    currently have empire RH35 up vent natural gas room heater - need to replace it - live in high altitude - what are your recommendations
    1 Answer
    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!
    1 Answer
    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.
    1 Answer
    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?
    1 Answer
    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?
    1 Answer
    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.
    1 Answer
    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.

    We have an Empire propane gas Heritage heater; it makes a film on our windows and everywhere else. It is a ventless. Is there anyway to stop this? I really hate washing my walls down.
    1 Answer
    Sooting is normally the result of a lack of the annual cleaning & maintenance that is required with any ventless gas hearth system. The instructions for this will be provided in the product literature included with your fireplace, stove or log set. If you feel this is not the case, sooting may also be the result of operating ceiling fans in the same room as the hearth while the burner is also on, burning candles in the vicinity of the hearth, or installing the hearth in a high-traffic area or near doors. Anything causing turbulence inside of the combustion chamber will alter the flame pattern and result in incomplete combustion.

    from Kempton, PA asked:
    October 27, 2016
    We purchased an Empire propane space heater about a year ago. It has a rating of 18,000 BTU. The control knob has 5 settings. We installed it outside in a semi-enclosed pavilion. Because it is in a remote location, we did not want to have a 100 lb tank. The dealer where we bought it said we could operate it from a 17 lb propane tank. The heater cuts off after 10 minutes of operation. We have checked the pilot to make sure it wasn't dirty and it is in a location where it is protected from the elements. I am wondering if the problem is a pressure problem because we are using a smaller propane tank. Any insight you could provide would be helpful. Thank you.
    1 Answer
    This does sound like an issue of the tank being too small. If the propane is exiting at a rate faster than it can evaporate, it's going to freeze up and stop the flow of propane. This will, especially, be an issue in cold weather. You will want to move to a larger tank to fix this issue.

    I'm looking for a wall mounted heater that can be used in an enclosed moving vehicle which has an oxygen depletion sensor and auto shut off, in case of rough road. It must also be vent free.
    1 Answer
    Ventless propane systems will often not have the adequate cubic footage to operate properly and will experience frequent shutdown due to an inadequate supply of LP. RV and mobile home owners will frequently purchase Electric Fireplaces to eliminate these issues.

    from Wolfe City, TX asked:
    February 4, 2016
    We are looking at purchasing a natural gas space heater to use in emergency power outage situations. It will not be permanent. Any suggestions about which one to purchase? Blue flame or Infrared?
    1 Answer
    Blue flame style heaters are more of a subtle method to heat the space, as they will heat the air within the space. Infrared heaters are more common as they will heat objects within the space effectively heating the air. For a more semi-permanent type installation, an infrared heater would be better than a blue flame heater.

    from Huntsville, AL asked:
    January 26, 2016
    Please explain the difference between infrared and blue flame space heaters. Is one the best or is it just the appearance?
    1 Answer
    Both heaters offers models with the same level of heat output and efficiency, but the designs differ in the way they supply heat to the room. Infrared heaters warm a room by warming the objects (furniture, appliances, people) as opposed to the air. Many customers find that this type of heating is more comfortable, as it does not create a stuffy zone around the heater. However, the heater is limited to the reach of the infrared rays. Blue flame heaters warm the air, as opposed to the objects in the room. They can effectively warm a greater area through circulation, but the space immediately adjacent and in front of the heater can be uncomfortable.

    I have an 1100 square foot insulated loft in a "barn" that has a natural gas supply and needs a direct vent heater or wall furnace. The 2160 square foot "barn" has a circulating in floor heat system that we keep at 55 degrees so the loft needs something to take the chill off when we use it. I am thinking we should have a 25/30k BTU capacity. An Empire or Williams brand has been suggested. What are your recommendations?
    1 Answer
    To heat the sized space in question, I would suggest a model such as the Empire DV25SG Direct Vent Gas Wall Furnace - Natural Gas or the Empire DV35SG Direct Vent Gas Wall Furnace - Natural Gas. With efficiency taken into account the larger model will produce around 23,800 BTU per hour. If these models seem to come up too short in providing the necessary heat, the next model is a bit different in design being a counterflow unit, but it would be an excellent source of heat. Please view the Empire DV55SPP here. This large model is capable of providing 41,000 BTU per hour.

    from Murphy, NC asked:
    September 19, 2015
    I have a 250 gallon propane tank and I want to install a 18,000 BTU vent free gas space heater. What size of regulator do I need to install in my 1/2 copper line feeding it? Also, what size would I need to run a 24,000 BTU vent free gas loft burner in a fireplace?
    1 Answer
    Any heater, especially vent free heaters, must be installed by a legally qualified professional installer to maintain warranty and for safety. However, any universal regulator that drops the pressure to between 11-14" w.c. is typically sufficient. The line size would depend on the length of run between the tank and appliance, but your LP supplier should be able to advise to the specifics.

    Would you recommend a vented or ventless type of propane heater for a basement?
    1 Answer
    Because of the relatively low amount of air changeover in a basement, I recommend sticking with a vented appliance. The vent free unit will consume oxygen at a level that will be difficult to make up quickly.
