Empire builds a full line of heaters for nearly every application – from vent-free models (in blue flame and infrared) to wall furnaces and console heaters in direct-vent and B-vent. At more than 90-percent efficient our UltraSaver models provide more heat for your energy dollar than any other vented system you can buy. All of our Empire-branded heaters are made in the USA.

Vent-Free systems draw room air to support combustion in a clean burning blue-flame or radiant-plaque system. Rated at 99.9 percent efficient, vent-free heaters release nearly all of the available heat energy into the room.

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

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