Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Diesel Heater Installation

Andrew & Kate Lamb

I wondered if anybody had thought about or had experience with the hydronic diesel heaters, which rather than blowing air will distribute hot water to radiators (or coils / fans), I was reading that some of the systems can be hooked into the generator and engine cooling systems and just top up with heat if these are off. Might be quite a neat and efficient solution also there is no need for an air intake (other than for the exhaust) - if the generator is going on several times a day anyway the heat from it could be put to good use also.

Hello Bill,


I looked for the Diesel Heater folder, could not find it.


I am leaning towards Webasto because this is what the factory installed on later SM's, but the Espar guys argue (of course!) that their solution is easier to service and maintain.


Thanks in advance,
