Chinese diesel heaters

Has anyone installed one of these:

They are basically a copy of the Webasto unit though with some better tech added. Actually read on one forum that the webasto spares will fit into these.

Here's one of the videos I looked at in reference to installing one of these :

I've been thinking about these ever since my last electric bill on the boat. My bill was almost 70.00 and it's not even full winter yet. Harbor master said it's not unusual for boats in the 40 ft range live aboard to pay 100.00 electric bills mostly for heating.

Man I wish I would have know that was an option. A few years ago I paid $4k to have my Espar cabin heater replaced. They wouldn't even sell me the heater and let me replace it due to "liability".
