BOTHELL, Washington — RV Comforts Systems has partnered with Twin Lakes RV in La Grange, Indiana, to offer factory-certified installation of its CheapHeat Gas/Electric Hybrid Furnace kits prior shipping of a new trailer, 5th wheel or motorhome to the RV dealer.
Under this new program after the dealer places their order with the RV manufacture, the dealer simply contacts Kim or Jay Douglas at Twin Lakes RV at 260.562.2372 or firstname.lastname@example.org and Twin Lakes will coordinate the CheapHeat install with the manufacture and the shipper (currently available for select RV manufactures).
The CheapHeat is an UL-listed/RVIA-compliant electrical heating option, an add-on assembly to any RV propane furnace, so today’s RVer can simply choose propane or electricity to heat the interior of the coach.
This unit is mounted directly downstream of the existing gas furnace and employs tungsten heating coils powered by 120- or 240-volts AC to provide the heat. The 12-volt fan motor on the furnace then pushes the heated air throughout the distribution ducting in the coach.
It can be configured into three different wattage ratings giving it the ability to heat a large RV all the way down to the single digit numbers, depending on the shoreline cord limitations.
The electrical heat source is 100-percent efficient and all heat produced is forced through the ducts since the heating core itself is mounted in the direct flow of the central distribution system. Compared to the burning of propane for comfort heating, which is approximately 60 percent efficient, the all-electric CheapHeat option is a viable option for serious coach owners to consider.
