Great Small Universal Heater

The picture in the current catalog and the first to come up on our web are for photo purposes. The mounting brackets are on the platform and when installed in a vehicle normally the mount tabs are at the top which rotates the photo 180 degrees and puts the hose connections on the passenger side.

Yes it is 5” which is up and down and the width side to side is 10.250. The depth from front to back of the motor assembly is 9”. It could be rotated if desired but direction of air flow would be up to the installer to modify as desired.

Well sir, this will work well in most under dash applications. This 12,000 BTU universal heater is fully self contained, but has a compact in size. It measures only 10-1/4" wide, 9" deep and 5" tall. The 3 speed fan blows air through a heater core that is plumbed just like any new car. It includes a universal switch, a fuse and wiring.
