Get the look of a wood stove without the work with the Compact Vent-Free From White Mountain Hearth. The Compact 10,000 BTU comes standard with Empire’s Contour burner system that features precision-port technology to produce vibrant flames. The hand-painted ceramic fiber log set along with glowing embers create a look as authentic as a gas stove gets. Vent-free technology eliminates the need for venting, which greatly simplifies installation. The Compact 10,000-Btu model is ideal for bedroom applications – where allowed by code. Gain peace of mind by knowing Empire Stoves work during power outages. All Empire Cast Iron Stoves ship assembled in one crate, for easier set-up.
Two types of ignition, Millivolt (MV) and Intermittent Pilot (IP), are available with Empire Stoves. The Millivolt system lights a standing pilot with a push button piezo ignitor. Once the standing pilot is lit, the MV system operates with an on/off switch concealed on the back of the stove or with one of Empire’s optional remote control systems. IP systems eliminate the standing pilot for even greater energy savings. Pressing the on/off switch ignites the pilot, which then ignites the main burner. IP systems can also operate with an optional remote control system.
