How It Works

The Dynamic Infrared Heater works with your in-home furnace to provide supplement heat. In short, room temperature air circulates from the rear of the Dynamic Infrared Heater, passes through a highly efficient filter, enters a chamber that houses the Infrared Quartz Bulbs, and exits as heated air from the Diathermanous Copper Plate constructed on the front of the unit. The

Dynamic Infrared Heater ideally heats a room of 500 to 700 square feet, but can be used to heat up a single room size up to 750 square feet depending on the ambient temperature. And it does all this with a noise level below 46db. The Dynamic Infrared Heater is not for use as the primary/sole heating system.


Components and Functions

A. The Dynamic Infrared Heater is constructed with 1 Infrared Quartz Bulb and a 2 resistance wire system. Air is drawn inside the Dynamic Infrared Heater, flows along the circumference of the chamber and over the Infrared Quartz Bulb. The Quartz Bulb and

RMS system produce infrared rays that heat the air which passes through the inner chamber.

B. An AC Cross Flow Fan pushes air over the Infrared Quartz Bulb. The Cross Flow Fan creates a wide flow of air using a cylindrical-shaped impeller.

C. The Dynamic Infrared Heater has a Delay Start Function which controls the AC Cross Flow

Fan. The purpose of the Delay Start Function is to allow the Heating System to heat up before the fan begins to circulate the air flow. In addition, the AC Cross Flow Fan will continue to circulate the airflow after the power is turned off to circulate the warm air from the Dynamic Infrared Heater cooling the unit down.

D. The LED Digital Display is a convenient, stylish, and modern way to display the set temperature and time. This attractive addition compliments the Dynamic Infrared Heater, in that, it simplifies and makes controlling the unit easy. Operating the heater is logical and can be done on the unit itself or by remote.

Unpacking the Dynamic Infrared Heater

1. First, check the carton to make sure there are no obvious damages that may have occurred during shipment.

2. Open the Dynamic Infrared Heater packaging and remove the heater by sliding it from the box. You may want to gently and cautiously turn the entire box upside down letting the heater slowly slide out.

3. Remove all the protective materials from the heater. It may be a good idea to keep the protective materials and packaging for storage during the off-season.


Operating Instructions

Visually inspect the Dynamic Infrared Heater for any damages before operation. Do not operate the heater if any damages are detected. Contact your dealer immediately.

NOTE: “UP” and “DOWN” arrow buttons on the control panel and remote control have dual function capabilities.

Adjust TIME / TEMP with up arrow or adjust HI / LOW settings.

Adjust TIME / TEMP with down arrow or adjust




F settings.

1) Plug the power cord directly into a conventional 120V 15 amp outlet and press the

MASTER POWER switch on the rear of the portable heater. Then press the POWER button on the front control panel or on the remote to start the unit. The LED display will show the default value as 72





Function Display

(Note: If the current ambient temperature is greater than the set temperature, the HI/LOW display, fan, and Quartz Bulbs will not operate.)

2) By pressing the




F/Down button, you can switch the temperature format from Fahrenheit to Celsius and vice versa.

Press the




F/Down to switch from Fahrenheit to Celsius.


3) By pressing the TIME button, the LED display will switch from the temperature status to the

TIME status and begin to flash. The default time will display “--“. This means that the TIME is not activated and, therefore, the heater will remain on. You must press the HI/LOW/UP button or the




F/DOWN once again within (5) seconds to set the time. Each time you press the HI/LOW/UP button, the time will increase by 0.5 Hr. If you press the




F/DOWN button, the time will decrease by 0.5 Hr. The maximum value for time is 8.0

Hr. By holding down the HI/LOW/UP button or




F/DOWN for (2) seconds, the number rotation will cycle more quickly. If you do not press the HI/LOW/UP button or




F/DOWN within (5) seconds, the time status will switch back to the temperature status.

Press TIME to switch to time status, then press HI/LOW/UP button once within 5 seconds to scroll up

5 seconds later the value switches to ambient temperature

4) Again, the default set temperature displayed on the LED display is 72


F. By pressing the

TEMP button, the LED display will switch to the temperature status and flash. You must press the HI/LOW/UP button or




F/DOWN button once again within (5) seconds to set the desired temperature. Each time you press the HI/LOW/UP button, the temperature setting will increase by 1


F. Press the




F/DOWN button and the time will decrease by



F. The maximum temperature setting is 86


F (30


F). If you hold the HI/LOW/UP button or




F/DOWN button for (2) seconds, the number rotation will cycle more quickly.

