Dual Air Conditioner Heaters

While cruising thru CompactAppliance I ran across these Dual Air Conditioner Heaters. I don't know if they would be of interest to anyone but you never know. Note that the 7K BTU unit is the only one that is 115VAC

Re: Dual Air Conditioner Heaters

Wow,neat find...we don't "plan" to "camp" in the bus when its cold ...if or when we fulltime it will only be in a place where a "small" heater will knock the cold off....I hate cold weather......gotta move south one of these days...I miss It...oh and at a lower elevation

Re: Dual Air Conditioner Heaters

I would guess that this is a heat pump or an AC unit with a heat strip added on, like the rooftop units. Good for light heating needs... not colder than 40F.

We stay in colder weather (we are using the hydronic system this winter) but for cool fall nights, it would work just fine.

You are right on the heat strip Lorna...my rooftop unit dosen't give very much warmth so there not very effective in cold weather. I am just using a fan type electrical unit for now, and like Bansil, don't like the cold very much...good thing too because its October and going to be 98 degrees here today

Re: Dual Air Conditioner Heaters

Today our high will be around 95F (near record high's for this time of year) but overnight lows are in the low to mid 50's. Sunday is supposed to have a high of 57F and an overnight low of 39F. By the end of the month, average temps should be low 70's day/low 40's nights. We seem to keep a 30 to 40 temp swing. Oh... joy? I do not like cold weather. I do not like snow. I do not like freezing temps. I do not like sleet. I currently live someplace that gets all that in the winter. YUK!
