Yes. If you have a gas fireplace or stove with a standing pilot, it will light during a power outage since it doesn’t require any electricity to activate the pilot flame. If your gas fireplace was manufactured in recent years, it might be equipped with an energy-saving ignition system that requires electricity to spark the pilot flame each time it is ignited. However, many models have battery backup systems that can be used to light the pilot flame during a power outage. Batteries should only be used in the event of a power outage because battery longevity can be affected.


Testimonials


I called this morning to schedule a cleaning when my stove started up so badly it wouldn't burn, expecting to see a technician next week some time, but when they found out that my wood stove was my primary source of heat, they said they'd be out in half an hour. My stove is running like new, and the two technicians made zero mess and were so friendly and polite. And to top it all off, they were great with my dogs and two-year-old son.
