With freezing rain and arctic weather hitting a majority of the nation this week, losing power and therefore heat is a major concern. Electrical components within modern day gas furnaces are important for safe operation, though they also hinder use of your unit in the event of a power outage.
However, ventless gas fireplaces can operate without the use of electricity during an outage by simply lighting their pilot light. This is possible through a battery assisted piezo ignition.
Battery Assisted Piezo Ignition
All FactoryBuysDirect ventless gas fireplaces and log set inserts can ignite during a power outage because they have a Piezo ignition. The "PiezoelectricEffect" is the ability to generate an electric charge in response to applied stress. Essentially, an electronic piezo ignitor is a push button spark igniter that is powered by a AAA battery. These ignitions are commonly used in portable camping stoves, gas grills, and lighters.
