    Customer Questions & Answers
    By Clara from Chillicothe, Oh on May 15, 2013
    Can you turn out the pilot light in the summer safely?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on May 15, 2013

    Answer:
    Certainly. The pilot control rod can be accessed by removing the floor register. Switching the control to the "off" position will help to save on fuel costs during the warmer months.

    By Robert from Oklahoma City, OK on October 14, 2016
    I am looking for a small gas floor furnace with a width less than 24 inches. Will this be appropriate?
    By Chris C. on October 14, 2016

    Answer:
    This Empire floor furnace is indeed less than the 24" width you require. The overall dimensions for the 3588 may be seen on page 2 of the installation manual.

    Will this furnace work for one floor, about 600 Square feet?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 10, 2012

    Answer:
    This heater would indeed be effective to heat a 600 square foot area. For maximum effectiveness and distribution of heat, I recommend centering the furnace within the space as much as possible.

    My floor opening in the front room is 14 x 24. I want to replace the furnace with a new floor furnace. Do you have anything available in this size that would warm the whole house?
    By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on October 11, 2012

    Answer:
    Unfortunately, no. We only carry the Empire floor furnaces. These require floor openings of 32 5/16" x 20 5/16" (model 3588), 34 5/16" x 22 5/16" (model 5088), and 34 5/16" x 30 5/16" (model 7088).

    I have a house built in 1947 by my grandparents and the furnace needs to be replaced. The part that failed is no longer made. Is this furnace approved for use in California?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 4, 2013

    Answer:
    This unit carries a CSA certification, which allows it to be installed in all U.S. states as well as Canada. However, I do recommend checking with your local code office prior to purchasing the unit. They will have final authority on use of gas appliances.

    The unit meets the CSA standard Z21.86b-2002 and the ANSI standard is Z2231. It is likely they will request these standards to verify local code compliance.

    By Rob from Seattle, WA on September 30, 2014
    I read the manual and it says that the register can get over 200 degrees and shouldn't be walked on bare footed. Does it really get that hot? I'm concerned about our small children.
    By eFireplaceStore on September 30, 2014

    Answer:
    While the 200 degree temperature reading is an extreme scenario, it is quite common for the register to surpass 140 degrees during normal operation, which is hot enough to cause a 2nd degree burn after only a few seconds of exposure. This is part of the reason why floor furnaces have largely gone by the wayside. The only option to prevent burns is to set up a barrier around the register, which is not a realistic option in most cases.

    How many BTU do I need to heat a 1,000 sf house? layout of house allows for good circulation, poor insulation, snows sometimes.
    By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on February 1, 2012

    Answer:
    Generally speaking, you need about 35,000 BTUs to heat 1,000 square feet. However, with your poor insulation, you may want to look in the 40,000 BTU range for adequate heating.

    This is the type I'm looking for but I only need to heat 400 square feet of very well insulated space. Do you have one in a more appropriate size for my needs? I'm thinking about 8000 BTU.

    Answer:
    Unfortunately, this is the smallest model of floor furnace that we currently offer. Because these units where traditionally intended for spaces of 650 square feet or larger, the manufacturer simply has not produced a smaller version. We do have lower BTU units in a wall mounted variety, if that is an option for you.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
    Furnace works great, was easy to change. Had trouble regulating new thermostat so we reverted back to old one, and its workiing fine.

    This furnace is very quiet and keeps the house warm, though I don't believe it is as well-built as my previous one which was 50 years old. I wish the thermostat had numbers to designate the temperature rather than the lines.

    We have had the floor furnace in use for about five years....the old one, (also an Empire) lasted more then 20 years or so, and was used. It went unused for several years, and then when we set up the cottage for use again, it was just cleaned up, gas tank filled, and it ran great. Finally, it was time to replace it, and this new furnaces has been great. Only four stars 'cause the pilot sometimes goes out (don't know why, and neither does the furnace tech) Overall, a good dependable furnce, and it works without electricity. When we lose power, we just walk down to the cottage, and we warm and comfy!
