instantly . I have a thermostat on the tank and if it cools down it will trigger the furnace to come back on and heat it up again. I have another thermostat that is triggered by cabin
temperature if I position the switch to that then i get free hot water
. Just food
for thought . I have no loops to the engine
compared to the furnace the BTUs are a moot point so I didn't add the complexity and potential for leaks
. Been running great for three years now, just change the injector nozzle in the furnace every year , 39$ thats it . And Im in Canada
and the boats stays in the water through the winter we spend 50 percent of or time there .
