How do you heat a school bus?
An RV propane furnace is by far the most convenient and powerful heat source of a school bus conversion. They can heat a skoolie up from 40° F to 70° F in less than 15-30 minutes depending on the size of your bus conversion, but you will feel the heat immediately no matter the size!
What does a heater pump do on a bus?
Engine pre- heaters operate as hot water furnaces utilizing the buses own diesel fuel and batteries to produce heat. Effective! The heaters water pump circulates engine coolant to transfer heat to the engine and heat exchangers. Convenient!
What is a bus heater?
In the past, school district bus yards had to plug in the engine block heater on school buses to warm it enough to start a cold diesel on a winter morning. The heaters circulates engine coolant to transfer heat to the engine and heat exchangers.
At what temperature do school buses not start?
The folks at Propst say five degrees is their threshold. Anything colder than that and plugging the buses in to heat them up won’t help. So, a whole week of those temperatures makes for a lot of extra work.
Can you insulate a bus?
Spray foam is the go-to insulation for school bus conversions. This is because of the many benefits that come with spray foam insulation a bus conversion needs. We used spray foam insulation in the walls and ceiling of our entire skoolie for the main reason above.
What is boost pump on school bus?
As with all school buses they come with a coolant boost pump that helps push the fluid through the entire system. The boost pumps are OEM parts that come from the factory on delivery. If the boost pump fails it acts as a blockage and coolant flow is restricted to the cab interior hoses.
How does a Webasto work?
Webasto Coolant Heaters circulate the machines coolant over a heat exchanger and then pumps it back through the engine and HVAC system. The result is a pre-heated engine and interior. In extreme climates, the heater can be used with additional accessories to warm the fuel, hydraulic fluid and batteries.
What is auxiliary heater?
Auxiliary heat is a heating system that works when the temperature inside a home or building drops lower than two or three degrees from what the temperature is set. Or when someone decides they are cold, and turns the thermostat up more than three degrees. Auxiliary heat is a component of heat pump systems.
What is the legal temperature to work in a school?

How cold does it have to be to freeze to death instantly?
At 82 F (28 C) you can lose consciousness. Below 70 F (21 C), you are said to have profound hypothermia and death can occur, Sawka said.
