I am on my second AC for my boat. My first was a King Air 19,000 BTU and it kicked ass. Only 1300 watts and more BTU pew watt than any other brand. It went BANG
and shut off one night so I thought it blew up.
I found Artic Air, in FL also, and bought their unit. When you compare them side to side, both are 19,000 BTU and only use 1300 watts AC, the Artic has thicker wall tubing and I think that is a plus.
My Grand BAnks Trawler
has a ton of glass and the unit sets under the settee and I also duct to the aft cabin
. It is reverse cycle and you could cook meat inside the boat it is so effecient on the heat side.
Artic Air is 800-230-5464
The King Air, I took it out of the boat when the Artic unit arrived and tested it. It worked great! I sold it to another boater on a Force 50 and it is still working great.
I found out you need to back flush the condensers to get the buildup off. I also have a bucket I fill with water
and acid I pump through it to clean. They work like new after you flush.
