15 Customer Reviews
Get ready to see the difference—literally—when you install the AlphaTherm Windshield Washer Heater. By heating your wiper fluid to over 125 degrees F, the AlphaTherm Washer Fluid Heater sprays your windshield with a super-heated mist of fluid for powerful cleansing.
Once installed, the AlphaTherm unit works in conjunction with your factory washer spray. Just activate the spray control and the heated fluid mists your windshield to clear ice and frost in winter—bug guts and road grime in summer.
The AlphaTherm Windshield Washer Heater bolts easily in your engine compartment and utilizes the fluid in your factory washer reservoir. Powered by your vehicle’s electrical system, the washer fluid heater uses very little energy, yet is always ready to mist your windscreen with heated fluid.
The heated fluid also helps preserve the life and bolsters the effectiveness of your wiper blades. Plus, it unblocks frozen or clogged spray nozzles and keeps them clear for maximum coverage. Best yet, AlphaTherm backs your Windshield Washer Heater with a frost-free 1-year warranty.

Was easy to install but have a concern about on demand if something goes wrong with the electronics as unit is hooked-up directly to battery. lets see what happens. Have noticed the blast of hot wateris not much and after a blast windshelid re-freezes fast.

unit looks well made , have`nt had a chance to try it in below freezing temps yet , but so far it does as advertized, installation was easy, except for the bracket which is a universal bracket made to mount on an inner fender of firewall for my 09 f150 i had to fabricate my own bracket to mount it to the inner fender well as there is no room to mount it flush

Terminals on wires not able to be hooked up directly to battery. Instructions should tell you to hook the ground to alternator and the power wire cannot be hooked up to a side terminal battery. I wasted a lot of time trying to get it hooked directly to the battery. Also, I needed 2 of them for my SUV which I didn't know when I first bought it so I had to order another one. Would have been nice to know this ahead of time.

Very easy to install unit. Mount the unit on fire wall on right side , washer lines are right there . Positive wire on the unit could be a little longer just made it to the battery that is on the other side of the truck. Other than that could not ask for a simpler install. Hot washer fluid really does a super job of clearing windshield. We live in western New York near Buffalo..snow we get lots of winter weather ,snow, ice and every thing else. Alpha Therm heater clears windshield in a snap.Nice product.

If connecting directly to the battery terminal, wouldn't the Alpha heater be constantly on even with ignition off?

How is the power activated on the unit? What turns the heater on and off?
Answered by Jordan C. — Nov 12, 2010 1:45 PM
Hey Bob, The heater turns on along with your ignition, so it's always on and ready to go when you need it. You don't have to wire any switches or knobs into your cab.flag Accept Answer
