Forced air with hot water


Recommended Posts

Cars are scavenging a waste product to make heat for the passenger compartment. It's >100% efficient from a climate control perspective.

If air was effective at moving heat then the heaters in the old air cooled VWs would have worked a whole lot better.

Hydro air works best in my climate as a solution for problem areas, like toe kick heaters. If I were trying to heat and cool a whole house I'd want two systems each optimized for their specific task. It'd be cheaper over the life of the equipment.

seems like I had a VW in Germany that had a gasoline heater in it. I know I had a Tank Starter skid that had a gasoline heater and generator combined.

I call those systems hydro air

Yeah,

I know, so didn't the Corvair heaters. My family had a slough of those cars. They were the closest thing to having a snowplow one could have without having a snowplow. When everyone else was stuck, my family and uncles and cousins were all driving around thumbing our noses at the front-engined guys stuck in the ditch.

Anyway, my bad, like I said, I'd forgotten about those or I would never have said every auto on the planet was heated that way.

ONE TEAM - ONE FIGHT!!!
