Propex Heatsource 2000 12v with Digital Thermostat Information

Our thoughts...

Propex HS2000 complies with gas safety regulations and are approved for use under the Boat Safety Scheme.

Propex Heatsource HS2000 gas marine heaters are specially designed for use on boats; they offer you the comfort of home on board without needing to worry about your gas or battery consumption as they are extremely efficient and best of all safe.

The gas boat heater kits are powered by a 12 volt power supply and run off either propane or butane gas cylinders to produce heat. They will run on Camping Gaz and Calor Gas Cylinders so these heaters are ideal if you already have a gas supply fitted in your boat.

The Propex heaters feature a solid state electronic thermostat control unit which automatically switches the heater unit on and off to maintain the desired temperature. When the room temperature reaches the desired level the new intelligent thermostat will tell the heater to stop. When the thermostat registers that the temperature has dropped below the set level it will notify the heater to turn on again. An easy way of having a consistent. This Propex Marine heater unit comes with the new digital thermostat control featuring a digital temperature reading display.

Why should I buy a Propex Marine Gas Heater?

The Propex marine heaters are ideal for all types of vessels, especially petrol engined boats and sailing boats with or without engines. As a lot of boats already have an existing gas supply for cooking there is no need to install an additional fuel supply specifically for the heater; unlike a diesel heater which would require the installation of a diesel tank and supply in order to power it.

Thus the Propex Heatsource offers economic heating kits, making adding heating to your boat cheaper than ever.

Digital Thermostatic Control

The Propex HS2000 kits come with a solid state electronic thermostat which automatically switches the unit on and off as appropriate to maintain the desired cabin temperature. There is minimal electric current consumption during heater ignition, so cycling the Heatsource on and off does not have the effect of additional battery drain. The thermostat is surface mounted with two fixing holes so easy to install in the most convenient location.

The new features of the digital thermostat include a digital read out of the current ambient temperature on an illuminated screen, easy to use 'up / down' temperature setting buttons and a count down timer can be set for the next time the heater should turn on (useful during the night if the running noise, albeit slight, is enough to wake you).

Propex Marine Gas Heater Efficiency

With forced air combustion and the Propex two stage stainless steel heat-exchanger, the HS2000 is a clean and highly efficient way to heat your boat. To add to the efficiency, cabin air is normally re-circulated, re-heating already warm air, in preference to using new cold air from outside.

The Propex gas heater is also extremely quiet, although there will always be some air noise associated with a healthy throughput of air the overall heating system uses high quality balanced fans and smooth enclosed motors with ball race bearings to keep operational noise to a minimum.

Propex Marine Gas Heater Safety

Heatsource blown air heaters conform to the latest European standards for both the appliance and the electronics and during the rigorous testing the focus is very much on safety. The heaters also have to comply with an enhanced version of the Electro Mechanical Compatibility Directive to ensure they do not interfere with other electronics and that they are immune from interference by other electronics.

The intelligent electronics are continuously monitoring the operation of the heater to make sure everything is operating correctly and safely. This includes monitoring of the flame, case temperature, combustion airflow, gas solenoid valve and voltage. Should any of these stray outside of the predetermined levels, the heater will be switched off and the red light on the thermostat will indicate a fault by flashing a certain number of times.

The Heatsource HS2000 heaters are completely room sealed and exhaust all products of combustion externally through the neat stainless steels flue pipe to the stainless steel marine through hull inlet/exhaust fitting.

Propex HS2000 complies with gas safety regulations and are approved for use under the Boat Safety Scheme.
