SAFETY INFORMATION FOR USERS OF LP-GAS
Propane (LP-Gas) is a flammable gas which can cause fires
and explosions. In its natural state, propane is odorless and
colorless. You may not know all the following safety precautions
which can protect both you and your family from an accident.
Read them carefully now, then review them point by point with
the members of your household. Someday when there may not
be a minute to lose, everyone’s safety will depend on knowing
exactly what to do. If, after reading the following information,
you feel you still need more information, please contact your
gas supplier.
SOME POINTS TO REMEMBER
•
Learn to recognize the odor of LP-gas. Your local LP-Gas
Dealer can give you a “Scratch and Sniff” pamphlet. Use it to
find out what the propane odor smells like. If you suspect that
your LP-Gas has a weak or abnormal odor, call your LP-Gas
Dealer.
•
If you are not qualified, do not light pilot lights, perform service,
or make adjustments to appliances on the LP-Gas system. If
you are qualified, consciously think about the odor of LP-Gas
prior to and while lighting pilot lights or performing service or
making adjustments.
•
Sometimes a basement or a closed-up house has a musty
smell that can cover up the LP-Gas odor. Do not try to light
pilot lights, perform service, or make adjustments in an area
where the conditions are such that you may not detect the odor
if there has been a leak of LP-Gas.
•
Odor fade, due to oxidation by rust or adsorption on walls of
new cylinders and tanks, is possible. Therefore, people should
be particularly alert and careful when new tanks or cylinders
are placed in service. Odor fade can occur in new tanks, or
reinstalled old tanks, if they are filled and allowed to set too
long before refilling. Cylinders and tanks which have been out
of service for a time may develop internal rust which will cause
odor fade. If such conditions are suspected to exist, a periodic
sniff test of the gas is advisable. If you have any question
about the gas odor, call your LP-gas dealer. A periodic
sniff test of the LP-gas is a good safety measure under
any condition.
•
If, at any time, you do not smell the LP-Gas odorant and you
think you should, assume you have a leak. Then take the same
immediate action recommended above for the occasion when
you do detect the odorized LP-Gas.
•
If you experience a complete “gas out,” (the container is under
no vapor pressure), turn the tank valve off immediately. If the
container valve is left on, the container may draw in some air
through openings such as pilot light orifices. If this occurs, some
new internal rusting could occur. If the valve is left open, then
treat the container as a new tank. Always be sure your container is under vapor pressure by turning it off at the container
before it goes completely empty or having it refilled before it is
completely empty.
LP-GAS WARNING ODOR
If a gas leak happens, you should be able to smell the gas
because of the odorant put in the LP-Gas.
That's your signal to go into immediate action!
•
Do not operate electric switches, light matches, use your phone.
Do not do anything that could ignite the gas.
•
Get everyone out of the building, vehicle, trailer, or area. Do
that IMMEDIATELY.
•
Close all gas tank or cylinder supply valves.
•
LP-Gas is heavier than air and may settle in low areas such as
basements. When you have reason to suspect a gas leak, keep
out of basements and other low areas. Stay out until firefighters
declare them to be safe.
•
Use your neighbor’s phone and call a trained LP-Gas service
person and the fire department. Even though you may not
continue to smell gas, do not turn on the gas again. Do not
re-enter the building, vehicle, trailer, or area.
•
Finally, let the service man and firefighters check for escaped
gas. Have them air out the area before you return. Properly
trained LP-Gas service people should repair the leak, then
check and relight the gas appliance for you.
NO ODOR DETECTED - ODOR FADE
Some people cannot smell well. Some people cannot smell
the odor of the chemical put into the gas. You must find out if
you can smell the odorant in propane. Smoking can decrease
your ability to smell. Being around an odor for a time can affect your
sensitivity or ability to detect that odor. Sometimes other odors in
the area mask the gas odor. People may not smell the gas odor or
their minds are on something else. Thinking about smelling a gas
odor can make it easier to smell.
The odorant in LP-gas is colorless, and it can fade under some
circumstances. For example, if there is an underground leak, the
movement of the gas through soil can filter the odorant. Odorants in
LP-Gas also are subject to oxidation. This fading can occur if there
is rust inside the storage tank or in iron gas pipes.
The odorant in escaped gas can adsorb or absorb onto or into
walls, masonry and other materials and fabrics in a room. That will
take some of the odorant out of the gas, reducing its odor intensity.
LP-Gas may stratify in a closed area, and the odor intensity could
vary at different levels. Since it is heavier than air, there may be
more odor at lower levels. Always be sensitive to the slightest gas
odor. If you detect any odor, treat it as a serious leak. Immediately
go into action as instructed earlier.

