Whether you are sailing for a day or a year, your boat needs to have a dependable air conditioner in order to keep you cool and comfortable. On the open sea, ambient temperatures can be stifling. When combined with the humidity, your body may not be able to cool itself. That is where our high-quality marine air conditioners come into the picture. Our world leading brand includes a variety of models well-suited to keeping you comfortable on your yacht.
There are several important factors you will need to consider when choosing a marine AC unit. The air conditioner's capacity, energy consumption, noise level and features may play a role in your decision. Not all air conditioners are compatible with all sizes and types of boats. These tips will help you make the right decision when shopping for a Dometic marine air conditioner.
Different air conditioners have different cooling capacities. You need to match the size of the indoor space you want cooled with the air conditioner's capacity. Our air conditioners deliver 4,000 to 72,000 BTU of cooling power per hour and are 27 percent more energy efficient than similarly sized models from other companies.
We use state-of-the-art engineering in our marine air conditioners. From the environmentally-friendly refrigerant R-410A to our innovative solutions that reduce vibration in the living spaces, you can count on our air conditioners to maintain a comfortable indoor climate, work efficiently and take up a minimal amount of space. Some features include rust-free drain pans, hermetically sealed units and vibration isolation mounts.
Our marine AC systems are old in more than 100 markets. Many world-renowned yacht and sailing manufacturers choose our products for interior climate control. Our products require minimal maintenance and are engineered to last in the harsh marine environment. The housing and components resist corrosion from saltwater and withstand temperatures of up to 140 degrees Fahrenheit.
We manufacture different sizes of air conditioners for marine needs. They require from 115 volts at 60 Hz to 230 volts at 50 Hz. It is important to verify that your boat's battery can consistently deliver this level of power to the air conditioner.
We understand that interior space is at a premium on all types of boats. We have engineered our marine air conditioning systems to be as compact as possible. They mount in line with the interior panels and conserve space. The tubing can be run inside of the interior walls or along the ceilings. The electrical box and compressor units take up 25 percent less space compared to those made by other manufacturers.
Zoned climate control allows you to set different temperatures for different parts of your boat. If one member of your party wants their cabin to be cool and another wants theirs to be several degrees warmer, zoned climate control makes this possible. We offer multiple zoned climate control air conditioners for marine applications. The condenser goes in the engine room, and the smaller and quieter evaporator units are wall-mount ed in the different zones. You can choose up to six zones in the setup.
Some of our marine AC units are effectively mini heat pumps. They can heat or cool a space. This is helpful for chilly nights and hot days. Our ECD and Turbo Series products offer both heating and cooling functions for marine applications.
