One is branded "Manor" and the other "Warmlite", but they
are identical Chinese production. You can set to 1kW or 2kW, and there is a thermostat. I am getting about 3x more useful warmth out of one of them than I did out of my now binned 2kW convection heater, and they are each about 1/4 the volume of the old heater. They are quiet, too -- quite a bit quieter than the fan coils I use with the hydronic heat. I am pleased
And they only cost 10 quid each!
In this climate, you may have to heat 12 months a year. Electrical
heaters are important, because the Eberspaecher is noisy and bothers people in harbor, and burns up diesel
to boot. I don't have air conditioning
, but reverse cycle A/C would be a great heat source for us. As it is, fan heaters for when we're on shore power
