What are the benefits of "counterflow"? I would also like to remotely access the furnace thermostat with my smart phone by using a Nest thermostat or a similar product. Is something like this possible?
By eFireplaceStore on October 30, 2014
Answer:The primary advantage of a counter flow furnace is that it pulls air from the top of the room and forces it across the combustion chamber, with the discharge being at floor level. Because heat rises, this allows the furnace to give a more balanced floor to ceiling temperature level.
The furnace uses a basic 24 volt thermostat, but any 24 volt thermostat with a heating circuit could be used. Honeywell and Nest both make intelligent thermostats that can work with the 24 volt systems.

I have selected a heating company to install an Empire Wall heater and gave me the following product or model ECSFAW55INAT. He was unsure as to whether it is 55I or 551. What would the correct part be?
By eFireplaceStore on January 15, 2015
Answer:The product you are viewing now is actually the correct item. The "ECS" that was added to the front simply stands for Empire Comfort Systems. It would seem that they left the "P" out after the "I" that is normally listed in the model number. Because the "IP" stands for "intermittent pilot", it should be the exact same unit they are indicating.
