             Empyre Elite indoor wood boilers deliver all the comvort and convenience of convential furnaces while protecting the environment for the next generation to enjoy. Elite furnaces combine high efficiency heating technology and low emission smoke-free combustion with a readily accessible and renewable fuel to make wood the heating choice of the future.

How It Works

The Empyre Elite uses a process called wood gasification to produce highly efficient combustion in the furnace's dual burn chambers. Wood in the firebox burns from the buttom up, drying the top layer of wood in the firebox and pushing gases and exhaust into the lower burn chamber.

In the lower chamber, temperatures as high as 2000° F burn off all the gases. The fire brick lining in both burn chambers absorbs the heat and maintains burn chamber temperatures for consistent combustion. The high temperature gasification significantly lowers emissions, prevents creosote buildup, and minimizes ash buildup in the furnace.

After passing through the burn chamber, exhaust air is forced through multiple flues running through the water jacket, heating the water quickly and efficiently.



With self-regulating combustion controls connected to your home's thermostat, the Empyre Elite maintains constant home temperatures without stoking. The firebrick lining retains enough heat to reignite the fuel on demand, even with minimal heating requirements. Don't sacrifice comfort for environment- consciousness. Have both with Empyre Elite.


Gasification technology makes Empyre Elite one of the most efficient wood furnaces on th emarket. Equipped with Pro-Fab Industries' dual combustion downdraft system, proven to achieve more than 90% efficiency, Empyre Elite furnaces burn off all the fuel and gases. High efficiency means cleaner combustion, lower fuel consumption, and less work all around.


Empyre Elite furnaces exceed CSA/UL safety standards for indoor wood furnaces. The built-in Draft Inducer vents smoke and gases out of the primary burn chamber, ensuring that they do not escape into your home when you open the loading door. The Revoluntionary Air Curtain also keeps sparks from escaping when loading the furnace. We can sleep well at night knowing you're sleeping safely.

Low Fuel Costs

The Empyre Elite takes the lead in a new generation of indoor wood heating. Adding new safety components and a more compact design to the proven features of our EPA approved White Tag Pro Series high efficiency outdoor wood furnaces, the Elite series is a product of the most trusted heating family in the industry. Achieving more than 90%* efficiency and reducing emissions by more than 90%*, it delivers clean heat and can reduce your fuel costs by 50% over a conventional wood furnace.

Quadri-Fuel Equipped

Give yourself the ultimate flexibility with the Empyre Elite. Wood is a local, renewable, economical and easily accessible fuel in many regions, making it an ideal replacement for imported non-renewable fossil fuels. Quadri-Fuel Equippmed with oil, gas, and electrical backup options allow you to easily transition from one fuel to another based on cost and convenience. You can also set your furnace to switch from wood to a backup fuel when you plan to be away for a few days.

Operation and Maintenance

Empyre Elite is a revolution in indoor wood heating systems. It operates best with large diameter logs a few inches shorter than the length of the firebox, so there is no need to split wood or cut it into short lengths.

The wide loading door makes loading quick and simple. With new clean-burning technology, the Empyre Elite does most of the work - combustion and cleaning. When necessary, ash is easily swept from the lower burn chamber into the furnace-width ash pan. The Elite's Easy Flue design and the flue cleaning rod (included) makes sweeping out of the flues a quick and simple process.

The Empyre Elite is easy to integrate into practically any home's existing heating system. It can be installed into a 5" or 6" chimney liner and connects to floor heat or existing duct work with an air to air heat exchanger.
