This Tripplite seems like a nice UPS!

Inverter for Homemade Battery Backup

You can hook up as many batteries as you need in parallel. You could run your setup for quite a while in the rare case that your power goes out.

What about using a 3-port zone valve instead of a hard to find NC valve? Just cap the NO port.

I checked out the thread, but it causes more questions than before. My buddy suggested a more tongue in cheek solution: Run a pipe from the PRV into the firebox area and when the valve pops, it puts out the fire. Not a bad idea.
