Description

The HVAC thermostat allows you to control the air conditioning system (HVAC system) within a zone or room. The HVAC thermostat and the air conditioning system communicate via an HVAC interface (CoolMaster). See Push buttons with display.

The HVAC thermostat can be operated locally or remotely via a touchscreen, smartphone or tablet. Unlike the HVAC thermostat, the thermostat as described in thermostat can operate in combination with a heating or cooling module. See Heating- or cooling module.

Up to 20 HVAC thermostats may be added in one Niko Home Control installation.

Overview


Operation

Each HVAC thermostat can be programmed independently. There are three adjustable temperature settings (DAY, NIGHT and CUSTOM) and two weekly programmes to choose from. You can use the pre-programmed settings or enter your personal settings. Each temperature setting has two values depending on the operating mode that has been activated (COOLING or HEATING).

In addition, there are three status options (ECO, PROTECT and ON/OFF) as well as the option to enter the temperature of your choice. Statuses ECO and PROTECT cannot be selected via the HVAC thermostat.

Follow the steps below to select one of the temperature settings or pre-programmed weekly programmes:

  1. Touch one of the buttons to light up the display. When not in use, the display is dimmed to reduce energy consumption.
  2. Press button "C" to view the menu.

Installation

An HVAC thermostat can be mounted in any room fitted with indoor units of the HVAC system. It controls the heating or cooling for the room in which it is mounted.

The HVAC thermostat only functions properly when the temperature within the room can be measured accurately. Try to eliminate as many factors as you can that may inhibit the thermostat’s ability to accurately control the room temperature.

Do not mount the HVAC thermostat:

  • in direct sunlight.
  • on an outside wall.
  • within the immediate vicinity of a heat generating source (heater, radiator, etc.) or electrical equipment that may radiate heat (TV, computer, etc.).
  • behind a curtain.

Do not allow air to circulate behind the thermostat. If necessary, close the holes in the flush-mounting box.

See Installation in Push buttons with display.
