The Olympian Wave 8 Catalytic Safety Heater is an ideal primary or secondary heating source. Use it inside your RV as a portable unit or as a portable heater outdoors; it can also be permanently mounted. Just make sure to use it only in vented areas. For permanent mounting, this Camco Catalytic Heater can be hung vertically or horizontally on a wall, or it can be recessed vertically or horizontally. The Wave 8 catalytic heater operates on low-pressure LP gas. The adjustable 4200-8000 BTUs are designed to heat an area of up to 290 square feet. The built-in, self-generating piezo starter can last for around 20,000 starts for consistent long-term use. The integral safety shut-off valve helps stop non-ignition fuel discharge. The Wave 8 conveniently has no flame, flue, or chimney for easy operation. No fan or blower noise means it silently operates. The Olympian catalytic heating element features a high porosity spongy texture which allows for perfect transport of the oxygen needed for combustion. The catalytic heating element is evenly impregnated with platinum, guaranteeing optimal oxidation of gas and elimination of the mix of dangerous gas emissions. Catalytic heating is over 96% efficient, resulting in efficient, low-cost heat, while flame-type heaters waste up to 45% of all heat produced. Whether it's on the campsite or in the RV, stay warm, cozy, and comfortable wherever you go with this Camco Catalytic Heater!
**The heated area depends greatly on the insulation R-factor and outside temperature. All “heated area” specifications were based on an outside temperature of 35°F and R17 interior insulation. If camping in cooler temperatures, or if RV is not well insulated, a larger heater should be installed. State and local codes vary and may regulate the installation of this heater in recreational vehicles.
