    Customer Questions & Answers
    By Dennis from AL on November 14, 2015
    Do they make a kit to change this Empire SR10T infrared vent-free gas heater with hydraulic thermostat controls over to propane?
    By eFireplaceStore on November 16, 2015

    Answer:
    Unfortunately, no. Vent free heaters are certified only to be burned on the gas type they were originally intended for. Improper field conversion can lead to release of toxins into the air, which is the reason field conversion is not supported.
    By Tim from North idaho on March 25, 2016

    Answer:
    As per the description ....propane models are available!

    By Ken from Tacoma, WA on February 18, 2015
    I was thinking of using this heater in an RV van. How would this heater handle vibration? Would there be any safety issues?
    By eFireplaceStore on February 18, 2015

    Answer:
    This unit is fairly simple and can handle vibration without an issue. However, I recommend adding a source of makeup air in the RV when the unit is running, as it can quickly consume oxygen in the space.

    By Dan from USA on December 8, 2012
    Are vent-free gas heaters really safe? I was thinking about buying the Empire SR10T, but am a little concerned about the venting
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on December 10, 2012

    Answer:
    When installed and used properly, vent free heaters are indeed safe. It is important to follow the installation instructions exactly, especially when it comes to proper gas pressure and clearances from the unit. The unit must also be serviced on a yearly basis to remove any dust or lint that has been pulled into the gas valve or burner assembly.

    Empire wall heaters, such as this unit, have been in production for quite some time. As such, the technology has evolved to produce some of the cleanest burning and odorless heaters on the market.

    By Justin from Dillon, Colorado on February 6, 2014
    I have natural gas and live at 9600 feet. Do you have any recommendations for me?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on February 6, 2014

    Answer:
    Given your high elevation, I do not recommend using a vent free heater. The oxygen depletion systems that are part of the pilot assembly are calibrated near sea level. As such, they are prone to nuisance outages, due to the lower oxygen levels at your elevation.

    Instead, a direct vent heater would be a better choice, such as the Empire DV215SG Direct Vent Gas Wall Furnace - Natural Gas. I recommend the 15k BTU model, due to the slight efficiency loss and the derating that is necessary for your elevation. While the unit is more costly, it will operate reliably and uses outside air for combustion, rather than affecting indoor air quality.

    By Thomas from New Orleans, LA on January 10, 2015
    Does this model have a blower and thermostat available? If not, is there a recommend unit that does?
    By Kevin E. on January 10, 2015

    Answer:
    While this unit does offer thermostatic control, there is no blower available for it. For a unit with an optional blower, you would want the SR18T which is an 18,000 BTU unit.

    By Sam from Millville, NJ on January 15, 2015
    What is the difference between manual operation and hydraulic thermostat operation models?
    By eFireplaceStore on January 15, 2015

    Answer:
    A manually controlled heater will be on and off only, with no thermostatic operation. The unit would simply be switched on when heat is desired and switched off again when a comfortable temperature is reached.

    A hydraulic thermostat gives the ability to set the unit at a desired heat range and the unit will cycle at that setting. The temperature swing is usually +/- 2 degrees. The system works by utilizing a vial of expanding fluid. As the fluid expands with room temperature, it trips the control valve and shuts the unit down. When the fluid cools and contracts, it turns the unit on again.

    This is the latest one of many Empires I've purchased over the years for use in RVs and homes. I've never been disappointed with the performance or the even heat they provide. I've used several in high elevations without a glitch. I've recommended this heater to several friends and they're always as pleased as I have been with them. Great product!
    Pros:
    Best reliable performance. Moist, even heat on demand. Quiet.

    If this company's quality control stays on target then you will not find a better heating, longer lasting wall heater. I've heated my whole house "1700 sq. ft." exclusively. Built in the 70's as an all electric home, in weather to 10 below with a wind chill even lower. I use no other heat source, just one thermostat controlled 30,000 btu wall unit, placed in the middle of the house on an outside wall. I've done this for over 20 year, only having to replace the unit once in that time. This unit will last well past it's warranty time. I'm so confident in these units that I have bought a spare that I keep in storage. For as I've said: it is my only heat. Buy one, you'll not regret it...


    Next day shipment was amazing

    Dave
    from North Carolinaon

    Ordering and Shipping: I ordered the SR10T unit at this store after trying to find it locally because of concerns of damage in shipment. In the end, I ordered on-line because of the competitive price and free shipping. I accepted the normal shipping terms at check-out and much to my surprise the unit was delivered the next day! Installation: I contracted with a local installer to run the pipes and install the unit on the wall in my basement. They were able to do all of this in about 2 hours time. (it was a very short run to connect to the natural gas source) It only took 20-30 minutes to actually hang the heater on the wall with the 4 "drywall" bolts. Experience after 2 months of actual use: We are heating about 200 square feet in our finished basement room. Sometimes we open up a second room which adds about 50 more square feet. The SR10T is more than adequate for the space we're using it for. We are very pleased with the unit so far and feel secure that we have a secondary heating source should we loose electric power.
    Pros:
    1. Unit is constructed from quality materials and is small enough that it doesn't detract too much from the room decor. 2. Simple to operate. (Pilot mode, Off mode, 1-5 temperature range setting) 3. Easy wall mounting installation. 4. Reliable secondary heat source in the event that first heat source is not available(power outage, etc...)
    Cons:
    This is not a big deal but it is necessary to hold the Pilot knob down for 60 seconds when first starting up the unit. It would be nice it one could simply hold the Pilot knob down, press the "lighter" button and then immediately set the desired temperature range(1-5). (not a big deal, but a "nice-to-have")

    I am in a two bedroom 1320 sq ft SW Va . The heater is downstairs and even on lowest setting the upstairs is warm. Got it for emergencies but found it is awesome for everyday use. Heat pump just doesn't do it. I recommend Empire because it is made in the USA. Before bringing a gas heater into my home I searched for what I believe to be the safest I chose Empire. As you can see my Chihuahua enjoys the heater as well. I ordered this heater on a Sunday evening and it was at my door he next evening. I purchased from this seller due to price and shipping. Wow awesome choice!
    Pros:
    Made in USA Warranty Quiet. Heated the room without the noise of a fan
    Cons:
    I didn't buy sooner
