Quote from their site: "Eberspaecher's air heaters are independent of both the engine and of the vehicle's own heat balance. They draw in cool room or outside air, heat this up and then deliver it to the interior of the vehicle."
I think it would be considerably harder to install. With the water heater, all you need to do is Tee into the existing water loop and the rest is already there - A fan to recirculate the air already inside the car through the existing heater core. 100% of the install is outside the passenger compartment and no ducting of any air into or out of the car is requiredPhximiev wrote:Again, not to beat a dead horse, but this does look like it would be easier to install as one wouldn't have to touch the existing system.
