Removing the entire dash assembly is the best way. It's a lot of work but worth the trouble.
Answer . The question is better defined as "What the most energy efficient portable heater?" Because one would assume that you will want to be able to take the heater with you when or if you move.
Tankless. A tankless heater heats the water as you use it. It doesn't store hot water and keep it hot day and night whether any is used or not. The water is heated almost instantaneously, and the heater will keep the hot water flowing as long as the water is turned on.
The most efficient SUV is the mercury Seattle at 56 MPG :) ---- Volkswagen makes an L3 Lupo that advertises 78 MPG. Hydrogen-powered cars such as the Honda FCX Clarity and the H2 Mazda Rx8 dont even use petrol.
just a guess = human powered aircraft like the gossamer condor or the one that flew around the world nonstop cant remember the name
I have found that for my Scion Tc the most efficient speed is 57 - 61 mpg. If I speed up slowly, slow down by coasting, and set my cruise control on while driving on the highway I can get well over the estimated 30 mpg.. Like most things fuel efficiency depends on the vehicle. But somewhere between… 55 and 65 should be right. Test it out for yourself during your daily commute and see. There are also some really good articles written about something called Hypermiling. I do not consider myself one of them but I do use a few of there techniques (the ones mentioned above) in order to be more cost and fuel efficient. (MORE)
According to the Rheem website, tall and short tanks have identical energy factors. So replace with the best fit!
any of the newer windows that are double-pane filled with argon are very efficient. there are many styles and prices
There are 2 major manufacturarers in Japan . 1. Corona Corporation (www.corona.co.jp) . 2. Toyostove (www.zibro.com) . Both have excellent laser kerosine heaters , some people prefer Toyostove other prefer Corona.
They say that E-heaters are a good value--convection heaters that mount to the wall.. They're actually called ECONO HEAT. I've heard good things about them but haven't tried one myself. I understand that proper mounting (right height, inside wall) makes a difference.. They have a website-- http://…eheat.com/ (MORE)
A BTU IS A BTU. (3413 BTU'S PER 1000 WATTS). ELECTRIC RESISTANCE HEAT IS 100% EFICIENT ( SPEAKING OF GETTING EVERY BTU YOU ARE PAYING FOR). A $30.00 MILK HOUSE HEATER WILL GIVE YOU THE SAME AMOUNT OF HEAT ( BTU'S) AS A $700.00 FANCY, QUIET ONE.. LC
The cost efficiency of a heater depends on a number of factors.First, what do you want to heat and where do you want to heat it? If you want to heat a one person working in a large warehouse oroffice it is probably most cost efficient to use a radiant heateror infrared heater that can be directed at… the person. such aheater avoids heating the air in the whole room which could beexpensive if the room is very large. Second, what is the relativecost of fuel where you live? Paraffin and diesel heaters can be very efficient in burning allthe fuel they use so you get the most out of them but is it cheapas electricity? You need to look at the cost per Kilowatt houroutput by each unit. The most efficient electric heaters areprobably those that use a heat pump as you can get as much as 3times as much heat out of the unit as you put in as it extractsheat from its surroundings (even cold air outside).

Efficient, yes. But a poor choice for a heater. It's just a marketing gimmick. Every electric heater is nearly 100 percent efficient. Efficiency is a term not understood by many. Energy efficiency - useful work per quantity of energy. In other words, What is the job of an electric heater? To m…ake heat. How much of the electricity fed to the heater is turned into heat? All of it. That makes it 100 percent efficient. In contrast an incandescent light bulb is only about 5 percent efficient, only 5% of the electricity fed to it is converted to light the other 95% is converted to heat. (MORE)

PLATO Waianae High School (: Answer: Less NonRenewable Natural Gas Will Be Used To Produce Heat .
Unbelievably efficient. I have been using them since 1995. I have purchased more than 20. They are 99.9 percent efficient, which is why they don't need a vent. A 15,000 BTU Unit (that has 3 plates) uses less than a dollar an hour worth of propane and probably something on the the order of 70 cents …worth of natural gas per hour. You do have to select which gas source you intend to use before purchase. But you don't normally run the heater at full output. Once a room is heated you set the heater on low and then it uses just pennies per hour worth of fuel. I have owned and installed about 15 in the mobile homes and site built homes that I previously rented to tenants and I've purchased a number of portable units for camping.

