Using Controllers.

Every installation of our heating panels will vary according to the owners requirements and type of area to be heated, the panel should be installed by an electrician who can fix it either to a simple on/off switch or daily programmer, we can supply simple and user friendly programmers however your electrician can give you further advice on programmers as there are many on the market ranging from just £50 to hundreds!

Our panels do have a safety thermal cut out and will modulate so once optimal temperature is reached the panel will switch itself on and off to maintain temperature and therefore reduce the energy consumption of the panel.

Programmers will allow you to have better control of the heating and therefore become more energy efficient and not waste energy heating a room when it is not in use, even a simple timer switch will make certain the heater is switched off at the end of the day!

Our programmers have the following features                        Go to the shop

  • 7 day programmable. Set up individually the daily heating programmes ensuring the heating will come on and off when needed.
  • 4 set points. Choose 4 set points throughout the day to provide you with not only a morning and evening “on” period but also a comfort or background warmth during the day if required.
  • Memory back up in case of power failure.
  • Celsius or Fahrenheit temperature selection.
  • 12 or 24 hour clock.
  • Manual override.
  • Holiday mode.

Each heating panel will not necessarily require an individual programmer, our controllers will allow you to wire in a number of panels into one programmer, this maybe in one large room or heaters in two or three rooms of the house to create a heating zone. Try to create zones that have similar heating requirements, as time, thought and money spent at this stage can save you energy in the long term.

We have chosen these devices because of the current rating being ideal for running a number of heaters, whereas the small central heating type thermostats do not have sufficient current rating, for example: to run 2 x 600 watt panels at 230 volts will need over 5 amps.

More expensive controllers will allow more complex programming of individual heaters and electrical equipment rather than simply working on zones, please ask your electrician for more advice.
