The Alde Hydronic Heating System

Learn how hydronic heating works and how the Alde heating system keeps you warm and comfortable in your RV.

The Alde Hydronic Heating System

No matter how far afield you’re traveling, comfort is one of the most important parts of any journey. For more than 50 years, we’ve been building, innovating, and pioneering hydronic heating systems for RVs, and in this article, we’ll explain how our heating system works.

The Alde Heating System is designed to provide maximum comfort throughout your motorhome, from the driver’s cab to the towel rails. With the Alde hydronic heating system fitted in your vehicle, you can travel in comfort in any season, all year round.

How does it work?

Our heating system is powered by a boiler called the Compact 3020. It uses a convection heating system to heat the entire vehicle in an efficient manner, from floor to ceiling.

What can the Alde heating system be used for?

The system is suitable for a range of applications, such as:

  • Travel trailers
  • Motorhomes
  • Teardrop trailers
  • RVs
  • Camper vans

Excellent efficiency

Powered by electricity and liquid petroleum gas (LPG), the Alde heating system is extremely efficient. The convection heating system delivers ultimate efficiency – the warm air rises and then travels back down once it reaches the ceiling, heading towards the floor where the convectors can heat it again, continuing the cycle. This is called self-convection.

Tested to the limit

We hold ourselves and our products to the highest standards. To make sure that our hydronic heating systems meet those standards, they are tested in temperatures as low as -35 Celsius (-31 Fahrenheit). You can be sure that you’ll be comfortable throughout your journey, even in the coldest climates.

Built to be adaptable

One of the main strengths of the heating system is its versatility. Each RV model is different and has different heating needs. We can adapt the heating system to the vehicle it is being installed on. By tailoring the system to suit the vehicle, we can ensure maximum efficiency and maximum comfort, whether it’s a teardrop trailer or a seven-person motorhome.

No noise

Very few vehicle heating systems find the balance between comfort, performance, and noise levels. Some heaters perform well but make a lot of noise in the process, which can distract and disturb. The Alde hydronic heating system not only delivers unmatched performance, but it’s near silent, so you’ll never hear it while it keeps you warm.

Customize your system

The Alde hydronic heating system is more than just a heater. Enhance your RVing experience with these accessories: 

Alde Flow: get continuous hot water from your Alde system with this add-on module. As long as there’s water in the tank, you can enjoy hot showers.

Alde AquaClear UV-C (coming soon) ensures that the freshwater in your tank is just that: fresh. Fitted between your fresh-water tank and your boiler or outlets, it uses UV LEDs to disinfect the water and a carbon filter to reduce bad taste and smell, so you can be sure the water you’re using is clean and safe. 

Underfloor heating and heated towel bars provide the kind of luxury you normally expect from a luxury bathroom in a home or hotel. Returning from a wet and windy walk to warm floors and heated towels is a beautiful bonus.
