Multitude of modes to adjust stationary heating
We have made a Autoterm Air 2D test. In the digital control we can configure the stationary heating by power, by temperature, only to ventilate the interior of the van or in its star mode: with thermostat. All modes are set with a timer to control the operation and not drain, by mistake, the energy of our battery.
Star mode is the thermostat mode For a simple reason, and that is that it works exactly the same as home heating. We only have to configure at what temperature we want the interior of our camper van to be kept, a maximum time during which the stationary heating will be in operation, and in a few minutes we will be exactly as we want.
The time it takes to heat up the interior of the van is minimal, the noise produced by the heater, fuel pump and fan itself is quite contained and the hot air flow it is abundant. In short, it is a heating with a quality / price ratio reference in the market.
