    Customer Questions & Answers
    By Audra Synol-Kruger on October 17, 2011
    I'm wondering if this furnace comes with a thermostat and a blower? How does it circulate the heat and how does one control the temperature?
    By Customer Service on October 17, 2011

    Answer:
    The blower and thermostat are not included with this furnace. You may select them from the Accessories tab on this unit's item page. Without these items, the unit would heat your room/home via radiant heating and would be controlled manually.

    I wondered if you could tell me the AFUE rating of the Empire GWT35 Gravity-Vented Wall Furnace. Thank you.
    By Brennan W. on January 25, 2017

    Answer:
    Per the manufacturer, the AFUE on this heater is 70%.

    By Jan from International Falls, MN on June 18, 2013
    Will the Empire GWT35 heat a 800 sq ft area in an extremely cold climate with no other heat source? If the heater is running "heavy" in high mode, can you estimate at how many gallons of propane this would use in a 24 hr. period?
    By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on June 18, 2013

    Answer:
    Yes, this GWT35 is capable of heating 800 square feet, particularly if your cabin is well insulated and does not have tall/cathedral ceilings. We recommend adding the Empire GWTB2 Automatic Gas Furnace Blower to increase the efficiency of this model. The 35,000 BTU output will consume approximately 40 lbs of propane in a 24-hour span.

    By Kal from MN on October 28, 2014
    What is the BTU input and output of this furnace?
    By eFireplaceStore on October 29, 2014

    Answer:
    The input rating for this model is 35,000 BTUs and the output rating is 24,500. This is sufficient to heat 700 square feet on average. Using the accessory blower will increase the overall thermal efficiency of the unit and will heat the space more quickly.

    How do you light this heater?
    By Collin C. on November 3, 2011

    Answer:
    This unit has a standing pilot that must be lit like most gas water heaters or furnaces. You will need to access the gas valve on the heater and switch the control knob to pilot. You will then need to use a match or lighter to light the pilot while pushing the pilot knob in on the gas valve. Once a flame is present, the pilot knob will need to be held for 1 minute to establish a good flame. The knob will then be released and the unit can be switched on. You will only need to do this at the beginning of the heating season. The pilot will remain lit throughout the season and can be shut down when the unit will not be needed during warmer weather.

    Is this "ready" for the wireless remote that is sold optionally? If the power goes off, does the thermostat still work, or do you control the unit manually? Is the optional fan, "sensor" controlled, or manually operated?
    By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on May 31, 2013

    Answer:
    This furnace can utilize the Empire Wall Thermostat with Wireless Remote Control. Yes, this furnace and thermostat will work with the power off. The optional Empire GWTB2 Automatic Gas Furnace Blower is controlled by a temperature switch and not manually operated.

    By Rex from KS on November 21, 2015
    Can this Empire GWT35 gravity-vented wall furnace be used in a bathroom or bedroom?
    By eFireplaceStore on November 23, 2015

    Answer:
    While the manufacturer does not specifically state against installing this heater in a bedroom or bathroom, it is not recommended due to the combustion air requirements of the unit. Only a direct vent appliance or a vent free with an input of less than 10k for a bedroom or 6k for a bathroom should be used.

    By Reina from New Mexico on October 4, 2013
    What does gravity vented mean?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 4, 2013

    Answer:
    During operation of a gravity type furnace, all the heat that is generated rises from the top registers to heat the room. The rising heat forces cold air to the floor, where it is drawn into the furnace and heated. This creates a sort of natural convection. The process can be assisted by installing an optional circulating blower.

    By Jim on November 9, 2012
    I'm interested in this furnace for a replacement for my cabin but would like a brown front, not white. Does it come in any other colors than white?
    on November 9, 2012

    Answer:
    This gravity-vented wall furnace is only available in white, as pictured. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please let us know if you have any additional questions.

    By Nita from nhiltzie@gmail.com on December 1, 2012
    When the pilot is lit on my stove, it is loud and seems to be burning way too high. This heater was just cleaned thoroughly and installed a day ago. I also have a new gas line coming into the house to the heater. It is so loud and burning so high that I am afraid to leave it on.

    The heater is hooked up to a thermostat and seems to work outstanding when it comes on. It just seems like the pilot at this point could heat the house on its own. Any recommendations for how to turn it down and have it still stay lit, or any ideas if something else could be wrong?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 3, 2012

    Answer:
    It does sound as if the pilot flame is adjusted too high. There is a pilot adjustment screw on the gas valve, which will be labeled as such. It may also simply say "pilot." The screw can be adjusted clockwise to reduce the flame size.

    The flame should be just large enough to engulf the thermopile. It should not extend past the thermopile by more than 1/2 of an inch or so. Reducing the pilot size should help to eliminate the roar and oversize flame you now have.

    The heater makes a loud sound when it kicks on and shuts off. It is a very strange cracking noise.

    The heater was a perfect fit for the opening I had. My connections were old and had to be upgraded, but the unit is heating well. I did not opt for the blower, since I am only heating a small space.
