Can this unit operate without electricity?

Our Answer:

Indeed it can. The unit comes standard with a millivolt valve, meaning that it has a standing pilot and generates it's own power for the gas valve to operate. If you opt for the Signature Command controls, you will have a 115 volt module that controls operation of the unit and upgrades it to spark ignition, rather than having a standing pilot. The unit has a battery backup that will allow it to continue operating in a power outage. The only aspect of this unit that would not work is the blower. This fan requires more power than a battery backup could offer and as a result, would not operate in a power outage.
