Residential Heating Selection Guide

This guide is intended to present an overview of the broad range of zone heating products we offer. For information about a particular product, talk to your dealer or download the spec sheet at www.empirecomfort.com.

Empire Heating Systems Residential Zone Heaters allow you to turn down the central furnace and heat just the rooms you use most. These systems also save your energy dollars by not suffering the heat-losscommon in a long vent run from the central furnace. The heat that’s produced in the room gets projected into the room.

Empire offers a variety of gas-firedheaters, employing three different technologies –Direct-Vent,B-Vent,and VentFree. Nearly all are available in LP and natural gas models.

Unlike a conventional furnace, most Empire heaters provide heat even when electric power fails.

The system you choose will depend on the amount of heat required, the efficiency you desire, the location of the heater, and local codes.


Vent-Freesystems draw room air to support combustion in a clean burning blueflame orradiant-plaquesystem. Rated at 99.9 percent efficient,vent-freeheaters release nearly all of the available heat energy into the room.

To ensure safe operation, all vent-freesystems include an Oxygen Depletion Sensor (ODS) to automatically turn off the heater if room oxygen level drops to an unsafe level.

Vent-freesystems are designed to provide supplemental heat and may not be used as a primary heat source.

Check local codes for installation requirements and ask your dealer to recommend a trained installation technician.


DV systems mount along an outside wall and have a vent-within-a-ventsystem to draw in outdoor air to support combustion and exhaust flue products to the outdoors. The vent cap usually installs on the outside wall of the home.

Because they do not draw your alreadyheated room air to support combustion, DV systems are among the most efficient of the vented heaters.

DV systems may be installed as the primary heating system.


B-Ventsystems use room air to support combustion and exhaust their flue products to the outdoors via a single pipe.B-Ventheaters can mount anywhere you have access to an existing flue or where you can install a vent run through the roof.

The ability to attach to an existing flue makes a B-Ventsystem an excellent replacement for an inefficient oil or wood stove.

Though less efficient than other technologies – because they draw the already-heatedroom air to support combustion –B-Ventsystems may be installed as the primary heating system.
