I need to install this unit with a vertical vent termination, can this be done??
By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on March 7, 2014
No, this furnace must terminate horizontally on an exterior wall. It does offer the capability to add an optional kit to make the vent run go up and then out horizontally, however. Please see Figure 12 on page 12 of the owner's manual
for more information.

I need to place this unit on an interior wall, therefore it needs to vent through the existing hole (vent) in the ceiling. Can this be done?
By Chris on November 21, 2013
Answer:Unfortunately, this appliance cannot be totally vented vertically. You can up to 10' vertically, but you must still terminate the venting through a wall to the exterior.

Can the Empire DV40E - Propane furnace be mounted on the wall?
By Tyler M. on June 30, 2014
Answer:Yes, this furnace is made to be mounted on an exterior wall, and the included rear-vent kit is included to complete installation. This includes a standard vent assembly for venting through a 10" thick outside wall.

Does this model need power? We are in an area that uses solar power and generator only. We only have power twice daily when we turn it on.

This unit does require electricity to operate its hot surface ignition system and circulating blowers. As such, it may not be the best item for your application. A standing pilot, radiant heat model, such as the Empire DV35SG Direct Vent Gas Wall Furnace
would be a better, if slightly lower output option.
