The current model of Empire floor furnace that is a direct replacement for this unit is the Empire 7088 Gas Floor Furnace - Propane - 7088LP
. This model also uses a 5" flue collar and 1/2" supply line. The floor dimensions are exactly the same as your current heater.

Looking to replace my 44 year old empire floor furnace model# 7067 BTU 49,000 Rate 70,000LPG. Which one of your models will fit my space?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on August 20, 2013
Answer:Per the manufacturer, the next version of this unit is the 7088 floor furnace. I was not able to find the original dimensions of the 7067 you have now, but the dimensions of the 7088 are as follows:
Height - 27 inches
Width - 30 Inches
Length - 34 Inches
Register Width - 32 3/4 Inches
Register Length - 36 3/4 Inches
It is possible you will need to reframe the opening for this unit to fit. I apologize that I do not have more information.

I have a two-story, two room apartment. The kitchen and living room are on the first floor, on a slab. The second room is bedroom and bath and sits over a garage. Each room is smaller than 300 square feet. Is this furnace suitable?

I am trying to find a burner for my propane gas floor furnace, Model 5072, Serial #133677, 45,000 BTU. Do you carry the burners?
By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on November 11, 2011
Answer:Unfortunately, not. We currently only carry the 5088 furnace.
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 11, 2011
Answer:I apologize, but we do not have any parts listings for a 5072 furnace and Empire does not recognize this as a model number. Please verify if the unit is spelled Empyre or Empire, as both companies make furnaces, but have completely different product numbers.

I'm replacing an oil burner floor furnace with 70,000 BTU input. The present heater runs for a few minutes before the burner shuts off and the fan keeps running so the heat swings very high. The sq. footage is approximately 600; the house was built in the 1800's; do you think I should use the 5088LP or the 3088LP? Would a smaller unit help keep a more even heat?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 17, 2014
Answer:Your current unit is indeed quite a bit over the ideal BTU input for the amount of area to be heated. Based on the efficiency of these heaters, your climate, and the age of the home, the 5088 would be the best unit to use. While the 3588 is technically just a bit below the size needed, I fear the relatively cold climate will cause the unit to struggle to keep up. However, the 5088 is not far over the needs of the space and will definitely be a better fit over the current unit.
