After researching many other options, I decided the Aerotherm was best for my setup in an unheated hanger. No installation. No change to W&B. Easy to stow for transport or warm weather. My RCS unit is on speed dial and my heater is presently hooked up to my SR-22 awaiting my call.
After doing a lot of research on aircraft engine heaters, I came to the conclusion that the AeroTherm heater was my best choice and the only unit that met all of my purchase criteria: effective, lightweight, portable and inexpensive. I had decided that I wanted an electric heater and, since I fly a variety of aircraft, I needed a unit that was not permanently installed. I like the fact that the AeroTherm re-circulates heated air throughout the engine compartment, ensuring that the entire engine is heated evenly, including the oil. And with three different temperature settings and a built in thermostat, I can tailor the heater output to my specific needs on any given day.
As owner of a small SEP aircraft based in Switzerland, I recently bought an Alien X Turbo system. Friendly talks and rapid support from the manufacturer. Once bought, the device was sent rapidly and securely to Europe.
No need for any electrical plug adapter; the Alien stands "ready to use". Very simple and quick installation of the Alien on the aircraft (tutorial videos are of great help). It simply works! Your engine won’t ever keep cold again!
I got my heater on the 182 and it is -10 celcius outside and the plane is very cosy. What a fantastic product, most impressed.
The Aerotherm engine heater is exactly what I needed for my Columbia 400. I turn the unit on and it heats all my cylinder heads to about 100F and the oil is kept at a nice 85F. It is easily installed when needed and its simplicity makes it a great addition on to my aircraft.
