The Espar Airtronic D2 Air Heater Kit

Ideal for travelling and camping in high altitudes, this 12V Espar airtronic D2 diesel heater is a powerful and economical heater suitable for a wide range of campervans, caravans, vans and trucks. It can operate at up to 1500meters / 4900 feet and offers 4 heat output levels, plus an air ventilation mode. Its flexible ducting makes it easy to heat all areas of your vehicle. Espar heaters are among the most popular in the market, and the easy availability of parts and repair shops means installation and maintenance are no hassle at all.

Key features of the Espar D2 Heater Kit 

  • The Espar D2 is a 12V diesel powered heater that operates as a forced air heater.
  • It offers a 2.2kW / 7500BTU heat output and has 4 different heating levels - low, medium, high, and power (boost) - so it is easy to achieve the heat level you want.
  • The Espar D2 diesel heater also has an air ventilation mode for circulating cold air through the ducting system, perfect for cooling your cabin or living area on warm nights.
  • It uses an integrated internal temperature sensor for temperature monitoring. An additional external temperature sensor is available and recommended, as this can be placed in locations like your sleeping area and provides higher accuracy and comfort level.
  • The Espar D2 Heater Kit is simple to install and maintain, and comes with all the necessary parts for installation (see full contents of the kit below).
  • It is also compact, which means it can be installed under the passenger seat, in small compartments within your van or trailer, or externally (external mounting requires additional accessories - our customer support team can help you find these).
  • The Espar D2 Heater Kit can operate in altitudes of up to 2,200 meters / 7200 feet, and can be used at even higher altitudes with an additional High Altitude Kit. 
  • The Espar D2 uses CAN, LIN and S+ system communication protocols which means it is compatible with early generation controllers. So you can use the controller from your previous models of heater with your new Espar D2.

User benefits of the Espar D2 Heater Kit 

The Espar D2 diesel heater is the most reliable and powerful 2kW heater on the market. Diesel powered with a 2.2kW / 7500BTU heat output, it is easy to install and even easier to maintain. What’s more, it is compact, meaning it can be installed under the passenger seat, small compartments or externally (external mounting accessories are required). And beyond convenience, there’s the accuracy of temperature control that you associate with Espar diesel heaters. And for extra accuracy, you can purchase an external temperature unit for your Espar D2 heater that can override the internally mounted temperature sensor to provide you the highest level of temperature control. There are 4 heating levels – low, medium, high, power, and an air ventilation mode to help you cool down your vehicle or living space. The unit also comes with enhanced on screen diagnostics, making it easier for you to catch any issues as they appear. 

What really sets the Espar D2 Heater kit apart from other economical heaters is its ability to be used at high altitudes. Espar’s unique altitude adjustment feature means that it can work at 2200 meters, around 700 meters higher than its competitors, and if you want to use your Espar D2 even higher than that, you can purchase the special High Altitude kit.  And if you are the kind of person who likes to have the ability to finetune your heater kit, you’ll find that the Espar D2 Heater is customisable. As it uses LIN, CAN and S+ technologies, it gives you greater freedom for custom control builds.

    Easy to instal

    Posted by Marcelo on 19th Nov 2019

    I installed this air heater in my 2017 Sprinter Van, I found all the parts I needed in the kit. It was easy and it is working fine.

    Great but needs extra parts and $$s to be fully usable.

    Posted by Jeremy Meigs on 12th Aug 2019

    First, HEATSO customer support was excellent and the product is amazing once you get it set up and properly wired/working.

    Issues I had are:

    * You need the High Altitude kit if you ever go near the mountains... which is where you usually need the heater! + ~$400 if not on sale...

    * The temperature sensor that comes with the Remote + unit is not usable as a thermostat. It just lets you know the temp. but won't shut off the heater at the desired temp. + ~$50...

    * The Molex Micro-J connectors are a pain to use, small and not initially crimped (which technically needs a tool to properly crimp and another tool to remove if you make a mistake putting them in the housings).

    great, reliable heater. good customer service

    Posted by kilohotel on 2nd Oct 2018

    You will receive A LOT of extra parts. Don't be alarmed. Install and wiring is actually pretty simple if you keep in mind that not all parts and wires will be used. The only thing I find frustrating is that there is no reducer hose barb to make the fuel line installation in a newer Sprinter easy. I was unable to find the part locally and had to order online. the only part you should need for a newer sprinter install(one with the fuel tank already tapped) is a 1/4" to 3/16" hose barb to transition from the sprinter fuel line to the Espar fuel line.

    D2 Heater kit

    Posted by Scott H on 5th Sep 2018

    I installed a D2 heater in my 2017 Mercedes Sprinter. I chose to install the heater on the driver's side floor, just in front of the rear wheel well. I think this location is much preferred over the passenger seat installation location. The diesel tap from the tank is on the drivers side and it makes in convenient. It is also preferred to be able to have the exhaust on the driver side away from the main cargo door. I was able to install on my own, but I found it a bit challenging. Limited directions are provided and the wiring diagram is a bit intimidating at first. Improved directions would be helpful. I have used the heater for nearly a year and so far so good.

    So Happy!

    Posted by Aaron on 20th Nov 2017

    What an amazing heater! Installed in a 170" MB Sprinter and it easily heats the van. Skip the mounting bracket-- I had to cut it down as it is too large to use under the passenger seat. Just use scrap metal as your mounting bracket. Heatso service is 1st class and I received my D2 in Colorado in under two days. Your eyes will glaze over at the wiring diagram the first time you look at it, but after a few YouTube videos, it's actually pretty easy.

    perfect for crane cab on Manitowoc M250

    Posted by Frank on 28th Oct 2015

    Very nice unit bought the tank also. Used in a crane cab and its plenty big enough actually it will run you out of it if you leave it on high for long. Easy install could use a better wiring schematic but still no problem. Very satisfied
