Every Town & Country Fireplace features the award-winning Maestro Control System, an on-demand electronic ignition system which offers a green alternative to standing pilots and can cut your annual fuel consumption by up to 74%.
The Maestro system consists of a small wall-mounted control and décor-series faceplate, which is wired to a standard-sized electrical outlet box and can be positioned up to 25' from the fireplace. The wall-mounted control system operates the on/off function and flame modulation, and houses a battery back-up system for operation during power failures. The system can convert to standing pilot at the press of a button.
An elegant hand-held 4-way programmable remote is also included with every unit. The easy-to-read, easy-to-program display offers manual flame control, a countdown timer, weekday and weekend programming capacity and temperature set-point operation (where permitted).
This industry-leading fireplace control system, available only on Town & Country Luxury Fireplaces, was recognized with a 2006 VESTA Award for outstanding design innovation.
