New thermostat arrives !!

11 Nov

After many years faithful service time has come to retire the old thermostat,  this style thermostat first appeared way back on the old red Compact 1600 heaters and remained in service for the HS1600, HS1800 and HS2000 as well as the HS2800.   So after many tens of thousands of impressions the mould tool has finally cried enough.

In keeping with the principle ‘keep it simple’  this new thermostat does not disappoint.  Two easy to operate knobs allow for quick control of both the heaters operation and desired temperature levels whilst clear and concise feedback from the inbuilt LED’s provide immediate user feedback and system status.

The New Thermostat will be phased in during the period running up to the end of 2015 with all heaters being equipped with this new thermostat going forward into 2016.

    Is the new thermostat compatible with the HS1600?

      Hi Matt. The new thermostat will work with the HS2000 and HS2800 post February 2010. So no sorry its not compatible with an HS1600

    That’s a shame, my thermostat looks identical to the old one pictured in article. I think it needs to be replaced though as it has never clicked the heater off once up to temperature. Are they still available?
