    If you are tired of being cold each winter and want an easy and inexpensive solution, Empire's SR18T Infrared gas heater is something you should consider. It does not require venting and can be transported from room to room, wherever you need it. It can also be more permanent if you decide to mount it on the wall in a certain room. It does not use electricity, which will save you money on your electric bill. This natural gas heater has hydraulic thermostat controls and a standing pilot ignition system. Propane models are also available. It comes with an automatic shut-off and oxygen depletion sensor, which both add to the safety of the heater itself.

    What is a Hydraulic Thermostat?
    1 Answer
    A hydraulic thermostat is a type of temperature control valve. The valve has an internal fluid vial that expands and contracts with temperature. When a desired temperature is selected, the unit will continue to burn until the fluid has expanded enough for the valve to be shut. Once the fluid contracts again, the valve will again reopen, allowing the unit to burn.

    The Right Heater for The Job
    Needed to heat my pottery studio in Maine. The website had good and accurate info. When I called with questions, the person I spoke with was willing and very able to answer them all. He helped me make the right choice. It arrived exactly when they said it would. It's doing a great job. I've been comfortably making pots, even though it's still snowing outside.

    Purchase two of these outstanding Empire natural gas heaters
    I received two of these Empire natural gas heaters very quickly and well packed. I am very impress with these heaters. I now understand why these heaters cost a little more then all other heaters. The quality and performance of these Empire heaters is outstanding. I highly recommend Empire heaters to all who are looking for a top notch heater that will surpass all other heaters on the market. Good Job Empire.

    One of many purchased
    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!
    ProsBest reliable performance. Moist, even heat on demand. Quiet.

    Next day shipment was amazing
    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.
    Pros1. 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...)
    ConsThis 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")

    Great Product 20 years no trouble!
    I have been using this product in my cabin for 20 years and just now need to clean it! Great product buy this one and not the Junk sold by Home Depot, Lowes or Northern tool. This one is worth every penny!

    Just what my cold bathroom needed
    The item was shipped in a timely manner and was as advertised. I had to deal with customer service a number times to resolve a stolen UPS shipment, but it was resolved to my satisfaction. I would recommend this vendor.
