Author's Heater Choice

The author’s choice would be an AU Focus Diesel Heater non Bluetooth model. The 2-kilowatt Diesel Heater made by AU Focus is undoubtedly the biggest selling unit in our heater range. Other AU Focus models we carry in store, include a Bluetooth option, allowing control from your phone or other mobile device. We also carry a portable version which can be left standing outside. This mobile unit uses a 60mm duct to pump heated air into a tent, cabin or even a motorhome.


Unlike other available brands, the AU Focus models come with a two-year warranty and a five litre stainless steel fuel tank (excluding the portable model). The fuel tank has a locking cap and a fuel cut off tap all as part of the standard kit.

That is not all though! It also comes with a premium grade washable fuel filter, a muffler which is an actual muffler (many aren’t) and a roll of premium grade fuel line, one of the quietest diesel fuel pumps you will find on the market. Plus, it comes with all the exhaust and ducting required for a standard installation. 

AU Focus boasts a significant Spare Parts range which we carry in store at Carac, this includes extra lengths of ducting and flexible exhaust pipe, air intake filters, replacement fuel line, Tank Guards, extra outlet vents, fuel pumps and glow plugs.

If you are looking for a Diesel heater, look no further than AU Focus and be completely comfortable with both the heater and in your choice.
