    Howzit guys,
    Not sure if this can help, or if one can use this in the marine world...

    But apparently it can be used in households - saving up to 70% electricity (so they say).

    Do any of you have any experience with this?
    I'm not a big on the technical side - but this looks like it can work?

    Heat pump is used on swimming pools. It's about 4 to 6 deg hotter than solar panels. I have seen a 40th L pool get up 37 C with one of them. The nice thing is you can set your temp. The draw back is that they don't work if the air temp drops below 10 C. Price 14000 lts = +- R 10250.00 not installed

    Ouch - below 10 C...That won't work for me then...
    Someone told me that it will work down to -7 C. Will make sure.

    It can also be used to heat geezers...
