Re: Planar Heater Install advice
Hi all I am new to the site but have browsed it and others a lot when I was looking for a heater for my tug. I just wanted to chime in here as I went for the Russian made heater and found everything to be just fine. The hardest part for me was cutting the holes in the boat for the ducting. Not the labour of it but the thought of it. I cannot believe the heat it produces,and the amount of air it moves. I have not been in a boat with a diesel heater before, so I can not give you a comparison but this makes more then enough heat for my boat.I have a Ranger Tug R29 and it has started getting cold up in Ontario, and it warms it up very quickly. Being my first install I had a lot of questions, and all my emails were replied to quickly and gave me the answers I was looking for. I have done a lot of research and I found the biggest problem with any of the heaters is running them at a low setting and having them carbon up. There really isn't a lot to these heaters to go wrong and I of course hope nothing does. I just wanted to let everyone know they do work and make lots of heat..and I am a very satisfied customer
