 Why Buy An Autoterm Planar Heater?

Simply put this heater is on a par with the other top end made Diesel Air Heaters in terms of quality and efficiency (in fact a little better). Engine noise is also very quiet and comparable if not quieter than the others. There is also a silent fuel pump and a digital touchscreen ‘smartphone’ style controller available soon. Do not be fooled by cheap versions calling themselves Planar on Ebay which are from China. These are a very much inferior product in terms of reliability, build quality and noise. The real Autoterm Planar heaters are built in Russia by engineers who make them for the military and who have space technology experience. If there was ever a country to make sure that they build something robust and reliable to deal with the cold weather it must be there! They have a vested interest in making sure their product can deal with the most extreme of environments. They are tested to minus 50 degrees centigrade and will auto adjust for altitude up to 3600m. If you’re taking your van into conditions such as that, then hats off to you! Enjoy.
