Low Cost Convection Heating
Using Your Existing Hot Water Service

We came across this rather ingeneous system designed by John Gesthuizen, CMCA member from The Basin in Victoria. John hails from Holland where as we all know it snows in winter. His son is a heating engineer and this of course where a lot of these ideas originated. Basically all that is happening is water is circulated through a finned radiator. There are no blowers/fans etc. gobbling up your precious 12 volts! A thermostat is mounted under the cupboards away from the radiator. What this system does is take the chill off the interior. You don't get blasted with hot air etc. It is also a very clean non stuffy method of heating.

You can contact John and wife Rieky on (03) 9762 3119 or on email.
