There are different electric heating systems: convective, radiant wall, radiating ceiling and floor. The convective, which is discussed here, is energy-consuming and offers a poor quality of comfort. The installation must comply with the standard: "Heating systems in buildings; Calculation method of basic heat loss (NF En 12-831) ".
If you want to equip a bathroom, the standards are even more rigorous. Follow the instructions exactly.
For your safety, turn off the main power supply before connecting the heater to the mains.
Connect the convector
Connect the convector via a junction box provided for this purpose. For the safety of the installation, never via a plug. The convector must be in the immediate vicinity of the junction box.
Locate the fixings of the platinum
To keep the space of at least 1 cm between the convector and the wall, the radiator is hung on a plate. It must be placed at least 15 cm above the finished ground. Check the plumb and then locate the fixing holes.
Drill and insert the fasteners
Drill the holes and fill them with an ankle adapted to the nature of the partition. The convector is a lightweight unit: special heavy duty fixings are not useful.
Screw and check the platinum plumb
Screw the turntable to the wall, checking the plumb. A small offset does not affect the operation of the installation, but the radiator will be crooked. If necessary, rectify and finally tighten the screws.
