The German Eberspächer company is a renowned manufacturer of mobile heating and cooling units. Eberspächer’s Airtonic heating line has become extremely popular in the RV industry for its innovative use of advanced oxidation catalyst technology; a technology which allows for high-performance cooling and heating without the risk of odors and smoke.

The following few paragraphs will be providing a brief overview of everything you need to know about Eberspächer Airtronic diesel heating units.This article will only be covering Eberspächer Airtronic heating units and NOT the Eberspächer Hydronic water heating systems.

Is Diesel a Safe Heating Option?

Although some campers can get a bit worried at the mention of 'diesel heating', diesel technology has advanced by leaps and bounds since it became popular in the late 1970s. As mentioned, Eberspächer heating units, in particular, function using advanced oxidation catalyst technology.

This oxidation catalyst has been demonstrated to provide a quiet, high-powered performance AND low-emission operation. This means that you don’t have to worry about thick, diesel fuel clouds.

In fact, diesel heating units are completely accepted at all major caravan parks due to their quiet and odorless nature. There are even diesel heating units, such as the Eberspächer Airtronic D4 and D4, which are engineered to run off 100% biodiesel, making them an incredibly environmentally-friendly option. In short, yes. Modern diesel technology is an extremely safe heating option.
