What are the advantages of Viesa Parking coolers in comparision to other brands?
The Viesa parking coolers are suitable for trucks differ from the competition on a number of elements. The Viesa park coolers has the following advantages:
- Viesa parking coolers are equipped with a special compressor. This eliminates the need to mount the park cooler on a flat surface. This is because many trucks do not have a flat roof. A truck roof is often not completely straight. The big advantage of the Viesa parking cooler is therefore that they can also be mounted on sloping roofs.

How does a Viesa Parking cooler works?
A Viesa Parking cooler works separately from a truck's built-in air conditioning system. A Viesa cab cooler is therefore an addition to a truck's air-conditioning system and not a replacement!
A parking cooler runs on the truck's electrical system (the battery). So the truck's engine does not have to run while the driver is taking a rest. This saves a huge amount in fuel costs on an annual basis (an average of 264 litres of diesel per month).
The disadvantage of a parking cooler is that they are not capable of cooling a cabin! Cab coolers are only capable of keeping a cabin at a certain temperature. So it is important that the cabin has been brought to the right temperature by the truck's built-in air conditioner beforehand.
