Webasto, Espar and Eberspacher altitude ready heaters are designed to work effectively in your Motorhome or RV at high altitudes where a standard vehicle heater will not compensate for lower oxygen levels.
High altitude vehicle heaters automatically adjust the air to fuel ratio to ensure you stay warm inside your vehicle, even at altitudes up to 3000 metres (9800 feet) above sea level. If you have a standard heater in your vehicle, without a HAK (high altitude kit), at altitudes above 1800 metres you will typically experience poor combustion (smoke), carbon build-up and the heater failing to ignite.
If you are travelling to high altitudes and want to be sure your vehicle heater is going to work when you need it, the kits below will suit your needs. If you have any questions please feel free to contact us.
Whether you regularly travel at high altitudes or at sea-level it is worthwhile to be ready for that unexpected journey into or over the mountains. With a high altitude ready vehicle heater you can be assured that you will be warm no matter where you are traveling.
If you already own a vehicle heater it may be possible to adapt it to cope with high altitude operation. This will depend on the brand and model of your heater. For example, if you own an Eberspacher heater there is a high altitude adapter kit available. Please check that your heater is compatible before purchasing.
If you own a Webasto heater you can in many cases upgrade to high altitude, but this will involve purchasing individual components and will depend on your heater model. We recommend contacting us for advice before proceeding.
