AT has found the ideal solution to heating your tent, trailer or AT FlipPac. A highly efficient Propane Forced Air Heater that's the size of a shoe box.
STANDARD FURNACE PACKAGE
The standard furnace package is designed for an installation in an RV, van, AT FlipPac, or in the bed of a truck under a camper shell. The Installation must be in a weatherproof environment.
The kit is comprehensive for most installations, all you would need some extra plumbing fixtures for the propane hook up, a two stage regulator, and a 12 volt supply to get the system up and running. The air intake and exhaust, for the combustion chamber, needs to be routed to the exterior of the vehicle. The work is within the reach of the DIY enthusiast, if you'd prefer have one of our technicians take care of it for you.
AT "HOT BOX" PORTABLE HEATER
The AT Portable Heater is a self contained unit housed in a custom made aluminum box. The heater can be used to heat ground tents, roof tents, RV's, vans, or truck beds. To get the unit running all it needs is a 12 volt source, propane, and a good air flow.
The portable unit comes with 5 feet of UV stable, "harsh environment" flex ducting to direct hot air from the furnace into your tent. The intake air can either be drawn into the furnace from the outside, or add another section of flex duct and drawn the return air from the tent for more efficient heating.
The fresh air intake and the exhaust, for the combustion chamber, are located on opposite ends of the box to avoid cross contamination.
Propane is attached to the unit via a fast disconnect fitting with a built in one way valve.
The 12 volt supply for the furnace is hooked up via a marine grade 12 volt socket. The electrical wire, provided, has two marine grade plugs on either end, one to connect to the 12 volt supply and the other to the furnace.
The furnace will work down to a voltage of 10 volts.
The thermostat runs from the furnace to the tent, allowing remote control over the furnace from inside the tent.
The 12 volt cable, propane hose, two stage regulator, the thermostat and wire all fit inside the box for transportation.
It's a compact light weight solution to cold weather camping, or just taking the chill off the air before you go to bed or get up in the morning. Cold in the middle of the night? Just turn the dial up on the thermostat.
The Portable Heater is designed to used outside. As the outer box has access holes it's best to locate the heater in an area out of the direct path of rain, sleet, and snow.

EFFICIENCY AND OUTPUT
The Heatsource furnaces come in two sizes the smaller HS2000 rated at 6483 BTU and the larger HS2800 rated at 9554 BTU output.
The smaller unit runs at 91% efficiency, draws 1.4 amps during fan use, and puts out 60 cubic feet of air a minute.
The larger unit runs at 93% efficiency, draws 1.9 amps during fan use, and puts out 85 cubic feet a minute of air.
Both the HS2000 and HS2800 are supplied as standard with a solid state electronic thermostat which automatically switches the unit on and off to maintain the desired temperature.
Electrical current consumption is minimal during ignition, so cycling the Heatsource on and off does not have the effect of additional battery drain.
The Heatsource works by heating up the large surface area of the heat-exchanger, so no mixing of combustion gases and heated air takes place. The units are totally room sealed and exhaust all products of combustion externally.
Heatsource units are designed to be quiet during operation without compromising air and heat output. Noise is kept to a minimum by using high quality balanced fans and smooth enclosed motors with ball race bearings, .
The intelligent electronics are continuously monitoring the operation of the heater to make sure everything is operating correctly and safely.
Monitoring of the flame
Gas solenoid valve and voltage.
Should any of these stray outside of the predetermined levels, the heater will be switched off and the red light on the thermostat will indicate a fault.
Consumption of propane running continuously:
HS2000 at 6483 BTU, 3.2 hours on 1 lb. of propane.
HS2800 at 9554 BTU, 2.0 hours on 1 lb. of propane.
