Thermostat Operation
IMPORTANT -The wall brackets supplied with the appliance
must be used. The heater should be positioned observing
the minimum clearances stated around the heater - see
The heater is fitted with an adjustable thermostat enabling
the room temperature to be controlled by adjusting the setting
accordingly. The * setting represents a room temperature
of approximately 5°C and may be used for protection
against frost. Higher temperature settings range from 1 to

Energy Saving Tips
Other Energy Saving Tips for Around the Home
The energy we use to heat, light and power our homes
contributes over a quarter of the UK's carbon emissions, the
principle contributor to climate change.
1. Lights
Around half the energy used in the home is for heating and
hot water, so using your heating system efficiently will not
only help the environment, but also save you money !
Energy efficiency tips for heating and hot water
1. Don't set the temperature too high…
Turn off lights whenever you leave a room for more than ten
Use low-energy bulbs wherever you can as they use less
than a quarter of the electricity used by ordinary light bulbs
and last ten times longer!
2. Cooking
Use the right size pan for the food and cooker hob.
By reducing the thermostat setting by just 1ºC can reduce
your energy use by as much as 10%. And if you're going
away for the winter, leave the thermostat on the frost protection
setting to provide protection from freezing at a minimum cost.
Keep saucepan lids on - this enables you to turn down the
2. Use it where you need it…
Set the appropriate temperature on your heaters for the room
they are in; for example, leave the thermostat on a heater in a
spare bedroom on a lower setting.
3. Use it when you need it…
Use heaters fitted with timers or linked to central controllers
to turn the heating on only when you need it and automatically
switch it off when you don't.
4. Curtains…
Close your curtains at dusk to stop heat escaping through
the windows.
5. Windows…
Nearly 25% of heat loss can occur through poorly insulated
frames and single glazing. If you can't afford to double glaze
all your windows, go for the rooms you heat most.
6. Treat your hot water tank...give it a jacket
An insulating jacket for hot water tanks only costs a few pounds
and pays for itself within months. Fit one that's at least 75mm
(3") thick and you could save £10-£15 a year.
7. Water…
Use a shower if you have one to save time, money and water.
Don't set the thermostat too high on your water heater - 60°C/
140°F is usually adequate for bathing and washing.
Put the plug in when running hot water in your sink - leaving
hot taps running is both wasteful and expensive.
Ensure dripping taps are repaired quickly. In just one day,
you could waste enough water to fill a bath.
The product complies with the European Safety Standards EN60335-2-30 and the European Standard Electromagnetic Compatibility
(EMC) EN55014, EN60555-2 and EN60555-3 which cover the essential requirements of EEC Directives 73/23 and 89/336
