IMPORTANT

WARNING - THE SURFACE OF THIS HEATER

CAN BE HOT.

• The surface temperatures of this heater are within the requirements of EN60335-2-61, the European Standard covering the safety requirements for Electric Storage

Heaters, and momentary contact with any part of the heater should not cause injury. However, in order to be effective, heaters of any type do get hot, especially around the air outlet grille.

• If the supply cord is damaged, it must be replaced by a qualifi ed individual in order to avoid a hazard.

• This appliance can be used by children aged from 8 years and above and persons with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities or lack of experience and knowledge if they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance in a safe way and understand the hazards involved. Children must not play with the appliance. Cleaning and user maintenance must not be made by children without supervision.

• Children of less than 3 years should be kept away unless continuously supervised. Children aged from 3 years and less than 8 years shall only switch on/off the appliance provided that it has been placed or installed in its intended normal operating position and they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance in a safe way and understand the hazards involved.

Children aged from 3 years and less than 8 years must not plug in, regulate and clean the appliance or perform user maintenance.

CAUTION — Some parts of this product can become

very hot and cause burns. Particular attention has to be given where children and vulnerable people are present.

• If aged or infi rm persons, or young children, are likely to be left unsupervised in the vicinity of a heater precautions should be taken to ensure that prolonged contact with the heater cannot occur. Where particularly vulnerable people are likely to be left unsupervised in the vicinity of the heater we recommend that a guard is fi tted around the heater, as is normal with heating appliances in similar circumstances.

CAUTION: DO NOT COVER SURFACES OF THE

HEATER AND DO NOT OBSTRUCT AIR OUTLET

GRILLES.

• Surfaces of the heater should not be covered or obstructed as this can cause excessive temperatures that can be hazardous and may cause safety cut-outs to operate. This will stop the heater from working.

• Do not put clothes, fabrics or any combustible materials on the heater.

• Do not allow objects to come within 250mm (10”) of the top and 75mm (3”) of the ends of the heater. Do not allow any obstruction to be placed on the fl oor within 300mm (12”) of the front of the heater and 75mm (3”) of each side.

• Curtains must not come to within 75mm (3”) of the top of the heater.

• DO NOT SIT OR STAND ON THE HEATER.

• DO NOT PLACE OBJECTS IN CONTACT WITH THE

HEATER.

• IMPORTANT - Due to the newness of materials the heater will produce a smell for the fi rst few days of operation. Rooms must be well ventilated and young children, caged birds, or persons with respiratory complaints must not remain in close proximity to the heater during the fi rst 48 hours of operation.

PLEASE NOTE: YOUR HEATER IS VERY HEAVY AND

MUST BE SECURELY FIXED TO A SOUND WALL.

• No attempt should be made to move the heater without fi rst seeking specialist advice. If you are not happy that the heater has been securely fi xed, please inform your installer.

The benefi ts of Quantum

Quantum is designed to be a responsive heating system that meets your comfort requirements while optimising energy use.

The heater releases heat in two ways:

1. A small amount of heat is dispersed by ‘natural’ convection and radiation from the heater case.

2. The vast majority of heat is released using the builtin fan that pushes hot air out from the heat outlet grille at the bottom of the product.

Minimising the release of stored heat from the outer casing means that more energy is available when warmth is required. This makes more effi cient use of the stored energy as you can ‘turn off’ the heater when you are out or do not need it.

Heater Commissioning

IMPORTANT - The new materials in the heater will produce a slight smell for the fi rst few days of operation.

Rooms must be well ventilated and young children, caged birds, or persons with respiratory complaints must not remain in close proximity to the heater during the fi rst

48 hours of operation.

During fi rst operation of the fan you may notice a small amount of dust discharged from the air outlet grille at the bottom of the product.

BUT

THIS IS NORMAL

.

Function

Compared with traditional storage heaters the amount of energy released from the outer case of the heater is signifi cantly reduced, resulting in lower surface temperatures. This allows more effi cient running because the Quantum is heating the room only when you want it to.

O

CCASIONAL CLICKING SOUNDS DURING

OPERATION ARE DUE TO TEMPERATURE

CHANGES IN THE STORAGE CORE

.

The stored energy is primarily released by using a low speed fan to ‘push’ the heat from the stored core and into the room. Running the timed programs or adjusting the temperature thermostat will prompt the heater to run the fan automatically if it is required.

