Idling a tractor engine for in-cab comfort in the summer or ensuring cold starts can be very costly. Aside from increasing fuel costs and adding additional wear on your engine, additional idle clogs up a truck’s EGR and aftertreatment systems. Carrier’s auxiliary power unit (APU) lets you turn off your engine, stay comfortable and decrease your operating costs.
The Carrier APU is externally mounted on side rails, protected in its own weatherproof compartment and runs off the truck’s fuel supply. This innovative hybrid diesel-electric system saves fuel, runs quieter than a truck engine, reduces emissions and provides reliable, all-night comfort for drivers.The Carrier APU also offers:
- Sleeper air conditioning
- Sleeper heating
- Powered cabin household accessories
- Charged truck batteries
- Warmed truck engine
- Compatible with shore power
- Monitored battery charge
We are fully-equipped with the newest diagnostic to help solve your toughest problems, and our aftermarket support programs keep your equipment performing reliably and efficiently as long as you own it.
