    I want to know if SR-10 model has any thermostatic control by bulb or other means. If not, what models do have this modulating feature to adjust heat output based on room temperatures?
    By Brennan W. on January 17, 2017

    Answer:
    There is a version of the SR10 that has a thermostatic bulb, which can be found Empire SR10T Infrared Vent-Free Gas Heater with Hydraulic Thermostat Controls - Propane - SR-10TLP.

    I'm looking for a vent-free propane wall heater for my bathroom. This one looks nice, but why would I pay so much more for it than a Procom?
    By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on October 22, 2012

    Answer:
    This is indeed a great option for your bathroom, as the 6,000 BTU rating is the maximum allowable for such an application. We cannot make direct comparisons to a ProCom model, as Empire is the only manufacturer of space/room heaters that we sell.

    When you say "wall mounted", does it mean that it can be surface mounted on the wall or can it be mounted between 16 inch OC studded walls in a new construction?
    By eFireplaceStore on February 25, 2015

    Answer:
    In this case, wall mounting means that the unit must be positioned on the surface of the finished wall. The heater cannot be recessed between the studs in any way.
    By Gina from Sulphur, OK on February 25, 2015

    Answer:
    It means that you can mount it on wall studs or that you can use anchors. We have 2 now and we love them.

    What type of regulator is needed for this Empire SR6 Infrared Vent-Free gas heater? I would be using a 20 pound tank.

    By Will M. on July 20, 2015

    Answer:
    The unit can be operated from a 20 lb propane tank as long as a regulator like the Maxitrol Universal Gas Regulator is installed to ensure gas pressure is kept below 13" w.c. Please note that as the fuel supply in the tank diminishes, heater performance will also decrease. However, the heater could potentially operate for 71 hours on it's highest setting with a 20 lb. tank.

    Can I use this to replace an obsolete space heater? How much space can this heat?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on June 27, 2013

    Answer:
    This heater can indeed be used to replace an obsolete floor heater. This model has a BTU rating of 6,000, which is capable of heating just over 150 square feet. However, vent free heaters are not legal for use in the state of California. As such, I recommend using a vented heater. If you would like to provide the square footage you are heating, I will be happy to check into a vented heater that may better suit your needs.

    Can this propane heater be used with a 100 lb tank of propane?
    By eFireplaceStore on January 28, 2015

    Answer:
    As long as the input pressure is regulated to the 11 to 13 inches of water column required by the heater, a 100 pound LP bottle can indeed be used to fuel the heater.

    By John from Minneapolis, MN on December 14, 2016
    I need an automatic backup heat option for a small 8' x 16' basement plumbing utility room. The entire basement is heated by off peak electric heaters, but if there is a power outage and the temperature will fall below 50 degrees Fahrenheit. I want the Empire SR6 to come on automatically and keep the room from freezing. Can this heater be left with the standing pilot on, and be controlled with an add on thermostat to come on and heat only if the temp falls below a set temperature (50 degrees)? The SR10T LP has a thermostat built in, but I am worried the SR10 unit is too large for the small utility room area and will shut off due to the oxygen sensor. The utility room is below grade and insulated, but has a door that can be left open to a larger family room with windows.
    By Brennan W. on December 14, 2016

    Answer:
    Unfortunately, this unit can not be wired to a thermostat.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
    These Empire Vent-Free heaters are the best thing since sliced bread. We have a townhouse with the heater at the opposite end of the house from the entrance and entrance foyer. Needless to say, no heat gets to that end of the house. The SR6 replaces an older unit that we have had in service for over 24 years and which is on 24/7 from November to April, except for when we are not at home. It fully heats the foyer, upstairs hallway, and contributes to heating the rooms upstairs. It serves to heat the entire house and we really notice it when we forget to turn it on when we come home on a cold day. The price at eFireplaceStore is great, especially with free shipping. It is the best place to shop for these kinds of products.


    Very attractive heating unit

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
    Installation was easy. Shipping was prompt. the manufacturer seems to be very responsive. I would prefer the thermostat to provide a range of heating levels. I'm not certain the pilot is set right; the pilot flame is +/- 1-1.5" long and the noise is somewhat annoying. I would still recommend this to a friend, but I would note the pros and cons.
    Pros:
    Very good compact size, Attractive, provides ample heat for our bathroom.
    Cons:
    Does not have thermostat control that allows me to maintain a constant heat at some level - it is either all on, or all off. The pilot flame is large and loud - it sounds like a small blow-torch.

    This is the 2nd heater from you guys. Was buying another brand and having to replace yearly. We have a 3 burner and heat a 16x56 mobile home with it. Works great. 1 burner was installed in a 32 ft 5th wheel our son is living in. Works great for it too. We have some long very cold spells in southern OK this year. . Has kept us toasty. And a bonus is that it doesn't take electricity.
    Pros:
    no electricity required.
    Cons:
    Don't stand in front of it to long, will scorch and melt polyester
