NEWMARKET, Ont. –ITS Distributing has announced it is carrying the Sleeping Well Plus idle-reduction system which now combines heating and cooling capabilities.
The latest system combines the indel B 12-volt air conditioning system with Webasto’s Air Top bunk heater, providing drivers with year-round comfort.
The Sleeping Well Plus features an evaporator mounted high inside the sleeper where the hottest air in the cab collects. This air is exchanged for cold air that is blown into the sleeper by an integrated six-speed cylindrical fan. The company explains the cooler air drops to the floor, forcing the hotter air to the top of the cab where it is once again exchanged for colder air. The system has the added benefit of dehumidifying the air, reducing the risk of mould formation.
The company said its system is ideal for most highway trucks that require a cost-effective heating and cooling solution while the engine is off. The Sleeping Well system can provide 3,250 btu/hr of cooling and 7,000 btu/hr of heating and can maintain cab temperatures for up to 10 hours regardless of outside weather conditions.
The system uses its own dedicated auxiliary deep cycle batteries and is independent of the truck’s main batteries. The truck’s primary batteries are charged before the auxiliary batteries, ensuring trouble-free starting, the company says.
