    Customer Questions & Answers
    By Julio from Taos, NM on November 30, 2015
    What is the maximum wall thickness for venting this Empire DV215SG direct vent gas wall furnace?
    By Will M. on December 1, 2015

    The maximum wall depth is 13".

    By Tim from Portage, MI on June 17, 2014
    Will this heater do the job of a room 22 ft long, 10 ft wide and 7 feet tall with good insulation? It is protected by a tree line ten to fifteen feet away from the outside wall. There are only two walls that are outside walls with high quality windows in them. Will this work?
    By eFireplaceStore on June 17, 2014

    This product will indeed provide adequate heat for your application. The sizing is such that a central location should provide even and effective heating.

    By Rick from Rugby, TN on August 4, 2017
    Is this big enough for a 621 sq. ft. room?
    By Owen on August 4, 2017

    Yes, that will heat up to a 750 SF area.

    By Bert from Mansfield, Ohio on February 10, 2012
    Can this unit be installed below a window?
    By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on February 10, 2012

    No, it cannot be installed directly below a window. Please see the following from page 9 in the owner's manual:

    "Direct vent furnaces are designed to be installed on a uniform outside wall. When the wind comes from any angle (up, down or from either side), it must hit the vent cap equally over both the air inlet and the flue outlet portions of the vent. Any wall projection, such as a door or window casing, which disturbs the wind on one side of the air inlet section will result in back pressure on the flue section smothering the flame and eventual pilot outage."

    Does a blower come with this Empire DV215SG direct vent gas wall furnace? If not, can I purchase one?
    By Tyler M. on December 7, 2015

    The Empire DVB-1 Automatic Gas Furnace Blower is optional and not required, but it can be purchased separately for use with this furnace.

    By John from Niantic, CT on September 12, 2015
    I have a bathroom that measures 8' x 12' with a 7' ceiling as well as a larger room that measures 12' x 22' with a 7' ceiling and 6" thick insulation in the ceiling. What brand and size of heater do I need to buy?
    By eFireplaceStore on September 14, 2015

    Given your relatively low ceiling height and well insulated space, the DV215 heater would work well for your application. Stepping up to a 20k BTU model would be a bit much. This unit is a well made appliance and should heat the space evenly and efficiently.

    By Jack from Crawley, WV on October 8, 2016
    Does the outside cap for the intake and exhaust pipes come with the furnace?
    By Will M. on October 10, 2016

    This product will include the venting needed for installation.

    By Sarah from Royal Oak, MI on January 12, 2016
    If my electricity goes out, will this Empire DV215SG direct vent gas wall furnace continue to work, even when my regular house furnace is not working (for the other part of my home)?
    By Will M. on January 12, 2016

    While the optional blower would not work, if installed, the heater will indeed work in the event of a power outage.

    Great Heater but...

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
    My wife and I both like the heater, seems to be very efficient and she warm on the other side of the room
    easy installation, great heat
    The unit gets very hot when the front casing is replaced, after installing the optional blower(A MUST HAVE) we ran it without the front casing for a time and it blew heat everywhere however when I replaced the front casing it got hot against the wall. (I think this is due to the heat shield ) Possibly a bad design for the air flow

    This Purchase was Excellent!

    My mother has a small rental cabin on her property and we needed a new heat source for it. We were somewhat desperate due to being in the middle of a cold snap. While preparing the cabin to rent, we discovered the vent free gas fireplace, was emitting carbon monoxide at dangerous levels. We looked into a vented fireplace, but the unit and installation would have cost us $3800.00. Kinda steep for a little cabin Which only provides a modest income . We looked into gas wall furnaces, and found the The salesman we talked to was VERY knowledgeable about MANY types of heating sources. He really helped us find just the right size, type to suit our needs. We were able to get a natural gas console wall heater perfectly suited for the cabin at a much lower cost!
    Good quality for the cost. Can be used as a heat source WITHOUT ELECTRICITY! Easy to operate. Easily heats the whole cabin.
    Nothing against this unit. Possibly only that a fireplace with visible fire would we more visibly attractive.

    good quality product for value

    Heats required amount of space to be needed (800 sq ft). Pezo & gas control valve hard to access if unit is mounted low such as 8" from floor.

    Excellent heat source !

    I used this for one winter a few years back to heat my new 1200 square foot home because I did not yet have my permanent radiant heating system completed. I did buy the fan kit later as well which is definitely needed if you plan to heat more than a single room. Worked great with no issues and kept the whole house warm and toasty. Used 600 gallons of propane that winter, same as my radiant system in later years. I'd recommend this heater to anyone...
    None I can think of.

    This heater is a good choice for heating a Small room or cabin. It takes no electricity and uses outside air. I'm using it to heat a patrol cabin in the hills near mt. Rainier.
    No electricity needed

    Slight dent in front, but most likely a shipping issue..

    Ten Years Old

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
    I installed this unit in a 77-year-old cabin high in the Santa Cruz mountains. After using it for nearly ten years, it still does a great job of producing heat. It has developed a bang when it starts and stops, but it may be a problem with the heat chamber, which is covered by a ten year warranty.

    When the first snow of the season came, I had just installed my Empire DV 35. What a joy to enjoy its warm heat in my Sierra mountain cabin while I watched the snowfall out my large window. That experience to me is the definition of Empire Happiness.

    Top Too Hot

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
    Because of the position of the blower, the heat cause the top of the unit to get very hot. It would be better if the blower were on the top part of the unit and directed the heat down toward the bottom.

    Supplemental Room Heat

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
    This unit was purchased for a rental property. Since it was installed very recently, I am unsure how it will affect the gas bill as of yet. I believe, however, that the thermostat is defective since the heater will not cycle on and off.

    Cabin Heater

    This quiet, efficient heater warms my 250 square foot cabin with no problem. The safe direct vent exhaust gives me peace of mind.

    Broken Thermo Coupler

    November 15, 2010
    I would recommend this item to a friend.
    I used this heater for five years without any problems and was very happy with it. Last year, I had to replace the thermocoupler. Now, at the start of another winter, it appears that the thermocoupler is again broken. Unfortunately, it is not a cheap part since the unit uses the more expensive wired coupler instead of the tube version.

    No Need to Burn Fuel

    from Nevadaon

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
    Our little heater, though not very attractive, keeps us from having to burn fuel in our vacation cabin. It keeps the pipes from freezing at 45 degrees on low, which is a better track record than other heaters which keep pipes from freezing at 60 degrees. We can use ours to dry wet clothes by placing them in front of the blower. Our children enjoy curling up underneath the heater to sleep.
