How would one adjust the burner flame?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 10, 2012
Answer:Empire floor furnaces do not have an adjustment on the flame height. Much like a standard forced air furnace, they are only meant to cycle on and off with the use of a wall-mounted thermostat.
The only way to adjust the unit performance would be to verify the incoming gas pressure to the unit. Most regulators have a test port that allow you to use a manometer to verify proper gas pressure. I highly recommend having a qualified technician verify proper gas pressure, if the unit is performing poorly. Correct gas pressure is outlined in the owner's manual.

Does this unit use a thermostat?
on November 9, 2012
Answer:This unit does indeed use a thermostat. One is included with purchase of the furnace. However, thermostat wiring is not included as each installation is different. Proximity of the thermostat to the furnace will decide the gauge wire required. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.
