The electric heat modules are available in 2.5 or 4.0 kW. The modules use multiple heater coils with two-stage heating control to provide precise temperature control and optimized energy efficiency. The Qt electronic control automatically throttles back heat and power consumption as the inside air approaches the setpoint temperature.
The compact self-contained heating unit can be mounted under a bunk or seat. Warm air can be discharged directly into the space or ducted to one or more grills.
“We have developed these new heat modules in response to requests from trucking fleets operating in very cold regions, such as northern Canada and Alaska, where sub-zero temperatures are common,” said Lou Siegel, spokesman for Dometic’s U.S. trucking business unit. “We have drawn on our more than 50 years of experience in HVAC technology to bring to market a flexible and reliable system for these extreme low-temperature conditions.”
Dometic will showcase its full range of air conditioning solutions, refrigerators, freezers, and other products for the truck market in Booth 20075 at the Mid-America Trucking Show.
