    from Hammond, IN asked:
    August 25, 2022
    Since the heater doesn't require any sort of electricity for it to run, what is the power source for the blower kit? 
    1 Answer
    The heater itself may not need power, but the blower runs on standard 120 V power. It has a plug to run to an outlet.

    Must have when accessory for Empire DV35SG Furnace
    I replaced a 21 year old direct vent wall furnace with an Empire DV35SG direct vent gas wall furnace. The previous furnace did not have a blower but I'm very glad I bought this. The furnace does not run as long since the cabin heats up much quicker. Another bonus is that the wall immediately above the furnace does not get as hot. Very easy to install. The blower does not engage immediately so don't be alarmed if it takes 5-10min for it to kick in. The manual says this is normal and due to the sensor needing to heat up before the blower is engaged.
    makes a good furnace great by increasing efficiency, easy to install, works perfectly.
