The use of a room thermostat, which momentarily turns off the heating when the desired temperature is reached, keeps a constant temperature in a room. This unit opens or closes the heating circuit, not according to the temperature of the radiators, but that of the ambient air. It therefore takes into account the presence of a chimney or auxiliary heating, and heat losses.

1. The unit is fixed to the wall with two screws, after drilling and buffering. For the passage of electrical cables, nail a bead molding on the plinth.
2. Connect both power and ground wires to the thermostat terminals. The connection made here produces a cut by rise: the heating stops when the temperature reaches a certain degree. The same device includes two other? terminals for the cut-off by fall: the heating is recovering, road when the temperature decreases, reaching a certain degree. The first solution provides better comfort.
3. Cut the hood of the unit with an electrician's knife to allow entry of the conductors.
4. Place the hood on the thermostat.
5. Screw in the fixing screw. The holes in the hood allow contact between the ambient air and the thermostat.
6. Fit the molding cover by pressing.
7. Then set the thermostat to the chosen position. The room thermostat should not be placed anywhere in a room. Place it at a suitable height (about 1.50 m) to be able to adjust it, and in a place "representative" of the temperature of the room: neither above a radiator, nor near a window, nor just behind a door.
