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.
The Deuce works better than I ever imagined! I threw a couple of moving blankets on top, positioned the hoses into the cowls, careful not to obstruct the oil cooler, and left it plugged in to cycle on and off as needed. After a couple of days I noticed the heater only comes on maybe once every 5 minutes, and stays on no more than a minute at a time, maybe less. The engine is toasty warm. Thanks for such a great product.
Just wanted to send you a quick note about your Aerotherm Deuce. I purchased it in the fall of 2011 from you guys and have had it plugged in between the months of October and May ever since and it's fantastic. Oil temp shows 70 degrees even at -25 Celsius. Great product!
I should let you know that I purchased an Aerotherm heater almost 10 years ago and have used it every winter since and it has worked flawlessly, until today, but after 10 years of continuous winter operation, what more can you expect. I live in Northwest Wyoming where the temperatures are often below zero for several days at a time during the winter. I fly 150+ hours a year, so it is important to me to keep my airplane in top shape. I have never had to worry about starting my plane in less than desirable conditions. Your heater always kept my engine nice and warm, even in below zero temps.
Anyway, just wanted to let you know that I never even considered another product after the great experience I have had with Aerotherm.
The staff couldn't have been any nicer at Aerotherm. I had a trip ’Up North’ coming up and needed the heater ASAP for my new SR22. They were able to arrange second day air for a reasonable price and it arrived in time for my trip the next day!
