Default Battery Back-Up for Pellet Stoves

I have a Harman Accentra pellet stove. Lately I have been thinking about some kind of uninterrupted power supply in the event of a power failure. This is mostly to run the unit until all of the smoke is exhausted out of the unit and out the exhaust pipe.

I've read about a few back up systems but I wanted to see what you are using. I've read about the following back-up systems.

SureFire 512H Battery Backup - problem with having a 12 volt marine battery inside the living room

APC (American Power Conversion) mode #BE750G and TrippLite model INTERNET750U
- Both of these seem to run off of D Cell batteries and will last only a few minutes

What are some of the systems being used out there?

I think it if it looses power the stove will go into shutdown mode anyways? Not sure.

It will, but according to Harman, the smoke will leak out into the room (how I don't know because the firebox is supposed to be sealed). The idea is for the battery back up to run it until the fire goes out and the smoke clears out the pipe

if you have it hooked up to a battery back up how will it know the power was lost and go into shutdown mode.

maybe what you are looking for is not an UPS(Uninterruptible Power Supply)

99yam - Good thought. I guess it was too early in the morning to think this through.

In the event of a power failure, the UPS takes over. One would then shut the auger down so it stops the pellet feed.

I think the reason for a UPS unit is to just keep the fan moving so it would push the smoke out of the unit through the exhaust pipe to outside the house. The fan does not shut down until the unit is relatively cool.
