We upgraded our battery system from AGM to lithium so we would be able to stay out boondocking longer. We have our 4 dogs and a cat which bring a lot of dander, dust, odors, etc. This prompted us to look for ways to heat, cool, filter and clean our air.
Our first step was to remove the “lamp table” from behind the passenger seat. This left a hole where it was attached, which was just the right size to fit our electric fireplace. It has 2 heat settings for higher and lower amp usage, an LCD screen on the front that looks like real fire, and a remote control. I framed it in with crown molding we bought from Home Depot.
Step 2 was initially not a necessity, but turns out, one of the best investments for our heating, cooling, and air quality. This is our Dyson fan. This thing puts out some incredible heat and cools the air like crazy in cool mode. It has its own thermostat for temperature control. Has an LCD screen to show which pollutants and how much of each are in the air. Showing your air quality while filtering pollen, carbon monoxide, large and small particulates, etc. We love it.
Number 3 on our list is an ozone generator. We picked this little guy up from amazon. We got this one because it has ceramic plates, several settings for fan strength and ozone production, and we like the look. The ozone purifies the air like crazy and destroys odors from cooking, pets, bathroom, etc. You all know the smells! 😂
Fourth on the list is our most recent purchase. Our Mr Heater Portable Buddy. This little propane powered heater works great! It has 2 heat settings, low and high. We bought several 1lb propane bottles from WalMart. The Buddy has a screw on nozzle for the propane that swivels out for easy attaching and swings back down when in place. Each 1lb bottle of propane lasts for about 3 hours on high or 6 hours on low, give or take. The Buddy also has a tip over cut off feature so you won’t have to worry about it catching your place on fire if it gets knocked over.
Our final item, which many of us, whether in a house, rv, 5th wheel, van, etc., is our air filters. We use the purple Filtrete filters. They’re more expensive, but have the highest filtration ability of the others.
