Hi, I might be in a minority to ask about heaters in this forum but still.. I've been considering installing a matrix heater in which the engine cooling
liquid is circulating and fans heat the air in the cabin
I guess for usage during engine
running this is straightforward as long as the introduced extra pressure drop does not exceed engine's circulation pump's capacity.
What about in the harbour? Then I would need an electric
circulation pump. Then I would also certainly need a bypass line so that liquid is circulating also when the engine is running and the electric pump
is not. The bypass line would need a non-return valve to make pumping work + valve to control the matrix temperature. Then there is the boiler. I would not like to cool it down, only engine, so there should be valves to bypass the boiler circulation.
So.. very complicated - more joints, more potential leaks
, more valves to forget in a wrong position, possibility to overheat the engine..
Is it worth it or do I just turn on the Webasto?
