    Hello to all,

    I'm looking for a new airheater using Diesel that must perform proportionnal type regulation in the range of 2 to 4kW, thus allowing heating power (Diesel consumption) to automatically vary from full power to minimun.

    Can you share your own experience for some sturdy devices with good aftersale services worldwide, please ?

    Fair winds and smooth seas to all.

    So, I'm thinking you want a 14,000 BTU diesel fueled heater with a thermostat.?

    Hello,

    I'm sorry.
    You're right, 4000 Watts makes 14000 BTU per hour or so.

    A single thermostat On/Off regulation doesn't provide the proportionnal regulation I'm looking for, on the US market: the heater starts at high power, then the fuel consumption must decrease as temperature rises, heater remaining at low power.

    Thank you.

    Patrick