NOTE: THERE IS A DELAY OF UP TO TWO MINUTES

ON THE FAN OPERATION WHEN SWITCHING TO

‘Comfort On’ AND ‘Comfort Off’, THIS IS NORMAL.

Summer

When heat is not needed both wall switches may be turned off. Turn these both back on when heat is

needed again in autumn, all of your previously stored settings and programmes will be remembered by the the heater.

The minimum room temperature setting is 14°C.

The maximum temperature setting available is 26°C.

A temperature of approximately 20°C represents a

normal room temperature.

It is normal for the fan to stop running for periods of time.

This happens because the room temperature is at or above the temperature set on the control and the room does not need more heat at this time.

Saving’ settings.

3. BACK shows previous programming stage.

4. The periods during which the heater is providing heat are defi ned as ‘Comfort On’ (this is shown at the bottom of the screen). Outside of these periods the heater will not deliver heat and these periods are called ‘Comfort Off’.

During the ‘Comfort On’ periods the low speed fan will run. During the ‘Comfort Off’ periods the fan will not run.

If the heater is ‘Comfort Off’ and heat is required , press the ADVANCE button. If the heater is ‘Comfort On’ and heat is not required, press the ADVANCE button and it will go off until the beginning of the next ‘Comfort On’ period.

5. SELECTOR DIAL can be turned clockwise and anticlockwise and enables the required room temperature to be adjusted. The screen colour changes for warmer and cooler settings, showing deep blue through to bright red.

To check what setting the heater is currently using press the Selector Dial once and the timer mode will be displayed e.g. ‘Out All Day’.

6. ADVANCE overrides the time settings and changes the operational state of the fan, which will remain ON until the next OFF period is due, or OFF until the next

ON period is due.

The Selector Dial is also used within the menu options to select and confi rm your settings.

Boost

A supplemental heating (boost) element controlled by the electronic thermostat is provided for occasions when a brief increase in heating is required. This will operate only by selecting ‘Menu’, then ‘Boost’ and then selecting a boost period of 1 hour, 2 hours, 3 hours, 4 hours or

Auto Boost.

Note: The boost element will only activate if the level of stored energy is less than 50% of the full charge.

Use this function only if you require a room temperature that is greater than what can be achieved using the stored energy alone.

Boost on’ will be displayed on the home screen when boost is selected.

Auto Boost allows the heater to use the boost element to maintain the selected temperature automatically. This ensures that the temperature is correct if ever the core is depleted, but will increase the running cost of the heater.

User Information

Press and hold the Selector Dial to display the User

Information menu, three choices are available;

SP Range - enables adjustment of the temperature range available. Maximum range 7°C to 30°C.

Factory - return all settings to the factory presets - Yes or No.

Extra Charge - forces an extra charge of up to four hours during off-peak periods.

If the output of the heater is not able to deliver the required comfort level then it is possible to force the heater to store additional energy. In this way more electrical energy is stored during the off-peak period and this will increase comfort levels. Up to four hours additional off-peak charging can be selected.

NOTE: The extra charge option will lead to more energy being stored during the off peak period, this will lead to higher running costs. Only use this setting when a room is consistently below the required temperature and you are sure that the timer mode is set up and selected correctly.

Important

During the initial operation some odour may be noticed due to the newness of materials used in manufacture. This is normal and will disappear after a short period of use. It is however advisable to keep the room well ventilated.

ROOMS MUST BE WELL VENTILATED AND YOUNG CHILDREN, CAGED BIRDS, OR PERSONS WITH

RESPIRATORY COMPLAINTS MUST NOT REMAIN IN CLOSE PROXIMITY TO THE HEATER DURING THE

FIRST 48 HOURS OF OPERATION.

Cleaning

To maintain the external appearance of the heater it need only be wiped over occasionally with a dry duster. During the summer months, or at other times when the appliance is not in use and is completely cold, the opportunity should be taken to wipe over with a damp cloth. Do not use abrasive cleaning powders or furniture polish.

Discolouration of wall fi nishes can sometimes occur immediately above a heater due to the properties of some paints and decorating materials or the presence of environmental impurities in the air (such as soot or incense generated from the burning of candles, etc.). A suitable shelf (available from Creda Heating) may be fi tted to limit the extent of any wall discolouration.