Amps and Watts measure different things. An Amp is a measure of electrical current and a Watt is a measure of Power. Which ever device draws the higher amperage will be the one that uses more electricity! Hence the 240 watt heater draw less amps even though it uses more watts: Volts Watts/Elec…tical Current Amps/Power example heater 240 volt draws 2000/1000 watts - but uses 8.3/4.2 amps example heater 120 volt draws 1500/750 watts - but uses 12.5/6.3 amps (MORE)
Neither, both heaters of the same size will use the same wattage which is how your electric bill is calculated. Added; Theoretical power consumption wise, 110 or 220 are the same. From the electric meters point of view, it takes the highest load of the two legs (110 neutral 110) and charges the g…reater load as your billable energy. A 110 heater is on only one leg. If out of balance with other appliances you theoretically could be paying twice as much as the heater is actually using. A 220 pulls equally from both legs, keeping the load in balance. Make sense? Above is correct, however, a 208 3 phase system is more efficient than either 220 or 110. The problem is they are generally not available in sizes appropriate for homes, nor are homes generally wired for polyphase power. (MORE)

No. Nothing is 100 percent efficient. In any situation some energy will be given off in a form that is useless to us.
Debris in the cabin air inlet. A mouse nest. Not sure if the 97 used a cable or servo motor to position the various doors. The cable could have come of or a servo motor could have failed.
yes because it's cooler in the garage than in your house. Plus there are no confusing powerlines.
No, but close to it. In regards to just the heating of the water, Tank-type, and tank-less, electric water heaters are about 99% efficient* because the heating elements are immersed in water, and little energy is wasted between heat source and water. However, all tank-type water heaters loose …heat from their reservoirs (tanks). This heat loss lowers the overall efficiency. Most electric heaters fall between 90-95% total. This is the number that is usually reported by the manufacturers. * Efficiency is not the same as cost savings. For example electric heaters have higher efficiency, but cost more to operate than same-size gas water heater. Also tankless gas heaters, gas water heaters with blowers, and gas heaters with high recovery may claim higher efficiency, but they consume more fuel per hour of operation. Additional Information: Efficiency of heating elements does not consider inefficiencies in production, transmission, refining, and delivery of electricity. Estimates say coal-fired power plants waste half the energy of coal during electric generation. However hydroelectric power plants are very efficient. Tank-type gas water heaters are 69% efficient, since hot combustion gas escapes out the flue after hydrogen content of fuel is burned. This number does not consider inefficiencies during production, transmission, refining, and delivery of gas. Tank-less gas water heaters are 79% efficient, but tank-less burn more gas per gallon of hot water than tank-type heaters. Hot combustion gasses are released out the flue and are not actively recycled without slowing combustion which turns off unit. Newer type tank-less with blower recycles heat into a tank operate at 96% efficiency, and are made for oversize consumption of both energy and hot water. High efficiency tank-type gas heaters operate at 96% efficiency by using blowers to circulate hot combustion gas through coiled tube located inside tank. Same amount of combustion gas is released since only heat is recycled. The use of electric blower affects overall cost. Environmental efficiency: Electric water heater does not release CO2 at each home, instead CO2 is localized at power plant. Gas water heaters release CO2 at each home which factor in environmental efficiency. Efficiency of all gas water heaters falls and cannot be fully restored if untreated hard water deposits sediment over heat transfer surface. Generally, gas heaters exposed to hard water require softener which affects overall efficiency. Efficiency of tank-type electric water heater remains at 99% until sediment reaches element, causing element to burn out. Full 99% efficiency is restored by cleaning out tank and replacing element. Generally, tank-type electric heater does not require water softener. Downsizing water heater, reducing consumption, selecting water heater with fewer parts, reading the manual, and draining tank each 6 months to avoid sediment are key to saving energy. (MORE)
Arrays are the most efficient data structure. Memory is allocatedto the entire array as a single operation and the total memoryconsumed is equal to the product of the element size and the numberof elements (all elements being of equal size, in bytes). Thismeans that any element in the array can be a…ccessed using simplepointer arithmetic from the start of the array, with the firstelement at offset 0. All high level languages hide the pointerarithmetic behind an array suffix operator, such that element will be found 5 * sizeof (element) bytes from the start address ofthe array (the address where element  resides).Multi-dimensional arrays are implemented as an array of arrays,such that a two-dimensional array is a one-dimensional array whereevery element is itself a one-dimensional array. These can bethought of as being a table of rows and columns where the firstdimension access a one-dimensional row array, and the seconddimension accesses the column within that row. A three-dimensionalarray can then be thought of as being an array of tables or acuboid (a stack of tables). A four-dimensional array can thereforebe thought of as being an array of cuboids, a table of tables, or acuboid of arrays. By imagining arrays in this manner it becomesmuch simpler to imagine arrays with more than 3 dimensions. By contrast, a list or a tree structure is less efficient becauseevery element requires at least one additional field to maintainthe link from that element to another element, thus defining thestructure. You also need to maintain an additional field to referto the first element in the structure. If you have a structure thatcan dramatically vary in size, lists may be more efficient becausethere is no need to reallocate the entire structure; you simplyallocate and deallocate memory for individual elements and updatethe links between elements to maintain the structure. However, youlose constant-time random access because you have to traverse thelinks in the structure to locate an individual element and theadditional level of indirection means it will be slower than anarray. However, reallocating an array often means copying the arrayto new memory. One way to minimise reallocations is to reserve morememory than you actually need, thus allowing you to add newelements more quickly at the cost of some memory. You only need toreallocate when you run out of reserve. You can also minimise thecost of reallocation by storing pointers rather than objects inyour array. This adds an extra level of indirection, but speeds upthe reallocation process by only copying pointers rather thanobjects being pointed. (MORE)
"Solar cells are the most efficient when they are facing the sun at a certain angle of 90 degrees."
Ceramic heaters are considered more efficient than electric conventional heaters, as they heat faster, are more stable when achieving the desired temperature, safer and if used in the lower power settings consume less energy
Because all the electrical energy supplied to the heater is emittedas heat. There is no other way for the energy to escape.

