I'm looking into buying
a cabin heater
for a small live-in boat
. The main reason is because last winter (without heater) everything got very damp.
My question is whether I should get a sealed
or unsealed heater
I gather sealed is safer (and pricier). But my main problem is getting rid of moisture (from breathing, cooking
, candles, etc). I figure an unsealed heater will consume (moist) cabin
air, blowing it up the chimney, and suck in cooler (and therefore less moist) outside air.
But now I hear that unsealed heaters can produce
moisture, and that one should get an sealed heater to reduce
So what's the truth here? Will sealed or unsealed be better?
Side info: My cabin is (too) well ventilated, small (2m x 4m), and yes I have a CO detector.
