The Empire counterflow unit is a very noisy blower. Can a variable speed be added to reduce the noise?
While this option isn't available, the fan should only become noisy if maintenance is needed. The fan needs to be cleaned with compressed air/a vacuum, and oiled annually.

Can a 15000 BTU wall heater be used in a small camper during hunting trips?
If the camper does not move and your insurance company/local building inspector approves it, you can use it. If it is on wheels, then you would not be able to use the heater.

I have an existing Empire vent free gas heater. The unit is about 20 years old and the pilot light is going out nearly daily. Is this something that can be easily fixed or because of the age of the unit should I just replace it?? Thank you.
That's something that generally can be fixed pretty easily. Your thermocouple is likely not recognizing the pilot flame. You will want to clean the thermocouple with a piece of emery cloth or high grit (1000) sandpaper. This should resolve the issue.

currently have empire RH35 up vent natural gas room heater - need to replace it - live in high altitude - what are your recommendations
We still offer the RH35
heater, if you like that model. The only options I would not recommend are ventless systems as they will not function at elevations above 4500'.

I bought a vent free 18,000 BTU wall heater from home depot and after 3 weeks, I had grey blinds and grey/black walls. Why would there be any sooting? It's a natural gas, vent-free heater in a 4 season room!
Sooting can occur when there is incomplete combustion. You can try checking the gas pressure to the unit or if there is enough fresh air for combustion.

Will the Empire RH 65LP operate at high altitude? My cabin is at 8700 ft.
Thanks for your patience. I've confirmed with the manufacturer that this furnace can indeed be used at your altitude. Because of the altitude, though, de-rating of the unit will be necessary. Empire does make a kit (part number P8644) that would properly derate the furnace for altitudes of 8,000 to 10,000 ft. Please remember that derating this unit for your altitude will decrease the BTU output by about 30%.

What is the difference between the Empire RH35 and the Empire DV35SG?
The RH35 is going to be a naturally vented unit, using B-Vent pipe, while the DV35SG uses double-wall pipe that both exhausts and draws in combustion air.

Are vent free propane heaters legal in my location; or, do all heaters have to be vented?
I am unaware of your state, Montana, having any ban on ventless hearth systems, but this does not mean that your municipality allows them. I recommend contacting your local code office to confirm that ventless systems are allowed prior to ordering.

I was looking at your DV210SG in wall natural gas heater; is this heater, which I believe is 10,000 BTU, enough for a 900 square ft room? Thank you.
If you have a standard 8' ceiling height, heating a 900 square ft space would require a BTU output of 31,500 and this heater would not nearly be powerful enough.
