The Hades heater provides a means of heating a room without consuming precious electrical energy. It runs on all variations of diesel which, although doesn't sound very green, is an extremely efficient way of heating with very low emissions. Whilst it's certainly a compromise to our green self-sufficient outlook on life, you do have to be practical about these things.

The simple touch interface uses the familiar Bob character found on all our Ark editions. It allows you to set a fixed temperature, organise a central heating style regime, enable frost protection and keep a cap on dew point humidity. There's a fuel level indicator to make sure you're aware ahead of time when fuel is getting low.

Advanced room profiling monitors how quickly the room cools and heats in order to work out the most efficient way of keeping it warm.

The minimum output is 1.6kW which uses 100ml of diesel an hour, right up to 5kW which is 300ml an hour. As an example, the lowest setting used in a 50m³ wooden summer house maintained a temperature of 18°C when the outside temperature was 4°C. 

It comes with an integrated 10 litre tank which is enough for 100 hours of heat at the lowest setting. The disconnected diesel heater is designed to plug into an Ark but there is an option to buy a simple mains adapter if you don't have one.
