Espar / Eberspacher Airtronic B4L AM3 12v Air Heater With Installation Kit

4 KW / 13650 BTU - PETROL HEATER

The Espar B4L gasoline heater with installation kit 

This powerful 12V van heater offers versatility and optimized heating control, even in extreme conditions. It is suitable for use at high altitudes (up to 18000 feet / 5.5 kilometers) with no need for an additional high altitude kit. It can operate in temperatures as low as -46°C / -50°F. Installation has been made as simple as possible, while the B4L has been engineered to offer comfort and performance with noise levels minimized. Compatible with a wide range of vehicles, and especially well-suited to vans, this is one of the most popular petrol / gasoline heaters on the market. Please note this heater is not suitable for use in marine applications.

Key features of the Espar B4L gasoline heater

  • The Espar Airtronic AM3 B4L is the brand new petrol / gasoline heater on the market, offering 4kW / 13650BTU maximum heat output. This power, combined with the B2L’s advanced features and engineering, makes it one of the best 2kW petrol / gasoline heaters on the market. 

  • The Espar B4L is engineered to operate in extreme conditions and high altitudes. It can operate in temperatures as low as -46°C / - 50°F and at altitudes of up to 18K feet. This is possible thanks to its integrated altitude sensor, and unlike earlier models there is no additional wiring or installation required for high altitude operation.

  • Controlling the heater is simple because it has an integrated temperature sensor and EasyStart Pro controller will display the information from it. The Espar B4L’s stepless blower system enables optimized heating control and maximizes performance efficiency. 

  • The stepless blower system also ensures quieter performance compared to previous models, while the dampened fuel pump piston reduces clicking noise. The Espar B4L also sports a brushless fan which helps to further reduce noise.

  • The Espar B4L is highly versatile when it comes to installation. Its adaptable ducting system, which can go up to 15 meters / 49ft in length, features outlets of either 90mm or 75mm. Ducting outlets are closeable and can have different degree grilles and outlet types, plus the number of outlets can be varied based on the complexity of the ducting system. 

  • The Espar B4L is easier to install than previous models. It features plug and play  installation which requires fewer tools and no cable crimping, enabling DIY installation. 

  • The heater’s fuel system plugs directly into your vehicle’s fuel system or tank with a standpipe or via an auxiliary tap (if your vehicle manufacturer offers one). Installation of the fuel system has been simplified for this model, with the same line used for the whole installation. 

  • The Espar B4L AM3 is compatible with all 3 communication protocol technologies used by Espar - CAN, LIN and S+. This means you can use your earlier generation controller with the Espar B4L

  • Custom installation kits can be arranged based on requirements of your vehicle (get in touch with the Heatso team to discuss your specific needs).

  • The brushless fan ensures the Espar B4L has a long operating life, increasing service time from 3k hours (on previous models) up to 5k hours. And if there are any issues, the new controller communication system allows more accurate on-screen fault diagnostics.

  • Start up power consumption has been reduced compared to  previous AM2 models .  

User benefits of the Espar B4L gasoline heater kit

There are many reasons why the 12V gasoline heater is so popular as a van heater. Its powerful heat output ( 4kW / 13650 BTU max heat output) is a clear advantage, as is the ability to use it in extreme conditions, including at high altitudes and in low temperatures. This heater also offers good fuel efficiency, and is a cost-effective option especially for long-term usage.

Operating altitudes - approximately up to 5.500 meters / 18,000 ft.

If you are looking for a gasoline heater you can install yourself, the B2L is one of the best options. It’s compatible with various petrol / gasoline vehicles, and is especially popular with Ford Transit and RAM Promaster owners. With plug and play installation, a wide range of ducting options, and simplified fuel system installation, it is engineered to be easy to install.

You also have plenty of options as to where you install the fuel metering pump and heater within your vehicle. Reduction of the pump’s clicking noise means it can be installed in sleeping areas with less disturbance, and the B4L has the same base dimensions as the Airtronic 2 and 4kW heaters, making it a suitable replacement.

Improved temperature monitoring and heater behavior due to upgraded internal sensor and positioning. 

Improved heat exchanger design on AS3 B2L for air flow optimization and better thermostatic performance.
