Installation and operation

How do I install my heater?

By design, installation is quick and easy, and limited skills are required.

If you are a do-it-yourselfer and you are going to install the radiator yourself, please read the complete installation instructions before attempting to install.

This is an electric heater, so always keep safety in mind and follow the safety instructions provided when installing and using your heater.

  • Do not use the radiator as a drying rack for towels or wet clothing.
  • Always avoid direct contact with water.
  • Do not drop when handling the radiator.

Here is a list of the tools you will need:

  • An electric power drill suitable for wall drilling
  • 8mm drill bit for plaster or dry wall
  • A hammer
  • A Phillips head and standard flat screwdriver
  • All fastening materials such as brackets, screws and dowels are included in the package

Guides for dill patterns and hole spacing for each model of radiator can be found in the accompanying layouts and dimensional drawing.

When installing, it is important to leave ample clearance space between the wall and the heater and a minimum of 5 cm/ 2 in. of clearance above and below the heater when mounting them below a window.

If you have any questions about installation, contact the manufacturer, and a well-trained technician will gladly help you.

How do you operate the radiator for optimal savings?

All operations and settings are controlled through the thermostat.

One thing to keep in mind is that it is never good to allow the room to cool down completely. The majority of energy is consumed when the radiator is going from a very low setting or ‘off’ mode to the desired room temperature. Therefore, it is most cost effective to keep the thermal ceramic bricks warm enough to reach optimal temperatures using as little energy as possible.

For example, a common setting for the daytime temp is 20-21 during the day and 17-18 at night. By lowering the temperature only a few degrees, the radiator’s internal brick temperature is maintained and can be turned back up in the morning using very little energy.

The same goes for when you are out during the day and you will be returning home in the evening. You can set the thermostat to a lower temperature during the day and have it switch on in the late afternoon, returning to full temperature by the time you get home.

Of course all radiators can be turned of completely by simply switching them off or really lowering the temperate.
