    The answer depends on the

    cost of gas in your area. A pilot you can figure uses between $100 to $130 per year based on an pilot orifice .018 size natural gas orifice at about 7" W.C. gas pressure.

    I can e-mail you the breakdown of that on a chart if you contact me.

    Over a 25 year lifespan and with an average annual price increase of 5.7% that is a very serious number!
