Webasto fuel fired air heaters are available to match either 12vdc or 24vdc electrical systems with models for Gasoline or Diesel fuel as an energy source. These heaters are highly efficient and reliable devices that can be fit to nearly any type of vehicle in myriad applications.
Their simple design contributes to their reliability and efficiency but also poses some limitations to their operating envelope. The heater has its own electrical and fuel system which will be interconnected to the vehicle systems and therefore the system voltage and fuel type must match between vehicle and heater system.
With their broad acceptance into many vehicle markets and relative ease of installation and operation, many projects have involved Webasto heater upgrades in both Commercial and Consumer vehicle applications. Recreational vehicles specifically geared to the Vanlife movement regularly incorporate a Webasto air heater as a Van Builder provided option or a DIY upgrade due to their small size, high electrical efficiency, low fuel consumption and added attraction of operating multiple appliances from a single on-board fuel source.
