    There are 4 key things that interest me on these (or any similar) heaters:

    1. Noise Levels
    2. Electrical Consumption
    3. Fuel Consumption
    4. Heat Regulation

    Not sure in your installation you will be able to directly check this, but for #4, how is the heater running controlled by a thermostat? Is there a sensor in the controller box with the rotary switch? Is there an external temp sensor you can plug in to perform this function.
    This seems to be the biggest limitation for an Out-the-Box Eberspacher D2 install on a Camper/Motorhome, where you either have to rejig the wiring to use the controller temp sensor (if you have an 801), or fit the optional temp sensor (not included with the standard kit set). What is the Planar like in this respect?

    4 Pass. I turn it up it blows out more hot air. I turn it down it blows out less hot air.

    Clever people the Chinese,

    If they can get one then they will copy it.

    Yes it came of Ebay, and surprisingly to me I did not pay any duty, I was expecting to have to.

    Noise.
    The exhaust pipe is now through the wall and the silencer on the outside. I suppose I could get it quieter by taking the inlet to the outside but I am not bothering to do that.

    Background noise in the garage door closed 22 dB
    Heater running lowest setting 2m away 30 to 32 dB
    Heater running highest setting 2m away 45 to 47 dB

    I am happy with those for a garage.

    Do not forget there are no physical barriers on these readings as you would have in a van.

    That's a new Facebook group created one week ago cause someone wants to buy one and thought it the best way to collate all knowledge available to enable them to form a conclusion.
