Once these temperatures are set, these are the ones used within the programme settings. This is an excellent opportunity to ensure all rooms in the property are set to individual needs and requirements in mind. For instance your comfort temperature in the lounge/ living room maybe 21 degrees, but in the bedroom it maybe 18 degrees, the flexibility is endless.


Scrolling through the modes will allow you to select one of the four programme functions. ALL programme options have a default setting as detailed in the full instruction manual with PRO being able to be modified and user-defined.

It’s always a good idea to write down the required programmes per day before you start this operation.  Be aware you will be timed out of this process if there is a long delay, any changes made before the timeout will be saved.

To adjust the settings in PRO –

  • Start in standby, clock visible
  • Press and hold the ON button for approx. 7 seconds or until the screen in fig 2 appears
  • This operation always starts at MIDNIGHT on Monday morning
  • The + and – buttons allow you to select the time segment
  • The OK button is used to choose your Comfort, Economy or Anti-frost per time segment
  • Once Monday is set, the programme will automatically scroll through to Tuesday once you press the + button at 24h. This will then continue through the rest of the days.
  • You can complete the process by pressing OK or automatically when you exceed the last time segment on the last day.

Visually the Comfort setting will have the time segment at the top, Economy at the bottom and if Anti-frost is selected the segment will be blank. Visual examples in Fig. 4 below.

Individual days can be edited by scrolling through the days using the + and – buttons until you reach the desired time and day.

To select your defined programme simply follow the directions in MODES.
