  • Gas heating in a box

    This may be old hat to you Yanks, but it was a revelation to me and many other Brits.

    I found this advert in this months OKWS newsletter. American ingenuity at its best.

    Hi Bern,
    Actually I think the idea originated in Switzerland(?) for the home radiant heating business.
    These units have been sold to go under the pond as well. I only know of people who use the coils in the settlement chambers or ponds but it can be used as a relatively inexpensive and easy way of heating. It is a closed system so nothing bad gets in the pond.
    They usually have a booth at MAKC''s show.

      Hi Folks,

      These kind of "circulation coils" have been used by people over here, including breeders for quite some time now. The unit as a whole doesn't usually look as tidy as the spec sheet that Bern posted though. :wink:

        Hi,

        The heat exchange elements isn't the issue, that's old hat here too.

        It's the 'ready to go' box with everything pre-installed for hook up.

        Marvellous.

          Convenience has its price. I think the cost for the ready go to box is in the $2,000 range. You can build a comparible system at home with a stainless heat exchanger for the $1,200 range.

          It is nice to have choices!

            Thanks Mike,

            I have to say I was dubious when I saw no price in the advert.

            It's still a very neat idea, but not $800 worth.
