MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. — Thermo King has announced its dealers are now carrying Espar heater systems.

Espar heaters can provide in-cab heating, engine pre-heating as well as cargo heat. They are commonly used to keep the cab warm without requiring the driver to idle the truck while sleeping.

"Espar heaters eliminate the need to idle the truck for heat, which may save an active driver over a thousand dollars per year," says Jason Forman, Thermo King category specialist, accessories. "These heater systems also offer the benefit of extremely quiet operation."

Most models are available in 12- or 24-volt versions with no electrical plug-ins required, the company says. Espar says its heaters are lightweight and compact. Any Espar heater purchased through Thermo King is backed by the Thermo King dealer service network, the company says. For more information, visit
