Why is the furnace standing pilot? All electronic pilots should be safer - the SPP55 is only two years old. Why is it not electronic?
By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on September 19, 2012
Answer:Electronic ignition is generally a bit safer, but it is a system that relies on 110 volts for operation and is not quite as reliable as a standing pilot. Standing pilots generate their own voltage and do not need a power source.
As time goes on and the electronic systems are perfected, I do believe they will become more common.

Want this model in Propane. Do you also have that? Also, the unit is almost 83" in height. My space is 84" ceiling to floor. Do I have enough clearance for this furnace?
By Chris C. on September 16, 2016
The propane model of this furnace may be seen here
. However, the furnace requires a 4" clearance from the top of the enclosure to any combustibles, making this model too tall for the given space.

Can this Empire FAW55SPP wall furnace be vented into an existing chimney with a liner in it instead of venting it with b-vent through the roof?
By eFireplaceStore on May 6, 2015
Answer:When used in conjunction with a 4 inch oval to round flue adapter, this furnace could indeed be vented into an existing masonry chimney by using flexible aluminum double ply liner.
