    Air Conditioners – What Fits Best for your RV

     

    Your comfort in your RV is a key priority, so be as comfortable as possible on even the hottest of days with one of our air conditioners. We have plenty of options available such as non-ducted ceiling assemblies, Coleman MACHs, Coleman Roughnecks and the Coleman park model as well as all the parts and accessories for your system.

    Being on the road under blue skies on a sunny day seemed like the dream of every RV owner. However, when the sun has other ideas like piling on more heat on everything else, your dreams might turn sticky with sweat and humidity inside your RV, and you’d wish for air conditioners.

     

    A good RV conditioner needs to have all the necessary qualities that will make you happy. At the same time, you need to be satisfied on how it works, how it looks, how it sounds, how it weighs, how much fuel it spends, and how much it costs.

     

    In short, your ideal RV air conditioner should consume as little power as possible, cools quickly, takes up very little space and runs quietly. It’s a long list but there is an air conditioner that’s just right for you.

     

    Size and features

     

    Your air conditioner should fit the size of your vehicle. A big motor home would certainly need a more powerful air conditioner. (Some are smaller units coordinated with each other.) Any mismatched sizes have so many disadvantages.

     

    If your RV is dark colored and has big panoramic windows, chances are it will heat up faster than those smaller in size or are lighter in color.

     

    If you are using your RV the whole year, you won’t only have an air conditioner to keep you cool in your vehicle, you can also heat it up. A compressor air conditioner can also be used as a heater with heat pump. They can keep you warm inside in colder days (inter-seasonal periods).

     

    Compressor air conditioners

     

    The type of your air conditioner will also depend on your needs. The compressor type works like a refrigerator with a refrigerant that circulates in an enclosed system. The compressor liquefies the gaseous refrigerant and sends it to the evaporator.

     

    The liquid absorbs all the heat from everywhere and cools down the room. Moisture is also absorbed from the air.

     

    Evaporative air conditioners

     

    Evaporative air conditioners use water as a refrigerant where the air is sucked from outside and passes over a surface that’s moist. The water evaporates and removes the heat from the air. It cannot dehumidify the air though, and is best for dry regions and moderate temperatures.

     

    Roof-mounted air conditioning units  

     

    Roof-mounted air conditioners are quickly installed and saves space. It is easy to retro-fit, and the storage space is also very minimal.

     

    The other advantages include the ability to cool directly via the inside air distributor. The outlets can be adjusted individually and evenly and they all take up so little space inside.

     

    Storage box air conditioners can be installed in the storage space of your RV, with the cool air directed upward through the ducts. The other advantages are the fact that it cools quickly, with flexible air distribution, and shifts the vehicles gravity downward.

     

    Through comparison with other air conditioners, the final deciding points for what’s best for your RV will be  energy consumption, weight and noise level.

  • Furnaces

    When the temperature starts to cool off and the evenings start getting chilly, it's nice to have a reliable source of heat in your RV, and we carry plenty of furnaces to fill that need. Not only do we have a wide selection of furnaces, but we also have fireplaces, furnace vents, furnace screens, accessories and all the parts to fix up your existing furnace.

Heating and Cooling – Weather Extremes Driving

 

Tired of enduring the sweltering heat all summer and then freezing as soon as the temperature begins to drop? Our heating and cooling options will have you enjoying your RV any season after you check out our air conditioners, vents, screens, furnaces, fireplaces, accessories and all the parts you'll need to keep your system running for years to come.

RVs, for the most part, are all-around vehicles. They are within our command whether we want them hot or cold inside, and not just the appliances and all the other things inside.

 

Using the climate control inside the RV is simple enough, but you need to know some specifics to make it work. You need to know the difference when to run the propane furnace versus the heat pump.

 

Keeping Cool

 

Some of the things that can help keep things cool fast on hot days inside your RV are simple actions before you can crank up you air conditioning units to help cool the place.

 

This would include closing all the vents in the bedroom, opening the vents on the front A/C along with the three vents in the living area, and shutting the door to the back area of the RV.

 

With the rear vents closed, most of the cold air will be forced into the larger part of the coach and help it cool down quickly enough. If needed, close all the shades especially if the sun is coming in the driver’s area.

 

Summer heat

 

The heat in summer is one large beast. Some HVAC may not strong enough top cool the entire RV. During extreme heat, it may be necessary to run the generator to power up the living room A/C so the RV gets cooled.

 

Some RVers declare that running the generator to powe3r the roof A/C is more fuel efficient than running the cab A/CV. Sometimes, however, you need to run both A/C units coming from the windshield.

 

Leaking heat from engines

 

For RVs running on diesel engines, you can close the bedroom door closed and all the rear AC/C vents for the simple fact that the rear engine diesel leaks a lot of heat into the back of the vehicle.

 

One long shot is finding a tree. If there is one near the road, rest up a while near that tree (till things cool down). Have the tree block the windshield or the driver’s side of the RV while putting up your awning to have as much shade around your vehicle as possible.

 

Winter cold

 

If you plan to do RVing in freezing temperatures, make sure you have a full tank of propane. The heat pump is build into the AC and can work great if used correctly.

 

However, the heat pump will not work when temperatures fall below 45 degrees. Don’t try to run the heat pump when plugged into a 20-ampere outlet.

 

It can only work properly if you plug it into a 30 or 50-ampere plug.

 

Thermostat setting

 

Cranking the thermostat way up when using the heat pump will trigger the propane furnace to kick in.

 

Many thermostats are set up so that both the furnace and the heat pump kick on when selecting a temperature more than 5 degrees higher than the current one. Try heating the RV with the heat pump setting the temperature at 4 degrees increments to keep the propane furnace from kicking in.

 

Heating and cooling your RV in extreme weather can be challenging.
