Re: New Northeast Liveboard - First Condensation/Mildew Battle

Wing, the Espar hot air system is a "closed" combustion system. The combustion chamber is vented directly to/from the outside, separately from the cabin air feed, so the air that comes out is wonderfully warm and toasty dry. No diesel stink, no exhaust gasses, no moisture. The only reason folks don't always fall in love with them, is that there can be some issues involving proper heat-up and cool-down, they can kick and spit like camels if they get insulted. So you can't just hit the switch and walk away, like electric heat.

But oh, so toasty warm and dry!
