What is a thermostat and how does it work?
A thermostat is a control that is used to maintain a temperature range in the general area where the heater is located. Most analogue thermostats have an estimated range of 37º to 140º F. By adjusting the temperature knob you can set the heater to turn on and turn off automatically as required to maintain the set temperature range.
How do I set the manual thermostat?
- Turn the Thermostat Control clockwise to the highest position to start heater. Allow heater to operate and warm up the room.
- When the desired temperature/comfort level is reached, lower the temperature setting by turning the Thermostat Control counter-clockwise until the heater stops operating.
- This will now be the unit's pre-set temperature level and the thermostat will now automatically maintain that temperature range by turning the heater ON and/or OFF accordingly.
