I was told by Scamp
sales folks that their furnaces are quieter these days than years ago. Has the industry evolved to be more sensitive to noise? Or has Scamp
moved to a quieter model? My last Scamp
was a 1991 and noisy.
Seems furnaces are too big (btu output) for little trailers and way too noisy. Back in 1974 I had a small, simple, gravity furnace
that cost $75.00 and was dead silent, worked without electricity, maintained an even temperature in my small camper and had a sealed externally vented combustion chamber. Don't remember the brand but it would be perfect in a small trailer today.
I expect technology to evolve in a good way. My iphone makes my Commodore 64 feel like a handful of counting stones. Seems furnaces have regressed. The only modern innovation I like is the flame-out gas cutoff valve. Wouldn't be surprised if my old furnace
had that too.
Best Autumn to you all, john the toymaker
