Is the millivolt ignition system a pilot light or ignites when used?

Our Answer:

The millivolt pilot system has a small flame that generates power for the unit's gas valve to operate, and yes, you will have a standing pilot. As a result, they do not require outside power to operate and can be used in the event of a power outage. The other option on some direct vent units is an electronic (or "direct") ignition, which utilizes electricity and does not have a standing pilot.
