Question about Supplemental Heater

So I did that vin look up thing to get my original window sticker and their is a 250$ charge for a PTC supplemental heater.... Is this that electric rapid heater thing I have read about? If so... How rapid are we talking because it seems like mine takes quite a bit to start blowing nice warm air.....

How did you get your sticker again? I not too sure about that heater, It might be an electric boost heater of some sort!

My supplemental heater starts blowing warm air in about 90 seconds. Glad that I have it.

Well if yours takes 90 seconds mine is DEFINITELY not working...
Any idea on how to diagnose this? Where is it located?

checked mine tonight it was well below 0 and i noticed that it worked if it was on number two setting and most noticeable on the face setting. if i cranked it up to number 4 the air was drastically cooler...this would have been nice to know over the past 4 winters ive owned the truck! I always left it on 4 and just kept turning it on to see if it was warm. hope this works for you too. It wasnt as hot as i would think but it was warm air coming out on the number too setting and if i turned it to 4 if was freezing

Live in Arizona so not that cold here in the winter. Mine blows warm in about 1 1/2 minute as well. Never would have thought I needed one in AZ but sure is nice not waiting on truck to warm up to have heat. Neighbor has 7.3 and takes 10 min to warm up
