In climates with extreme temperature variations, this bilge heater may extend your boating season, but it will NOT replace proper winterizing of your boat. For additional information, consult your marine accessories dealer or BoatSafe, Inc. for recommendations specific to your boat and climate.
Simply put, warmer batteries perform better and crank when you need them. If you are a first responder (Coast Guard, police, etc.) or even someone who likes to boat on a cold day, your boat or generator must work. Protecting your batteries in the engine compartment helps them maintain the strength to perform.
BoatSafe® bilge heaters only operate when they are needed. It’s active heat window is set to cycle on at 40-45 degrees Fahrenheit and cycle off at 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Additionally, the 5 intake and 5 exhaust vents use forced air heat to warm the engine compartment surfaces, and heat is absorbed and retained by these surfaces. Boaters can further retain this heat by closing or covering all vents so that warm air does not escape.
Clean, dry boats without corrosion damage sell faster. Maintaining warmth below decks also helps bilge compartments stay dry and helps engines start warmer for less wear.
BoatSafe, Inc. has a two-year warranty from the date of purchase with no questions asked. If your BoatSafe® bilge heater is not working properly, we will simply send you a new one. If your bilge heater malfunctions beyond the two-year warranty, BoatSafe, Inc. will repair your bilge heater for a nominal shop fee and will include insured return shipping. We service every bilge heater ever made by BoatSafe, Inc.
I own a 1992, 31' Searay Sunsport. I keep my boat in a marina about an hour's drive from my house. There is no way I can check on my boat every time the weather gets bad! I rely on my BoatSafe heater to get my boat thru the cold winters that we get here in Texas. It brings me real peace of mind knowing that it's on the job, keeping things warm. It has given me almost 20 years of reliable service with no problems. Thank you so much for building such a wonderful product!
…I purchased my BoatSafe® bilge heater in October 2000 for my 36’ Carver Aft Cabin. During the below average winter of 00/01, it did a superior job for my twin Crusader 454’s and Onan genset. … The low temperature recorded in the memory of my Radio Shack thermometer in my engine compartment was 44 deg. … The attached order is for a JR BoatSafe® heater to protect the tankage and plumbing under the aft cabin berth. …Excellent product.
…Have been using BoatSafe® bilge heaters for nine years in my 35’ Radovich powerboat with twin Cat. 3208’s. … Our ambient temp gets down to around -5 deg.F … Have found the unit to be completely reliable and effective, and would heartily recommend BoatSafe® to any boater. … Kind Regards.
