Pilot on Demand System

Pilot on Demand System

As of January 2020, all Continental Electronic Ignition fireplaces will have Pilot on Demand systems with 7-Day Timers. This new 7-Day Timer feature has the following benefits:

  • The system is more environmentally friendly; automatically turning off your pilot when not required, which reduces greenhouse gasses.
  • Saves money! Auto-shut off ensure you conserve energy which reduces operating costs, as opposed to previous style standing pilots that remained on constantly.
  • The system is much more convenient as it switches off automatically at the end of the season and, being electronic, it switches on when needed again in the fall.
  • Regulations are changing everywhere to reduce energy consumption and governments have identified that standing pilots in fireplaces waste gas unnecessarily.
  • Standing pilots have been eliminated in other products like water heaters, furnaces and boilers in previous years. Electronic ignition technology has advanced significantly in the last 10 years.
  • Electronic systems still operate in power outage; as they include a battery backup system

Excerpt from Owners Manual:

This appliance is equipped with an “On Demand” intermittent pilot ignition system (IPI) which also includes a continuous pilot ignition (CPI) mode with an integrated seven day timer. This system minimizes your appliance’s carbon footprint as well as reducing its annual fuel consumption and operating costs.

In IPI mode, the pilot will ignite prior to the main burner, when the appliance is turned on using a switch, remote or from a call for heat with the thermostat (if equipped). Once the appliance is turned off (or the call for heat is satisfied), the main burner and pilot flame will shut down.

The continuous (CPI) mode is intended to enhance the performance of the appliance during the startup phase in colder climates and extreme weather by keeping the system warm when the main burner is not in use. However, the timer feature provides the convenience that the appliance automatically switches off the pilot when the appliance has not been used for seven days to save unnecessary fuel consumption.

When the CPI function is turned on, the pilot will remain on after the main burner is turned off. A timer will then begin the countdown for approximately seven days before