Page 15 for kit number.
• Mount wall furnace at a height so that the controls can still be observed.
• Interior Wall - Maximum vent length is 50 feet.
• Exterior Wall
• Locate Electrical Supply - Extension cords may
NOT be used.
• Wall Furnace Dimensions page 16.
• Clearances to Combustibles page 17.
What kind of venting application will be used?
• Single Flue - Wall Furnace comes equipped from
factory for this option. A 2” or 1-1/2” pipe may be
used. If a 1-1/2” pipe is used, it must be enlarged to
a 2” pipe prior to exiting the wall into the shroud.
• Direct Vent - An “Air Pipe Kit” is required and is
available for order. See page 15.
How will the condensate be disposed?
• To a drain - Wall Furnace comes equipped from the
factory to drain up to 3 feet away from the appliance.
• An Extension Kit and External Condensate Pump
kit may also be used. See page 15 for kit numbers.
• Humidification - Optional Heated Humidification Tray
Kit available for order. See page 15 for kit number.

How will the wall furnace be operated?
• Remote - external Millivolt thermostat, wall switch or
remote control. See page 15 for kits available from
Empire Comfort Systems.
• Manual - use the display panel to control the heating
level and turn the wall furnace on and off.
• Local (Internal Thermostatic) - Factory installed
temperature probe on the wall furnace with a builtin thermostatic function to control the wall furnace’s
operation.
• If it is desired to use the temperature sensed in
another part of the room, a wired temperature
probe accessory kit is available. See page 15 for
kit numbers.
• See Operation Instructions pages 7 to 12.
•
Notice: Following a power outage, this wall furnace
will not automatically resume operation when operated manually or with the internal thermostat. Once
power is restored, the wall furnace will automatically
power on in “Remote Mode” (--), and the original
operation settings will need to be re-entered. Installing
an optional Millivolt thermostat control allows the wall
furnace to automatically resume operation under that
thermostat’s control once power is restored. Ask your
dealer for details.
How will the venting be run?
• Straight out the back - Wall Furnace comes
equipped from factory for this option. Standard Rear
Shroud supplied. See page 26.
• In Front of the wall - Deep Shroud needed. Venting
option may NOT be done in Wall Mount installations.
See page 15 for kit number.
• Venting Guidelines pages 24 to 31.
• Maximum vent length is 50 feet.
•Notice: Clean all debris from the inside of the flue
pipe prior to applying the glue and final assembly
of the pipe. Since the condensate is designed to
flow back to the appliance this debris will be carried
to the condensate trap resulting in a clog. An “A2”
error will appear on the display panel if this happens.
The clog, and the work required to fix it, can be easily prevented by pulling a wet cloth through the pipe
prior to applying the glue and final assembly.

Non-corrosive Leak Check Solution
Move the wall furnace away from the wall and remove the rear
shroud from the wall furnace. Remove four 10 x 1/2” hex-head
screws and set aside. Determine if using a direct vent, single flue
venting system. Place the rear shroud against the wall and mark
the vent and gas openings. For single flue installations, mark only
the left hole (as shown in Figure 31). For direct-vent installations,
mark the left and right holes. See Figure 31. The wall opening
required for intake and exhaust pipes is 2-3/8” in diameter within
the circles made above. If the wall furnace is to be wall mounted
above floor level, install per the instructions included with the wall
shroud kit listed on page 15.
Locating Wall Opening
Locate wall studs and move the wall furnace into position. The shroud
has many holes and can be mounted into 16 or 24 on centers studs.
A series of holes across the top of the rear shroud corresponds to
the mounting holes to aide in aligning the mounting holes with the
wall studs. When mounted directly on the floor, plastic anchors can
be used. Ensure that the vent and gas line openings will be located
between wall studs. Ensure the wall furnace is level, adjust legs on
the bottom of the unit if necessary. See Figure 29.
Figure 31
Installing Rear Shroud
After cutting the opening for the vent and gas line, place the shroud
back into position against the wall and secure in place. The shroud
should be mounted to the wall studs, if possible, using the four 10
x 1-1/2” hex-head screws provided. Two screws in top holes and
two screws in bottom holes. See Figure 32.
Figure 29
Use masking or painter’s tape to mark the location of the two top
corners of the rear shroud against the wall. See Figure 30.
Figure 32
If installing the wall furnace on the floor, the rear shroud may be
anchored solidly to the wall using the four plastic anchors (not
provided) and four 10 x 1-1/2” (38mm) hex-head screws (provided).
WARNING
Figure 30
32084-6-0214
DO NOT use plastic anchors if installing the wall furnace off
of the floor. The wall furnace must be secured to the studs;
it may fall causing damage possible harm. Wall furnaces
installed on the floor may be secured to the wall may use
plastic anchors.

