CheapHeat Adaptable to 2-Stage Gas Furnaces

April 18, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

RV Comfort Systems has upgraded its 2013 CheapHeat add-on hybrid furnace system to work with the new two-stage gas furnaces. According to a press release, the new 2013 two-stage electric conversion kit will now work seamlessly with the Atwood two-stage digital and Suburban two-stage analog thermostats.

The hybrid furnace heating system is UL certified and Recreation Vehicle Industry Association (RVIA) compliant in both the U.S. and Canada, according to President Larry McGaugh. The product can be installed as an aftermarket add-on or new coach accessory on most recreational vehicles.

The CheapHeat kit consists of a stand-alone, add-on multi tap duct heater with two voltages and three heater settings, cabinet adapter, wire harnesses, controller and mounting hardware that connects directly into an existing central heating system to easily switch between gas or electric power to heat an RV.

“When an RVer chooses to run on electric heat rather than gas his coach will be heated by the electricity provided by an RV parks’ shore power and can heat most RV’s to outdoor temperatures as low as zero degrees,” explained McGaugh. “It’s not uncommon for a full-timer to go a year or more without having to refill his propane tanks.”

RV Comfort Systems is based in Bothell, Wash., and is the OEM patent holder for the CheapHeat electric heating system. The company has tested the product for more than 12 years and made it available for public purchase in 2007.

RV Comfort Systems Boosts Electric Furnace

July 27, 2012 by · Leave a Comment 

RV Comfort Systems has upgraded its “Stand-A-Lone” all-electric forced air furnace to operate with a high voltage blower, according to a press release.

With the new upgrade, the unit no longer needs a 12-VDC supply from a converter to run the blower side of the furnace. However, the furnace still operates with the company’s UL Certified, RVIA compliant controller and electric heater modules, which will help OEMs reduce parts inventory costs.

Park Model builder Stone Canyon Lodge, Haleyville, Ala., is now offering the new all-electric furnace as a factory installed option in their cabins. Along with the compactness of this new heater, it also gives the coach builder the flexibility to place the furnace out of the way in a small space at the bottom of a closet or cabinet as opposed to a gas furnace, which requires an outside wall because of the flue.

RV Comfort Systems, based in Bothell, Wash.,  is an OEM patent holder for the CheapHeat All Electric Furnace and Add-On RV Heating systems.

Stand-Alone Heat System Targeting Park Models

December 29, 2011 by · Leave a Comment 

RV Comfort Systems has introduced a new stand-alone, all-electric forced air heating system for park model trailers.

According to a press release, the new system does not require a gas furnace to be hooked inline with the electric heater. It has its own fan with cabinet and works with the RV Comfort System’s CheapHeat controller and electric heater. This system is UL certified and RVIA compliant in both the United States and Canada.

The system consists of a multi-position combination-ducted/plenum cabinet that allows the tri-stage heater element to be installed from either side so the system can be used in multiple locations. The press release stated that one of the product’s best features is that a trailer manufacturer is no longer required to place the furnace next to an outside wall for venting, which provides more flexibility in its floorplans.

RV Comfort Systems is based in Bothell, Wash., and is the OEM patent holder for the CheapHeat electric heating system for recreational vehicles. The company will be making its new system available for public purchase on Jan. 1. More information is available by calling 425-408-3140 or visiting www.rvcomfortsystems.com.
