JLang Posted March 31, 2017 Report Share Posted March 31, 2017 This winter I installed a Tanis preheater. Worked great. I did not invest in a mobile phone connection to turn it on -- on top of the cost, cell coverage at the hangar is not great -- so just left it plugged in when not flying. I believe the Tanis instructions say this is fine, but now that weather is warming, I'm wondering when to stop. Spring in Michigan can vary from 80 degrees F to 10, sometimes within a day. Other than the cost of electricity (paid by the FBO) and eventual wearing out of the preheater (hopefully well in the future), I can't think of a downside to keeping it plugged in, at least until I'm confident temps won't fall below 40. Do others keep their preheaters on constantly? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
