    October 31, 2023
    Will this work at 5200' altitude and is there a longer vent kit?
    1 Answer
    This can indeed be installed at your altitude.  It will just need to have the gas pressure 4% per 1000 feet over 2000 above sea level.  Unfortunately, an extension is not available for this heater's vent kit.

    I am at 8,500 feet above sea level, is there an altitude limit?
    1 Answer
    That altitude will impair this heater's ability to function, even with derated gas and a high-altitude orifice.

    Do I need an air intake vent or an exhaust vent for this unit? I am considering heating a large room with this unit, approximately 1,000 sq ft. Do I need the blower?

    1 Answer
    This unit includes the direct vent components for the fresh air and exhaust (same pipe) and I would suggest purchasing the blower also to help distribute the heat into the area.

    December 31, 2017
    I have the DV215 installed in a cabin in northern Wi. that has no electricity. It is 400 sq. ft. and well insulated. The heater is fine in early Fall but can not warm the cabin when the outside temp. is in single digits. If I were to put in a blower would that do the job, I could run it with a generator, but can I then operate the heater without using the blower in milder temps?
    1 Answer
    The issue may not be solved by adding the blower as you have installed a heater that does not have a Btu rating high enough to heat the space. While you would need around 14,000 Btu and this heater has a Btu input of 15,000, the efficiency of this heater is 64.4%, lowering the Btu output to about 9,660. 9,660 Btus will heat a space of approximately 276 square feet and you have 400 square feet, so I would recommend considering a heater with a higher Btu input. The Empire DV25SG Direct Vent Gas Wall Furnace - Propane - DV-25-SGLP would be better suited with a Btu output of 16,750. To answer your question, you could always turn the blower off by simply unplugging the blower in the milder months.

    I purchased a 15000BTU wall furnace for a ice house it will not keep it warm. The ice house has 896 cubic feet of air space and it has 2" of blow on foam insulation. So it is sealed up tightly. I am using a 30LB propane tank. I would like to know if a 100lb tank would make a difference. Thanks Jerry
    1 Answer
    A hundred pound tank would likely make a difference, because your heater is probably causing the tank to freeze up in use by draining it too quickly.

    Replaced a 32 year old DV210 with a new one
    After 32 years of service, my DV210 room heater set off a carbon monoxide detector. Upon inspection, found much rust. There are many upgrades and ventless alternatives now and I looked at many. Just replaced and the swap was a direct replacement fit.
    Self contained Works without power Compact and simple. Vented, for use in a room where the grandkids stay.

    My 2nd Empire wall mounted unit in 20 years and I love it.
    So 20 years ago I did a house renovation and had a 250 sq. foot space that I could not get a heating duct to. I did some research and discovered the Empire 10,000BTU wall mounted heater. It seemed like the best option for the space. It was great. Kept us toasty in the winter.

    The unit had some issues last spring and rather than try to fix it I opted for a new one. I love it. My wife loves it. Good job.

    Quiet Comfort
    This unit warms our 450 sq.ft. mancave unobtrusively. It quickly brings our basement area up to a comfortable temp. It is easy to start and, with a remote thermostat, easy to control.
    Easy to install. The outside vent will make noise when it is hit by rain. The best installation would be under an eave.

    Very easy install
    If you can hook up a stove or dryer you can hook up this furnace. Very easy to setup and operate. Very happy with purchase. There is a lot of smoke when if first fires up so be aware that it is normal. If you read the instructions and manual it will state this.
    simple, reliable, easy to install and maintain the connection between the vent and the vent pipes is very snug but that's probably a good thing

    Great heater!
    We have heated a about 800 sq ft two story home in Akaska for more than twenty years with the above heater. I could not be happier with it. We have replaced ONE thurma couple in all the years with NO other problems. No worries about heat durning power outages. It is number 1 on my list of best buys ever.

    Great Heater but...
    My wife and I both like the heater, seems to be very efficient and she warm on the other side of the room
    easy installation, great heat The unit gets very hot when the front casing is replaced, after installing the optional blower(A MUST HAVE) we ran it without the front casing for a time and it blew heat everywhere however when I replaced the front casing it got hot against the wall. (I think this is due to the heat shield ) Possibly a bad design for the air flow

    This Purchase was Excellent!
    My mother has a small rental cabin on her property and we needed a new heat source for it.
    We were somewhat desperate due to being in the middle of a cold snap.
    While preparing the cabin to rent, we discovered the vent free gas fireplace, was emitting carbon monoxide at dangerous levels. We looked into a vented
    fireplace, but the unit and installation would have cost us $3800.00. Kinda steep for a little cabin Which only provides a modest income . We looked into gas wall furnaces, and found the The salesman we talked to was VERY knowledgeable about MANY types of heating sources. He really helped us find just the right size, type to suit our needs. We were able to get a natural gas console wall heater perfectly suited for the cabin at a much lower cost!
    Good quality for the cost. Can be used as a heat source WITHOUT ELECTRICITY! Easy to operate. Easily heats the whole cabin. Nothing against this unit. Possibly only that a fireplace with visible fire would we more visibly attractive.

    Excellent heat source !
    I used this for one winter a few years back to heat my new 1200 square foot home because I did not yet have my permanent radiant heating system completed. I did buy the fan kit later as well which is definitely needed if you plan to heat more than a single room. Worked great with no issues and kept the whole house warm and toasty. Used 600 gallons of propane that winter, same as my radiant system in later years. I'd recommend this heater to anyone...
    None I can think of.

    Ten Years Old
    I installed this unit in a 77-year-old cabin high in the Santa Cruz mountains. After using it for nearly ten years, it still does a great job of producing heat.

    Broken Thermo Coupler
    I used this heater for five years without any problems and was very happy with it. Last year, I had to replace the thermocoupler. Now, at the start of another winter, it appears that the thermocoupler is again broken. Unfortunately, it is not a cheap part since the unit uses the more expensive wired coupler instead of the tube version.

    No Need to Burn Fuel
    Our little heater, though not very attractive, keeps us from having to burn fuel in our vacation cabin. It keeps the pipes from freezing at 45 degrees on low, which is a better track record than other heaters which keep pipes from freezing at 60 degrees. We can use ours to dry wet clothes by placing them in front of the blower. Our children enjoy curling up underneath the heater to sleep.
