Propex HS2000E Heater – Gas & 240v Mains Blown Air Heater
The Propex HS2000E heater is an automatic thermostatically controlled blown air heating system fuelled by propane/ butane gas or 230V mains electric. It comes complete as a kit with ducting and a single hot air outlet, see here for the additional kit.
Propex Heatsource blown air systems are used in many applications throughout the world, these include: Motorhomes, Caravans, Boats, Cranes, Horseboxes, Trucks, and RVs
The HS2000E is supplied as standard with a solid state electronic thermostat which automatically switches the unit on and off to maintain the desired temperature. When the room temperature drops below the selected level, the Heatsource will automatically ignite and run until the cabin reaches the selected temperature.
Easy to install
The thermostat is an easy to fit surface mount design and integrates with the new electronics fitted to the HS2000E heaters. Simple intuitive controls enable easy switching between the gas and electric modes and a constant heater feedback loop enable quick and easy system diagnose. Selectable electric hook up power levels easily ensures you do not over load your available supply.
With forced air combustion and the Propex two stage stainless steel heat-exchanger, the HS2000E is a clean and highly efficient way to heat your vehicle or boat. Air for combustion is taken from outside your caravan or boat and passed into the combustion chamber having been mixed with gas during three aeration stages, it is ignited automatically and heats up the large surface area of the heat-exchanger. The Heatsource units are totally room sealed and exhaust all products of combustion externally through the neat 22mm i.d. stainless steels flue pipe. To add to the efficiency, cabin air is normally re-circulated in preference to using cold air from outside. The HS series heaters are also very efficient on12 volt electrical current consumption drawing less than 1.7 amps on gas operation or 2.2 amps during mains electric operation.
For those using a mains hook up there is the option of using the powerful electric element with efficient heat exchanger built in. Three settings are available giving 500W, 1 KW or 2 KW of heat output and drawing a maximum current of 9 Amps. The motor speed is altered to suit each power level to ensure maximum efficiency or, when on low 500w setting keeping motor and air noise to a minimum for night time running. The heater is supplied with a mains cable and moulded 3 pin plug.
