Can heater work on DC?
Can I Run That Heater on 12 Volts DC? That’s a question we hear quite a bit. If the heater was designed to operate on 120V, then the answer is, “You can, but it’s not going to get very warm.” However, if you have a heater that’s designed for 12 volts AC then the answer is, “Yes, you can!”
