water heater will offer air heat via radiators or fan blowers
and give a supply of domestic hot water for taps, showers, etc.
A water line is connected to the boats
Calorifier to give domestic hot water. From this line heated
towel rails and drying locker outlets are possible. This offers
the flexibility for summer use to avoid heating the cabins
A second hot water line takes heat to
the cabins. The hot water is converted into warm air via panel
radiators. This is the favoured approach, but adequate fascia
or bulkhead space will be necessary to house the panels. Alternatively
low current consumption fan blowers are available to work
in a similar way to a car heater. Blown warm air is then available
by switching the individual heater units as heating is required.
These can be linked to individual cabin thermostats for full
The water heaters own thermostat will
control the system temperature automatically, very much as
a domestic boiler does.
Eberspacher offer all the parts for the
system so there is no need to worry about obtaining the right
individual components. And a kit can be developed from the
available parts to suit your particular requirement.
