Espar has been manufacturing heaters since the early 50's.
They are designed for mobile applications where no traditional
heating system exists, as a second source or for special
WHAT IS AN ESPAR?
heating systems are a compact clean burning diesel-fired heater. The
heaters, while fueled by diesel,
require a DC electrical supply. The operation of the heaters are totally automatic.
With the thermostatic controller the cabin temperature is automatically maintained
Espar manufactures two types of diesel-fired heaters. Hot-air heaters from
and Hydronic (hot-water) heaters from 13,700 - 130,000 btu's..
1) Hot air heaters are designed to heat the interior by heating air and
transferring the heated air to remote locations via ducting.
Hot air temperature control is very similar to a home thermostat.
2) Hot water
(Hydronic) heaters heat water and pump the heated water to a remote
location where a radiator or heat exchanger with a fan transfers the heat to the space to
be heated. Hydronic heating systems are easily zoned to allow different
temperatures in each zone.
WHY DO I WANT ONE?
Some type of heat is necessary
on most live aboard or cruising boats. Even as far south as Southern California.
Where the passage of a cold front or in the evening it can get chilly enough
make a heater welcome.
Currently many boats are being equipped with heating systems and for a good
reason. The fall and early spring seasons are excellent cruising times, even
though outside temperatures chase most boaters off the water.
An Espar heating system can eliminate condensation, (with an outside cold air return),
and keep your boat dry and by eliminating condensation you will reduce mold, mildew, odors
and corrosion which protects your investment.
There is no need to run a noisy generator to supply cabin heat. Your Espar
system operates from your boats DC electrical system and the engine's diesel supply.
