Ask & Answer
This gas heater from Empire is a very effective and simple solution to the problem of inexpensive home heating. It produces 20,000 BTU of heat without the need for any venting apparatus, and can be wall-mounted or simply placed on the floor. No electricity is needed, and the standing pilot makes ignition immediate and easy. The entire heater is covered under a five year warranty, and a number of safety features protect against any danger.
* Please Note: This heater is not designed for use when placed on the floor. To ensure proper safety and cost efficiency, place the heater on the Empire Heater Stand, product # CUI-SRS18 which is sold separately (See Accessories tab above for complete product information).

Great Safety Features

This natural gas heater supplements my central heat. The thermostat is easy to set and the pilot lights the first time. The safety features are a plus.

Great Unit - Will Keep You Warm
October 28, 2013
Be sure to order the fan kit as well it really works to throw that heat .You will have to install it yourself in the unit. If you want to have it free stand on the floor you have to order the stand or it can only go on the wall. The picture is showing it with the stand on it you will need to order it as an extra. This unit will keep you warm and you will not be disappointed . Good for 400 sq ft - not a problem.
Cons:
it was shipped in a box the glass was missing and so was the owner manual . they shipped me a new glass but they charge me for it . $36.00

Pleasant to Watch
September 29, 2009
Our frigid mountain cabin needed an efficient heater--this one fit the bill. We had expected the base to be included, but it was not, so we had to purchase that separately. To turn the unit on and off, you have to remove the glass safety panel. Since we have no children or pets, we just leave that off so we don't have to be moving it so frequently. The heater keeps the space warm; is pleasurable to watch the flames.
