Will this Empire DV25SG direct vent gas wall furnace be large enough to heat a 1000 square foot area and will it work properly at 7500 foot elevation?
By eFireplaceStore on October 12, 2015
Due to your elevation and required heating capacity, I recommend using a higher output intermittent pilot style of heater. This will ensure you do not have operational issues from a standing pilot type of heater and will have the output to heat the space. An example is the Empire DV40E High-Efficiency Direct Vent Wall Furnace - Propane

Will it operate efficiently at elevations around 6000 feet? Also, how big of a space will it heat?
By eFireplaceStore on August 11, 2014
Answer:Vented appliances must be derated for installations above 2,000 feet in elevation. The typical figure for derating is 4% per 1000 feet past the initial 2,000 feet of elevation. Derated for your altitude, this unit will have a rating of 21,000 BTUs. This will be sufficient to heat a space of 420 square feet.

Will this propane heater direct vent work at 6000 feet altitude?
By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on June 12, 2012
Answer:This unit will indeed work at your elevation. However, an adjustment to input pressure will need to be performed. The below is listed in the installation manual for this unit, which you can download from this item page. This information can be found one page 6 of this manual.
For altitudes above 2,000 feet, input ratings
should be reduced at the rate of 4 percent for each 1,000 feet above sea level.

Would this unit work in replacing the DV215 7SG, or would mounting modifications be necessary? If so, what would you anticipate? Does this unit run without electricity and does it have a blower?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 29, 2013
Answer:The DV215-7SG uses a square mounting bracket and has a 6.25 inch diameter hole for the flue to pass through the wall, while the DV25 uses a rectangular wall bracket and 7.5 inch diameter wall opening. The height off the floor for the vent outlet is almost exactly the same, so there should not be an issue there. The unit operates without electricity, unless a blower is added.

What is the efficiency rating for this unit? How hot does the outside panels get?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on August 21, 2013
Answer:Per the manufacturer, the listed steady state efficiency rating for this appliance is 67%. The outer casing will be hot to the touch, but does not get hot enough to cause burns in most areas. The outflow louvers on the top and top sides of the unit should be avoided during prolonged operation.

Can you control output on the DV25SG, if you do not have a thermostat?
By Kevin E. on December 19, 2016
Answer:Unfortunately, not. This furnace offers purely on/off control. A thermostat would be the only way to control its output.
