    Can this be installed on an interior wall and vent thru the roof?
    1 Answer
    Unfortunately, no, this furnace must vent horizontally out of the back of the unit, so it must be installed on an exterior wall.

    Hello, we are looking to replace our empire wall mounted space heater with one above. Could you please confirm that the empire dvc55sppxlp wall funace is vented, propane, 35,000 btu, can be used even if electricity is out, has blower and thermostat, able to heat a large room with high ceiling?
    1 Answer
    It is a vented LP wall heater that can operate at up to 55K BTU's. It can be connected to a Thermostat and has an optional blower. It will function in the event of a power loss, although the optional blower would not function without electricity, and will still produce heat.
