Propex Heatsource HS2000E Gas & Electric Heaters Information

Our thoughts...

Propex HS2000E complies with gas safety regulations and are approved for use under the Boat Safety Scheme.

Propex Heatsource HS2000E 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 and electric boat heater kits can either be powered by mains electricity (230v) or gas, the dual option allows you to run the heater on your mooring via shore power (where applicable) without using up your gas supply. The gas supply allows you to run the heater while you are away from a source of mains electricity.

The Propex HS2000E will run on 230v mains electricity, Camping Gaz or Calor Gas (Butane or Propane) Cylinders so these heaters are ideal if you already have a shore power system and a gas supply fitted in your boat.

Why should I buy a Propex Marine Gas and Electric 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.

The gas and electric heater has the added benefit of being able to be used with a 230v mains shore power supply. Simply wire the heater in to your onboard main power system and the Propex HS2000E heater will utilise the powerful electric element with efficient heat exchanger built in.

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

Major benefits of A Propex Heatsource:

  • Economic Heater Kits
  • Efficient Fuel Usage
  • Fast Warm-Up Time
  • Fully CE Compliant
  • Tested to the Latest European Standards
  • Low Electrical Current Consumption
  • High Quality Components & Stainless Steel Burner
  • Quiet Operation
  • Thermostatically Controlled (Optional Timer Control Available)

The Propex Marine Gas and Electric Heater Kit

The gas/electric heater kits come complete with everything you need to get the heater up and running:

  • Propex HS2000E Gas and Electric Heater (12v/230v)
  • Heater Mounting Bracket
  • Electronic Thermostat
  • Stainless Steel Flue Pipes
  • Stainless Steel Marine Through Hull Inlet/Exhaust Fitting
  • Permanently Open Air Inlet
  • Permanently Open Air Outlet
  • Closeable & Adjustable Hot Air Outlet (to suit number of outlets)
  • Ducting (to suit number of outlets)
  • Ducting Y Fitting (to suit number of outlets)
  • Hose Clips (to suit number of outlets)
  • Vent Outlet Screws (to suit number of outlets)

Thermostatic Control

The Propex HS2000E kits come with a solid state electronic thermostat which automatically switches the unit on and off as appropriate to maintain the desired cabin temperature. The thermostat for the HS2000E features two controls, one for the power source and the second to set the desired temperature. The Propex heater can be run on one of three electrical modes so as to not overload your available supply (0.5kW, 1kW & 2kW) giving you complete control.

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 so easy to install in the most convenient location.

Propex Marine Gas Heater Efficiency

With forced air combustion and the Propex two stage stainless steel heat-exchanger, the HS2000E 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 Electric

There are three heat output settings available on the Propex Heatsource 2000E, 500W, 1Kw and 2Kw drawing a maximum current of 9 Amps. There is a powerful electric element with efficient heat exchanger built in when it is hooked up to shore power mains. The motor speed is altered to suit each power level to ensure maximum efficiency or, when on low 500w setting keeping motor and air noise to a minimum for night time running.

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 HS2000E 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 HS2000E complies with gas safety regulations and are approved for use under the Boat Safety Scheme.

Propex Marine Gas Heater Quiet Operation

Propex heaters are designed to be quiet in operation without compromising air throughput and heat output. As with all air blown heater systems there is always some air noise from a system that produces a healthy throughput of air, however, by using high quality balanced fans and smooth enclosed motors with ball race bearings, noise is kept to a minimum. Noise is also unaffected by high voltage, a common occurrence with battery charges, solar panels etc permanently wired. The micro-processor electronics regulates the motor voltage so that the fan speed does not alter between 10 to 15 volts.

Average Gas Consumption

The chart below reflects the consumption of gas if the heater was running continuously.

Gas Cylinder Usage
3.9kg Propane 27.5 hours
4.5kg Butane 31.7 hours
13kg Propane 91.5 hours
15kg Butane 105.6 hours
19kg Butane 133.8 hours
47kg Butane 331 hours
904 Camping Gaz 12.75 hours
907 Camping Gaz 19.0 hours

Fitting & Installation

The Propex Heatsource HS2000E is easy to fit and can be mounted in almost any direction (as long as it's horizontal), as the heater is room sealed it can be fitted in lockers or under seats out of the way in otherwise unusable space.
