Auxiliary Heaters for Trucks

Air Heaters

Ultra-Quiet Air Heater with Advanced Driver Control Panel

Proheat Air is the new standard for heavy-duty truck air heaters, quietly delivering constant and reliable heat in cold weather environments. Available in 2 and 4 kW models, its high-efficiency design reduces overall vehicle emissions and engine wear by eliminating the need to idle the engine to heat the sleeper cab. Proheat Air saves fuel costs for fleets and operators while helping drivers comply with local idling restrictions. A digital remote panel provides comprehensive and precise control of Proheat Air from anywhere inside the truck cab.

Precision Heater Control

The Proheat Air truck kit includes a digital Driver Control Panel (DCP) that makes set-up and operation of the heater quick and easy. The DCP features a large, backlit LCD screen that displays at-a-glance heater status, temperature, time, and power level.

A surface-mount design means it can be installed inside the cab wherever it’s most convenient. An intuitive five button design ensures drivers can easily program and control the heater to suit their needs.

Cut Operating Costs & Emissions

By installing Proheat Air, fleets and operators can save thousands of dollars each year by eliminating the need to idle the vehicle’s engine as a source of heat for driver comfort. Engine idling puts unnecessary hours on the engine, increasing engine wear and overall vehicle emissions. Prohibiting idling is also quickly becoming the focus of local and federal law makers, as well as a target for local law enforcement.

Proheat Air uses a fraction of the fuel a truck engine uses to idle while still generating a quiet, constant flow of heat that drivers can adjust as desired.

How many hours do your trucks idle for cab comfort heating in a typical year? Since Proheat Air burns 95% less fuel than a truck engine, trucks that idle unnecessarily for hundreds of hours will pay for a Proheat Air in a single winter season.

X45

Powerful & Rugged Auxiliary Coolant Heater for Easy Cold Weather Starts

Proheat X45 is a powerful, diesel-powered engine pre-heating solution for quick and reliable cold weather starting. An integrated pump circulates heated coolant to warm the engine block, making starting easier and reducing start-up engine wear. Proheat X45 features an onboard control panel that displays heater status, while an optional digital timer for the cab adds convenient timer-based starting of the heater. Proheat X45 can also direct heat to the truck cab for driver comfort while reducing fuel costs and emissions from unnecessary engine idling. With more than 15 years in the field, its rugged and field serviceable design has proven reliable in even the most extreme temperatures.

Dual-Purpose Auxiliary Heater

Proheat X45 is powerful enough to supply heat for both engine and driver needs. Engine pre-heating helps eliminate problems with cold-weather starts, allowing drivers to depart faster. With the addition of an optional heat exchanger, Proheat X45 can heat the sleeper cab for added driver comfort. And its low amperage design is a small draw on the starting battery, ensuring it is not excessively drawn down when the heater is used.

Cut Operating Costs

By installing Proheat X45, fleets and operators can save thousands of dollars each year by eliminating the need to idle the truck’s engine to prevent engine freezing and to provide heat for driver comfort. Engine idling puts unnecessary hours on the engine, increasing engine wear and overall vehicle emissions. Proheat X45 uses substantially less fuel than an idling truck engine while still keeping both the engine and driver warm.

How many hours do your trucks idle for cab comfort and engine pre-heating in a typical year? Since Proheat X45 burns 90% less fuel than a truck engine, trucks that idle unnecessarily for hundreds of hours will typically pay for a Proheat X45 in about a year. Compare your truck heating needs to the sample fuel and cost savings calculations in Table below.

1 Fuel Used per Hour Idling Truck Engine 1.0 gallons 3.8 litres
2 Fuel Used per Hour by Proheat X45 0.1 gallons 0.4 litres
