Life on the road has its challenges, but life with an Aqua-Hot Hydronic Heating System isn't one of them. Aqua-Hot systems makes your beloved RV lifestyle remarkably more comfortable by offering a quiet, fume-free system that produces even, moist heat and continuous hot water on-demand. No other hydronic heating system offers the features, dependability, or support of an Aqua-Hot.
At its most basic level, hydronic heating systems use tubing to run hot liquid into heat exchangers that disperse heated air. It is not unlike how a residential boiler heating system works. For hot water, coils with potable water running through them wrap around the boiler to transport hot water to faucets and appliances. The innovative use of liquids and tubing in the hydronic heating process results in moist, comfortable heat that can be evenly spread through the living space and bay areas of an RV; steady, continuous hot water in bathrooms and kitchens; and the option for engine pre-heating*. A variety of heat sources can be used depending on the type of hydronic heating system installed, but all use some combination of the vehicle's own surplus engine heat, on-board fuel (gas, diesel, or propane), and/or AC shore power.
To keep the Aqua-Hot running smoothly, it is recommended to have the diesel burner tuned up annually or after the coach has been stored unused for a long period of time. A tune-up should consist of a new fuel nozzle and fuel filter, along with a thorough cleaning of the combustion chamber. To ensure maximum diesel burner performance, always use the recommended fuel nozzle and fuel filter when replacing these parts.
