Preheating engines for winter operations is at best a miserable chore and at worst can be a disaster for the plane, the pilot & flight operations - until the development of the E-Z Heat Aircraft Engine Heater. The E-Z Heat was designed to provide very efficient engine heating for virtually all propeller driven aircraft. The heaters consist of a flexible synthetic pad that easily conforms to the contours of the oil pan. This pad will heat 12 qts of oil from -40° to +60°F in an hour while using approximately 300 watts of electricity. The heater is 1/32" thick. which enables the immediate heat transfer from heater to engine.
The heaters are thermostatically controlled, so leaving them plugged in overnight means the plane will be ready to go in the morning. Normally, complete pre-heating takes only 3-5 hours for the entire engine to be nice and warm. With this new lighted plug (110V models only, 220V models include no plug to allow for European outlet variance), the owner simply needs to look out the window or peek in the hangar to see if they remembered to plug in their E-Z Heat engine pre-heater. Molded into the male plug end is a newly designed light emitting diode (LED). This LED allows the operator to visually recognize if there is electrical power to the preheat system even from a distance. FAA approved for certificated aircraft.
End your cold weather starting problems and reduce premature engine wear.
E-Z Heat Installation Instructions
| Power Consumption: |
300 watts or less / Thermostatically Controlled
110/120 volts (models 440, 441 and 540 are available in 220 volts).
The adhesive is already on the pad. All you need to do is peel and stick it on! (excluding model 470)
3 to 5 hours on cold soaked engine, although, since unit is thermostatically controlled, it may be left on overnight, or all the time. Cowl covers and prop covers are recommended for extreme cold weather, they also reduce preheat time.
Lite Brite Plug:
With this new lighted plug, the owner simply has to look out the window or peek in the hangar to see if they remembered to plug in their E-Z Heat engine pre-heater! (excluding model 470)
Only 9 ounces!
Convection/conduction, the safest way of heat transfer available. No flames or glowing elements are potential fire hazards.

Great product! Very simple to install and to use! Thanks
Nice product, easy to install.
Good product. Edge sealant included. Easy to apply.
The heater was easy to install and came with high temperature sealant for the edges and a plenty long cord with a light up plug. It worked immediately and Iâ€™m happy with the results.
Easy to install, works great
This heater works absolutely awesome. I live here in Alaska, and a three hour preheat with this oil pan heater and a heavy engine blanket even has the cylinders warm to the touch on an 0-320 Lycoming
Works great, e-z to install!
Great price and great product! Heater does not need any paperwork for the FAA which is a plus. EZ-Heat answered my questions about what model for the engine in my Piper.
I ordered the model 440 which was specified for my TCM TSIO-360-SB2 engine (M20K). However, the fit isnt very good. That model is called a 4x4 square. But where the cord enters the heating element, there is about a 1x1x1/3 fatter section that must house the brains of the device (Ill call it the control box). The fatter control box section is on one side along the adjacent side of the square--essentially making the device 5 long on one side, 4 long on the opposite, and 4 wide with one side L shaped--offset such that it seems the control box should go around the drain plug (the L), allowing the heating pad to be mounted as close to the bottom of the sump as possible. But putting the control box to the side of the drain plug puts the side of the heating element over the side of the oil pan, which has semicircular cutouts long the sides allowing for the application of a long socket wrench when undoing the oil pan. There was really only one place to put it--the entire thing behind the drain plug, with the control box towards the plug. This wasnt great though as the oil pan is sloping up there, the rear edge of the heating pad is completely against the rear edge of the oil pan (towards the accessory gearbox), and--most importantly--the control box is near (behind) the drain plug. The curvature of the pan in that location led to the control box not sticking along one edge, despite my preheating all surfaces per the directions and applying pressure longer than the specified 15 minutes. I hope that this wont result in the whole pad peeling off or otherwise coming unstuck over time. It seems this model should really be just a bit narrower with a centered control box on the short side. Perhaps a 3.25x4 pad, with the 1 square control box centered, meant to be mounted away from the drain plug. I do think this is a relatively efficient and elegant way to heat the oil, and it seems to work well (it does take some time when the air/oil is really cold). I hope mine stays put.
Per the supplier: No, a log book entry is not required by an A&P.
Per the supplier: Yes, they can either use the EZ540 or the EZ441 for that engine type.
Per the supplier: No, they do not require field approvals.
It comes on at around 120F and shuts off at around 165F.
Per the supplier: You can leave this on for about a week or two as long as you fly your aircraft at least once or twice a month.
The manufacturer's warranty is 3 years.
Approx 2.4 amps
These are the same units, only difference is the input voltage. The 07-05200 is intended for use with 110v input voltage. The 07-05200-2 is intended for 220v input voltage. 220v input is commonly found in Europe. The USA wall outlets are all 110v.
The heaters can take a slight curve but can not be creased due to the fact that they have heating elements throughout the pad so they can get broken, burning out the pad, if creased or bent to sharply. The round sump will take the 360 which has tabs so that you don't have to bend it.
As long as the paint is in good shape and not chipping or pealing off, you can just stick it on the painted sump.
