Stus-List 37+ heat

I'm loving my hydronic system (Espar), I think though that they are more of a pain to install so you don't see them as much.  I can also heat wash / shower water with it, which is nice.

We have Espar (diesel) and Dickinson (LPG) aboard Paikea.  Recent work on the Espar reduced the number of heat vents to 3: aft stateroom, Head and under the chart table.  Too many heat vents pressure stressed the blower previously and “coked” the unit.  Really works well (blows hard) at this point and will drive you out of the boat with heat.  Most of the professionals I have spoken to feel the heaters should be used as hard as you can, as often as you can.  In other words, don’t buy more furnace than you need.
The LPG unit works well as a “take the chill off the boat” and “wow look at the fireplace” appliance.  We installed an efficient 12V fan just above the stove to drive the heat as far as possible.
I don’t hear a lot of people “loving” the hydronic systems unless you really step up and get a boiler.

For dry heat, Calder talks about a charcoal fired unit that is wall hung.  Can't find the exact reference right now.

Hi Josh,

A/C ducts would have to be significantly larger in dia than the heater ducts need to be due to the smaller temperature differential for A/C so I don't know if this will help you much.  The output for my Espar is only about 3" in dia at the heater and quickly steps down in size as it branches off at the different outlets.

I have photos of some of the duct runs.  I'll take a look this evening.

Ken,

I'm looking to better distribute the A/C in my boat.  I'd like to see how your heat is ducted.
