Got my Aerotherm heater a couple weeks ago and just in time. The weather here in upstate New York went into the lower twenties. I set up the heater on my Skylane and left it turned on overnight. I went back the next day expecting that the motor would be running continuously, but to my pleasant surprise it was not. I reached inside the cowl and could just feel the warmth and of course she started right off with no trouble. I am very pleased.
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.
I have come to find my Aerotherm to be indispensable. I travel the Midwestern US and Canada every day for business in my SR22-GTS and I must have the reliability and efficiency of the Aerotherm. I can use it anywhere, use it on any plane I’m flying, and even help friends or coworkers get their planes safely started regardless of conditions. Try that with a bolt on heater!
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.
Thanks for shipping the AeroTherm Heater so promptly! It’s been keeping our C-172’s engine nice and warm between flights. My concerns about excessive engine wear during starts on cold days has vanished.
Keep up the good work!
