It says that this Empire DV35SG direct vent gas wall furnace requires no electricity, so does that mean it does not have a blower? Without a blower will it effectively heat two adjacent rooms of about 700 square feet? Is it safe to touch while operating? Will it operate efficiently at 6,700 ft? What is it's efficiency rating? Can the thermostat be remotely located?

This unit does not include a blower as standard, but it can use the Empire DRB-1 Automatic Blower
. The unit is actually perfectly sized to heat a 700 square foot area on its own. Using the blower would simply speed up the heating process and even out the temperature in the space. Like the closed front heater you previously inquired about, this unit is safe to touch while operating. The unit is 68 percent efficient and should operate just fine at 6,700 feet. The millivolt thermostat should be located within 25 feet of the heater for best operation.

I purchased a home that has an Empire propane wall heater DV35SG. I want to use the unit, but was told that the top of the unit must be 4 feet from the ceiling. My unit is only about 32 inches from the ceiling (unit is in a finished basement).

Answer:If the ceiling in your basement is unfinished, then you will indeed need 48" of clearance between the heater and the ceiling.

Could I pair this to a smart thermostat and control it remotely?
By Will M. on December 29, 2016
Answer:Most all wireless remote thermostats used in the hearth industry work with a RF signal and would not be compatible with any Nest or whole home system. For further information, I recommend contacting the manufacturer of your home automation system for guidance on using a low voltage, wireless 24v/millivolt thermostat remotely.

What is the BTU output of this unit? What is the efficiency rating rating in percentage?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on May 21, 2012
Answer:Per the manufacturer, the BTU output rating for this particular furnace is listed at 23,800. This would give the unit an overall efficiency rating of 68%.
If the furnace was being installed in an insulated space with 8 foot ceilings, it would be suitable to heat an area of 680 square feet.
