1. What is the difference between the ignition types?

Millivolt systems operate without electricity to provide heat even in a power outage and operate with an optional on-off remote control or wall switch. The Intermittent Pilot (IP) system improves efficiency by eliminating the standing pilot light. IP systems include an on/off switch - add a remote control to light your fireplace from anywhere in the room. In the event of a power outage, your IP system can operate using a battery back up. For the Multi-Function Thermostat, it controls flame, light and blower.

Ask a Question
  • What kind of trim is used around this type of fireplace?

    This version doesn't have any trim kits available with it but is installed as a clean face installation.  For a clean face installation, your finish material will have an exposed edge, so you need to have a clean edge.  Otherwise, you could design a custom finish trim for the finish materials.  Thanks for your question!
