Power back-up for electronic ignition on a boiler?
When we lost electricity last winter during a severe snow/wind storm, the electronic ignition on our gas boiler (Burnham) would not work. We ended up with frozen pipes due to loss of heat. I contacted U.S. Boiler today to inquire about whether there is a solution, such as a battery-powered back-up for the igniter, or a way to plug the boiler into a generator so it could power the electronic ignition, but use the gas line for heat. They said a flat no, expressed no interest in developing a solution, and referred me to exactly no where. This seems like a common problem that could be easily solved, but I have no technical expertise, so perhaps I am missing something. Please advise. Thanks.
