Caravan internal doors when heating van

Recommended Posts

Hi

 

i have a static van with a combi boiler and radiators in each room fitted with trv’s  (Apart from bathroom one). When putting heating on is it best to have internal doors open or closed for efficiency 

 

cheers

If the TRVs are working correctly, the system is balanced properly and the outside doors are draught free, it should make no difference, unlike a house where, because warm air rises, the doors leading to the stairs should be kept shut.

I would have thought that if rooms had the trv's set differently,it would be better to keep the doors closed.

If the radiators are large enough in each room, the doors should be kept shut. It also depends on the room/hall thermostat (if there is one) not being in a room that gets hot from the sun or having a large radiator which might shut off the boiler before the other rooms are warmed up.
