I could not have got a better heater than your Aerotherm heater. I live in Hamilton Montana and have an unheated hangar. I leave it on all winter and everytime I go out to fly I don't have to pre-heat because its already nice and warm. We had 10 below temperatures here in December and the airplane stayed completely warm. It works great on my Citabria and I can take it to my fly in ranch in the Selway Wilderness of Idaho and run it off the generator back there.
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.
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!
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'm very happy with my Aerotherm Ryan, easy to use and silent. Hook it up, do my walk around and prep and in half an hour, 45 minutes it starts like a Summer day. Preparation and proper procedures are so important with a Radial Engine. Living in Canada with colder winters I feel confident I'm doing one of the best things I can do for my ship."
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for providing such an easy to use product that offers many advantages over previous preheating devices. I also, want to thank you for your prompt service when I had a problem with the first heater. Everybody looks good when things go right, but the true test is how they handle problems, in that area you excelled, when I contacted you with a problem, you quickly sent a replacement unit and return for the failed unit. I believe in putting my money where my mouth is that’s why I ordered the second unit from you to use on my other airplane.
