Heater selection [Need help - 2]
The second important purchase I am considering is a diesel heater, and I know basically nothing about these except that they burn diesel and make heat. I assume there is an outside air intake and some kind of heat exchanger, then an exhaust port and internal fans and such to force the warm air out into the space to be heated. What kind of variables should I be looking at when deciding on a heater, I know I have to do the calculations to make sure it will actually deliver the BTU's for the space, but other than that, what else should I be looking at ? Any suggestions ? I'm mostly looking for a place to educate myself I suppose, I need to learn more about these heaters, but most of the information I have found is vendor specific and doesn't give me much of an overview.
Talking low 30'ish foot boat and I definitely want diesel.
What are you pretending not to know ?