Due to the elements and relative harsh exposure, concrete is the most common material to use for a garage floor. It is very durable and easier to clean than many of the alternatives.
Most garage floors are made of cement. They are usually formed at the same time the homes foundation is formed. In rural areas, it is not uncommon for the floor of an unattached garage to be dirt.
I have no experience in this, however A. O Smith claims that there brand of gas water heaters are the most efficient. They also offer a hybrid water heater.
There are many different retirement calculators you can use however only a few are top rated. The two main companies are USAA, and Ameriprise these are both efficient and reputable.
All the power absorbed by the heating element and the connectingwire is converted into heat, leading to the 100% efficiency figure.
I hope to save people a lot of money by answering this. $10.00 electric heater or $500.00 electric heater THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE IN EFFICIENCY.

"According to consumer voting, the best premium application server is IBM WebSphere. The most efficient open source application server is Apache Geronimo."
Electric heat is always 99% efficient. The only exception to this relates to 110 volt vs 220 volt, but this is based on myth.
Those with a larger surface area and less volume. The less volume the faster and more efficient transport is which allows the cell to prosess and respond to its environmental changes repidly and reach homeostasis.
Question is not clear! efficient compared to what? anyways, 240 Volts generaly have the same effectincy as 120 Volts; however, 240V heat much faster due to the higher voltage and most likely amps avialable on the circuit feeding the heater.
well I think you will get heated up so if your in doors try opening the doors so you won't burn up
A solar water heater relies on sunlight to heat the water. On acloudy day the amount of sunshine is reduced, so the water probablywill not be as hot. Solar PV panels have the same problem. Oncloudy or rainy days the amount of electricity generate is muchless.
A garage heater is used to warm up garages (such as mechanic shops) and workshops during the winter months. They come in many different shapes and sizes. some can be hung from the ceiling, while others can be installed like an AC unit.
Natural gas is more thin than air, which means it is not as flammable and will more likely go up in the atmosphere. Although it is non-toxic, one should still make way for ventilation avoiding suffocation. Natural gas is clean and efficient. It is surely one of the safer options to bare in mind.
An electric garage heater can be purchased from all good electrical stores. Stores such as Tesco, Currys and webpages such as Amazon or Ebay sell this item.
The most energy efficient radiator heater is the oil filled one. A better option would be an electrical one because those are almost 100% energy efficient.
There are many different brands of portable heaters that can be used in a garage workshop. Some popular and reliable brands include Convair and Sylvain.
Space heaters made to save energy can be found manufactured by Honeywell, ThermoSoft and TurboAir. Cadet and General Electric also have some highly energy efficient models of both space heaters and in-wall units available.
Energy efficient space heaters can be found and purchased at Amazon, eBay, Walmart, Overstock, Kmart, Kohl's, and Meijer. An energy efficient space heater can be helpful in lowering heating costs in the winter.
The main feature of an efficient electric heater is, that is used up to 30% less engery than a conventional electric heater. This reduces the cost of the heater.
One can use an energy efficient heater to save on gas and electric bills, one can also wear warm clothing like sweaters and socks to help minimise the need for heating.
Energy efficient electric heaters work by conserving energy and not wasting energy. The point of energy saving heating is to save money and lower carbon emissions.
