No pilot on gas fireplace?

topcat_2010May 13, 2010

We are selling our home with a gas fireplace that apparently has only a gas valve. The inspector could not find the pilot anywhere and the problem is we never used the fireplace. Now my question is: Does a fireplace has to equip with a pilot? If so, what is the cheapest way to add one?

Many thanks.

Is it a manufactured gas fireplace with a glass front or a masonry fireplace with a gas burner?
