In a BlueComfort Premium system, a yacht air-conditioner and a diesel-fired boat heater are integrated into a single system. The use of a water heater guarantees full heat output, even at low seawater temperatures when inverse circuit operation reaches its limits.
This integrated system uses the same water lines, fan heat exchangers, air ducts and cabin control modules for both heating and air conditioning operation. For user-friendly operation, the main system is regulated by a controller and each cabin has individual controls to adjust the temperature and blower speed.
The BlueComfort Premium system offers two integration options: The basic and the deluxe version.
- Integration of a chiller A/C unit and a diesel fired water heater into one system
- Comfort like at home in any weather conditions
- Modular concept allowing multiple configurations
- Full range of solutions for any size boat
- System combinations available from 12,000 to 572,000 BTU/h cooling capacity and from 3.5 to 37 kW heating capacity
The basic version simply integrates a water heater into a coolant system using a 3-way valve. The valve guarantees that cold water does not flow through the heater, which could cause condensation to form. Both the heater and the 3-way motorized valve are electronically controlled by the air conditioning system. A special heater with a low temperature setting or additional thermostats are required in order to limit the water temperature to 60°C.
The Deluxe version includes all the features of the Basic version plus the integration of a boiler and additional air blowers or radiators within the system. It offers ultimate comfort for heat and service water. The mixing valve limits the water temperature in the air conditioning circuit to 60°C. A summer / winter switch allows the boiler to be used in the summer while the air conditioning system cools the cabins.