WARNING - FIRE OR EXPLOSION HAZARD
Never test for leaks with an open flame. Check all connections using a commercially available soap solution. A fire or
explosion may result causing property damage, personal
injury or loss of life. Failure to follow the safety warnings
exactly could result in serious injury, death or property
damage.
After gas piping to the wall furnace is complete, all connections
must be tested for gas leaks. This includes pipe connections at
the main gas valve, emergency shutoff valve and flexible gas connectors (if applicable). The soap and water solution can be applied
on each joint or union using a small paintbrush. If any bubbling is
observed, the connection is not sealed adequately and must be
retightened. Repeat the tightening and soap check process until
the bubbling ceases.

WALL FURNACE INSTALLATION
VENTING REQUIREMENTS
WARNING
This appliance must not be vented with any other appliances, even if that appliance is of the condensing type. Common venting can result in severe corrosion of other appliances or their venting and can allow combustion gases to
escape through such appliances or vents. Do not vent the
wall furnace into a fireplace chimney or building chase. The
flue exhaust pipe must be vented outside.
WARNING
Upon completion of the installation, carefully inspect the entire flue system to ensure it is properly sealed. DO NOT use
any vent material other than what is specified in this manual.
Leaks in the flue system can result in serious personal injury
or death due to exposure of flue products, including carbon
monoxide.
Maximum Vent Length is 50 feet. Each 90° elbow used in the
vent system will be the equivalent to three feet, and each 45°
elbow is equivalent to 1.5 feet, which should be added to the
overall vent length. The vent terminal does not contribute to the
overall vent length measurement.
Notice: If vent length requirements are not followed, the wall
furnace will not operate properly.
Vent Freezing Protection
When the vent pipe is exposed to temperatures below freezing
(i.e. when it passes through unheated spaces, chimneys, etc.) The
pipe must be insulated with 1/2 inch thick sponge rubber insulation, Armaflex-type insulation or equivalent (Ameraflex is a registered trademark of Amaracell). Insulating pipe is important to avoid
condensate icing. See Figure 37.
The UltraSaver is classified as a “Category IV” appliance, which
requires special venting materials and installation procedures.
Installations can be Conventional (one-pipe) and Direct Vent
(two-pipe). Venting must be completed with 1-1/2 or 2 inch diameter pipe. In selecting a location for installation, it is necessary to
provide adequate clearances for servicing and proper installation.
All vent and combustion air pipes and fittings must be Schedule
40 PVC and meet the ANSI/ASTM Standard D1785. Cement
must conform to ASTM Standard D2564. Empire approved poly
pipe with gasketed joints may also be used. Contact your Empire
dealer for availability. The use of vent tubes not approved by the
manufacturer may result in unsatisfactory performance.
The flue exhaust pipe and inlet air pipe should be located between
wall studs. If an existing unit is being replaced, the flue exhaust
and inlet pipes may be run continuously through the existing flue
pipe or wall opening. See page 15 for special termination kits. The
required opening for venting is 1-7/8 inch in diameter for 1-1/2 inch
pipe, and 2-3/8 inch diameter for two inch pipe.
The flue outlet must be at least twelve inches from any opening
which flue gases could enter the building. See Figure 36. The flue
outlet must be a minimum distance of three feet from any pressure
regulator.
The bottom of the exhaust vent terminal and the air intake must
be located at least twelve inches above grade or the maximum
snow level.
The pipe must be supported every three feet on horizontal runs
and every 10 feet on vertical runs. All horizontal runs must be
pitched ¼ inch per foot towards the wall furnace.
Notice: If the vent run dips or sags, condensation may become
trapped and cause the wall furnace to not operate properly.
The minimum vent length protruding from outside the wall is ten
inches. For two-pipe installation, a minimum distance of five inches from pipe centers and maximum distance of 24 inches must be
maintained between the pipes. See Page 30.
32084-6-0214
Figure 37
The minimum flue length off the wall is 10”.
The bottom of the exhaust vent terminal and the air intake shall
be located at least 12 inches above grade or expected snow level.
WARNING
The nearest point of the vent cap should be a minimum
horizontal distant of three feet (0.91m) from any pressure
regulator. In case of regulator malfunction, the three feet
(0.91m) distance will reduce the chance of gas entering the
vent cap.
Notice: Clean all debris from the inside of the flue pipe prior
to applying the glue and final assembly of the pipe. Since the
condensate is designed to flow back to the appliance this debris
will be carried to the condensate trap resulting in a clog. An “A2”
error will appear on the display panel if this happens. The clog,
and the work required to fix it, can be easily prevented by pulling
a wet cloth through the pipe prior to applying the glue and final
assembly.
Page 25
WALL FURNACE INSTALLATION
VENTING
Install Vent Termination and Piping
The UltraSaver may be installed with up to 50’ equivalent length
venting.
To prevent flue pipe from pushing back into the wall, place a hose
clamp on the pipe against the wall and tighten. See Figure 39.
Notice: For each 45° elbow installed in the run, the length
of the run MUST be reduced by 1.5 feet (45 cm). Reduce the
length of the run three feet (91.4 cm) for every 90° elbow. The
vent terminal elbow does not contribute to the overall vent
length measurement.
See pages 28 through 31 for vent termination and vent run examples and requirements.
This unit is vented directly out the back using 1-1/2” or 2” PVC
pipe. See Figure 36 for exterior vent hole location.
If 1-1/2” pipe is used, it must be enlarged to 2” pipe prior to exiting the wall into the shroud.
If venting out the back through the wall is not possible (such as
in a basement) the vent pipes may be run in front of the wall (left,
right, or up) inside of the room using an optional deep shroud.
See page 15.
When venting through the wall, be sure to leave 2-3/8” (51mm)
of flue pipe extending through the rear shroud into the room for
connection to the inducer. See Figure 38.

