Direct-Vent systems mount on an outside wall and have a vent-within-a-vent system to draw in outdoor air to support combustion and exhaust flue products to the outdoors.  The vent cap installs on the outside wall of the home. Because they do not draw your already-heated room air to support combustion, Direct-Vent systems are among the most efficient of the vented heaters. A Direct-Vent system may be installed as your home’s primary heating system.

Advanced technology makes these heaters more than 80% efficient A.F.U.E.  The 20,000 Btu DV20E is ideal for heating basements, family rooms or several small rooms. The DV40E and DV55E are perfect for heating large family rooms, offices, apartments or even entire homes.

The DVE55E (55,000 Btu) are perfect for Heating large family rooms, offices, apartments or even entire homes.

More Efficient Heating

Zone heating – using a gas-fired system in the room where you need the heat – is the most cost-effective way to improve the energy efficiency of a home undergoing remodeling or weatherization upgrades.

Almost any gas system can heat your home for a fraction of the cost of electric heat, but advanced technology drives these clean-burning wall furnaces to more than 80% efficiency (AFUE).

Empire’s High-Efficient Direct-Vent Wall Furnaces are available in sizes to fit most home applications. The 20,000 Btu DV-20E is ideal for maintaining a comfortable temperature in a basement or small family room. Empire offers the only high-efficient systems to exceed 40,000 Btu. The 40,000 Btu DV-40E and 55,000 Btu DV-55E are perfect for heating large family rooms, offices, apartments, or even entire homes – up to 2,000 square feet. All three models come in LP or Natural Gas. 

Quiet, efficient blowers (350 cfm for the DV-20E and DV-40E, 400 cfm for the DV-55E) help circulate the warm air throughout the room. These features deliver greater energy savings for a quicker return on your heating investment than with any conventional system

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Does our product work during a power outage?

    Yes, most of our appliances have the ability to be used in a power outage situation please see a local dealer for more information.

    What is the difference between, Millivolt and electronic ignition heaters?

    Millivolt fireplaces use the electricity produced by a standing pilot to operate the fireplace. Electronic ignition fireplaces rely on a power source to power the fireplace, this can be house voltage as well as battery voltage.

    Can I use a Wi-Fi Thermostat with my unit?

    Our units are designed to be operated by millivolts or low voltage, most Wi-Fi thermostats use 24volts and are not compatible.

    Where can I find my model and serial number?

    There is a rating plate attached to the valve of your appliance that will have the model and serial number information.

    Can you tell me how old my unit is?

    Once you locate your rating plate the serial number will help identify the age, the first two digits of the serial number denote the year of manufacture (21, 20, 19...) the next two digits identify the week of that year that the unit was built.

    • Researched and ordered my fireplace from US FIreplace Store. Pricing was a fair value however, the customer service was EXCELLENT! I had an issue with the direct vent venting. I called US Fireplace and the correct items were sent out the next day AND Janessa stayed on top of my return authorization and sent me the permissions and documents I needed to return the incorrect item and no cost to me, including return shipping. Overall, I am a very satisfied customer and my fireplace looks and operates flawlessly. I am glad that I selected US FIreplace to source my direct vent fireplace. Thank you for the great service.

    • I had placed an order, through Lowe's Home Improvement, for an Electric Firebox: Revillusion RBF42. Ordered 1st part of January. Was told I would have it in 3 weeks. When checking to see is it came in, was told it was delayed to 3/15. Was then told is was delayed until 4/25. Waited until 4/27 to check on it. Was then told it was now delayed until August. This firebox was going in a new Sun Room addition. I could not get my final inspection until the Firebox was installed. I went on line and googled for this same product. US Fireplace Store web site was given to me. This was on a Saturday. I call and reached a very nice man. Explain what I was look for. He checked and told me they had 30 of them in stock. I almost fell out of my chair. I clarified with him the product I was wanting. I ask how soon could I get it. He told me it would ship today. Again, was amazed. It arrived on the following Monday. What a pleasure and a relief working with US Fireplace Store and their employees. Exceed my expectations.

    • Great prices, quick delivery and fast hassle free services on the issue I encountered. I had purchased an electric fireplace unit that would not fit into the existing fireplace space. With one email I was able to get the wrong fireplace refunded and picked up at my home at no extra cost and the new one I purchased and delivered free of charge. Great company.