Press TEMP to switch to temperature status, then press HI/LOW/UP button once within 5 seconds to scroll up


5) Press the HI/LOW/UP button to switch from HI (rated at 1500W) to LOW (rated at 750W).

The default setting is HI.

From HI to LOW

6) To find the ambient room temperature, hold down the TEMP + TIME and then let go. The ambient temperature will be displayed. To calibrate temperature setting, hold down the

TEMP button for (5) seconds to switch to thermostat calibration status. The LED display will begin to flash. The default setting on the display is 00. The


F or


C LED light will illuminate. Press HI/LOW/UP or




F/DOWN button to scroll up and down for the correct calibration. The displayed temperature should match your wall or free-standing thermometer within (2) degrees. Once the desired temperature is set, press TEMP again to save your settings.

(Note: Make sure you understand the difference between the set/desired temperature and the ambient room temperature readings on the heater. The set/desired temperature reading is defaulted to 72 degrees Fahrenheit. You see this displayed when you first turn on the heater. The set/desired temperature reading has nothing to do with calibrating the heater. The ambient temperature is what the heater believes to be the current room temperature. To find the ambient room temperature, you must push the temperature button + time button and let go quickly. This will display the ambient room temperature and this is the temperature you want to match your home thermostat reading (primary heating device). The ambient room temperature on the heater is what needs to be calibrated. For example, if your home thermostat says 70 degrees Fahrenheit and the heater has an ambient room temperature reading of 75 degrees Fahrenheit, you will need to calibrate the heater to -5. Please keep in mind that if your home thermostat temperature sensor is in a different room, there may always be a few degrees variance between it and the heater. Now the heater will read the current room temperature 75 degree Fahrenheit as well.)


(Note: To set back to factory settings, hold down the TIME button for (5) seconds. This will set all values back to default.)

7) The Dynamic Infrared Heater can be turned off by pressing the POWER button. DO NOT


UNPLUG THE HEATER UNTIL THE FAN SHUTS DOWN. If the heater is left on using the

TIME function, there will be (5) second sound alert to let you know that the time is expiring.

If no actions are taken, the heater will shut off.

Recommendations for Maximum Performance

1. Be sure not to place the heater in an area where the air flow or air movement is great.

2. Direct the outflow towards the center of the room and not against a solid structure, like a wall for example. For larger areas, place the heater within a central location.

3. The Dynamic Infrared Heater is designed for maximum efficiency in the 68


F to 74


F range.

This is because of the ambient air moving through the heater and out constantly.

4. Existing HVAC heating system vents should be closed. This allows the heater to function in an isolated area.

5. It is not recommended to operate heater in areas exposed to non-insulated concrete or metal walls. Concrete floors should be covered to insulate the heat within the room.

6. If the heater filters become dirty or dusty, they must be cleaned for the heater to operate at its maximum efficiently.

Care, Maintenance, and Storage

Before care or maintenance is applied, always unplug the cord from the receptacle. The cabinet housing can be wiped down with water and a damp cloth or with furniture polish. The heater has a washable filter. The filter should be cleaned regularly to provide for maximum performance. Once the filter is removed, run warm water through and over the filter to remove dirt and dust. Shake all water residue from the filter and replace it back in the heater. (Note: A mild soap can be applied to assist in removing dirt and dust from the filter)

If the heater is not to be used for an extended period of time, it can be stored away. Make sure the power is turned off and the cord is unplugged from the receptacle. Wrap the cord around the handle on the rear of the portable heater. Cover the heater to prevent dust from accumulating on


the heater. You may want to repack it back in its original carton. Always store the heater in a dry and dust free environment.

(Note: You may want to clean the filter prior to storing the heater away so that it is ready for operation the next time it is put in use.)


1. PROBLEM: a. If the Heat Emitter is broken or damaged b. If the Control Panel is not responding, the temperature reading is above 86




C, or there is a burning odor coming from the portable heater c. Or if the power cord is damaged

SOLUTION: Contact the manufacture immediately. DO NOT attempt to operate the portable heater as this may cause electric shock, fire, and/or injury.

2. PROBLEM: a. The amount of heated air exiting the front of the portable heater is reduced.

SOLUTION: Check the electrostatic filter to make sure it is free of dust and dirt. Also check the front grill and rear air intake to make sure it is not being blocked by any kind of debris.

3. PROBLEM: a. The portable heater will not turn on.
