being filled with industry-first characteristics. This heater will
bring you warmth and piece of mind for the years to come. If
you have any question concerning your unit, do not hesitate
to communicate with our customer service department.
Hybrid Series is a convection and forced-air wall heater of
great power including an integrated electronic thermostat, a
completely quiet timer, a night light with integrated switch, a
contemporary look and a user-friendly interface. The thermostat manages when the fan needs to start in order to keep a
constant temperature.
Please read and understand this user guide completely
before using the heater. Failing to follow this user guide and

displayed in the bottom right corner). Display will stop flashing after five (5) seconds. While the remaining time flashes,
press again the button on the left to set the minutes to 5, 10,
15, 20, 25 or 30. If display does not flash any more, press