WALL FURNACE INSTALLATION
VENTING
Due to the high efficiency of the Ultra Saver, condensate will form
in the heat exchanger and flue pipe. A condensate trap and drain
tube are provided to dispose of the condensate to a nearby floor
drain. An optional humidification tray is also available to evaporate the condensate back into the room as humidity instead of
draining it away from the wall furnace. See page 15.
If draining the condensate away from the wall furnace, route the
condensate drain tube provided in the instruction envelope to the
elbow on the tube sticking through the back of the wall furnace
to a nearby drain. See Figure 41. The elbow may be rotated to
direct the hose to either side or straight down. Eliminate all sags
or dips as they may prevent drainage. An optional drain tube
extension kit and optional condensate pump kit accessory are
available. See page 15.
Carefully push the wall furnace back into position against the rear
shroud and connect the flue pipe to the inducer.
Attach the wall furnace to the rear shroud by using four 10 x 1/2”
(13mm) hex-head screws previously removed (see page 21). See
Figure 42. Do not tighten the screws.
Reinstall the filter door by inserting the filter door tabs into the
two receiving slots on top of the rear shroud. Close the filter door,
then adjust the wall furnace positions to minimize the gap between the wall furnace casing and the filter door. Tighten the four
wall shroud screws to secure the wall furnace in place.
Notice: Due to the mildly acidic nature of wall furnace condensation, check with local authorities to determine if a ph neutralizing
process may be required.
Figure 42
Figure 41
Notice: For floor mounted wall furnaces, ensure the adjustable
legs are all on the floor.
To complete inside installation open the filter door and, tighten
the inducer hose clamp with a 10-inch 5/16” nut driver. See

Max Vent Run - 50 ft. Equivalent
Optional Deep shroud kit
shown for vent run in front of
wall. See page 15.
When installing a horizontal vent termination, the minimum vent
length protruding from the outside wall is 10 inches (304mm) for
exhaust and four inches for intake air. See Figure 47.
For venting, cap exhaust with 45° elbow and intake air with 90º
elbow both pointed downward.
Notice: All horizontal runs require a 1/4” per foot rise to run condensation back to the wall furnace.
Notice: For each 45° elbow installed, reduce the length of the
run MUST be reduced by 1.5 feet (45 cm). Reduce the length
of the run three feet (91.4 cm) for every 90° elbow. The vent
terminal elbow does not contribute to the overall vent length
measurement.

Notice: The vent terminal elbow does not contribute to the
overall vent length measurement. For each 45° elbow installed in the run, the length of the run MUST be reduced by
1.5 feet (45 cm). Reduce the length of the run three feet (91.4
cm) for every 90° elbow.
All vent components are supplied by the installer.
Notice: For vertical termination, the exhaust must be a minimum
of three inches above the inlet air pipe. The inlet must be at least
twelve inches from the roof line or the maximum expected snow
level as indicated in Figure 51.
Figure 50
Calculation example of vent run maximum 50 feet
Figure 50 displays a two-pipe vertical installation. The first 90° elbow must be added to the total vent length. The equivalent length
of the second 90° elbow also needs to be added to the total length.
The equivalent length of the third elbow does not need to be added
since it is the termination. The total horizontal vent length of the
flue system is 14 feet, and the total vertical length is 30 feet. The
two 90° elbows are equivalent to six feet, bringing the total to 50
feet.
