Hi,

anyone investigated if we can use EBERSPACHER heaters in our greenhouses?

they run from diesel. and consumption seems pretty low. see product brochure on hyperlink.

http://www.eberspacher.com/products/hea ... ating.html

they are expensive to buy but long term and rising electricity prices this might not be a bad deal?

Hi Joel, I have never heard of them but did check your link out. They sound good, not sure though for a greenhouse environment, I couldn't find any prices and I am guessing these are mega bucks so would be way too pricey for the greenhouse heater market.

They are very expensive to buy, and not so cheapt to run either.
The big drawback is they are noisy, or at least the ones fitted on boats are.

Had a quick look it looks good but for D2 but around £600 I thought they must be cheaper options out there.

That is an expensive greenhouse heater, they are probably too good for a greenhouse but not a bus or boat for that price.

yeah they are meant for boats i looked at the specs they seem to say 2.2kw uses 0.26 l of fuel per hr. and for its size its a tiny unit with an expensive price tag! :)

Before retiring from the ambulance service I remember that some of the ambulances had eberspacher heaters, they were quite often problematic, mind you we always got the blame for them going wrong!
