Forced air heating for boats

A forced-air heater for boats works by using a ventilation system to push warm air into the boat's interior. The system usually comprises a burner that burns fuel or electricity to produce heat, a fan to push the warm air into the cabin, and a network of ducts to distribute the warm air to different parts of the boat.

To use the heater, you must first fill the fuel tank or connect the unit to a power source.
Then set the desired temperature on the thermostat and switch on the burner. The fan will then push warm air into the boat's interior, enabling you to maintain a pleasant temperature on board.
