowing, can I have a flame source in there to light it?

Thanks. It cold today in NJ and our one little electric heater is not enough.

Please help. Thank You.
