The Exciting Adax Neo
The Neo is in a class of its own, not only can it be used as a simple on/off heater, its digital controls allow it to be programmed. In common with all Adax heaters, the vents are situated at the top. However, the modern design gives the Neo a contemporary look. The panel is painted to a very high standard and comes in a variety of different colours including white, silver, black, and red. The Neo’s digital control allows the homeowner a greater flexibility in both comfort and economy.
For example, you want to heat your bedroom to 22°C to prepare for bed, but you do not want to sleep in a room that warm. With the Neo, you have the choice of either turning off the heater every night, or creating a simple programme to reduce the heater’s output at the same time every night for a set number of hours. This will achieve the lower temperature you desire during the night, and when the programme finishes, the heater will revert to your chosen room temperature of 22°C.
All NEO Heaters can be fitted with feet which gives you a choice of free-standing or wall mounted.
Simple Heat Calculations
(Our calculations for Spain)
Measure the area of the room to be heated in m2.
Allow 100 watts per m2 for areas needing to be warm, e.g. Living rooms and Bathrooms.
Allow 75-100 watts per m2 for areas such as bedrooms which you may not require to have the same level of heating.
(add extra to rooms with higher than normal ceilings,
remember some rooms are colder than others particularly north facing rooms)
NEO recommended calculations In Norway
(Please note that in Spain, Portugal and France most houses are not very well insulated in comparison to Norwegian homes. Please select poor insulation when considering the size of your heater or if in doubt use the 100w for every m2 rule)
The approx running cost are 23 cents ( including iva ) per kilowatt hour , based on Iberdrola standard tariff. (rates vary, please check your individual tariff on your electricity bill in your area)
This means that for every 1 kw used continuously for one hour it will cost you 23 cents.
The total cost for a 1kw heater running continuously for 24 hours would therefore be € 5.52.
(These figures are greatly reduced with the thermostat in operation)
You can work out roughly how much your heating would be using our heaters the following way.
Work out the square meterage of the room/rooms you want to heat. The chart will show you the size of radiator in Watts that would be needed to effectively heat that room.
Each 100 watts will cost you 2.3 cents including iva per hour on the standard tariff (Iberdrolla´s figures, the correct term is 23 cents /kilowatt hour, it means the same).
The cost is varied by the fact that Adax heaters have thermostats built into them and therefore are not running continuously for one hour as they will be reaching the set temperature and turning off.
The thermostat will also regulate according to differing factors like the outdoor temperature and how many open doors or windows you have in the area where the heaters are fitted.
A heater with a greater wattage does not use more energy, and does not cost more to run. The heater’s element will be working less frequently, which also gives a lower surface temperature.
The Neo is the latest model in the very successful, tried and tested line of Adax Convector Heaters. However, to fully appreciate what these heaters have to offer, an understanding of the simple terminology associated with the digital thermostat is necessary.
The Comfort Temperature is the temperature you set your heater to in order to achieve your desired room temperature. For example: 22°C.
The Cutback Temperature is the pre-set temperature you want the heater to reduce to for a period of time. For example: When you are at work you may select a cutback temperature of 5°C (In effect turning the heater off while you are out). However, at night time you may choose a cutback temperature of 12°C while you are asleep.
Controls. There are 5 buttons on the side of the heater.
The Function button allows you to change the functions of the other buttons, and set their subsequent commands.
Increase the value in the digital display whether displaying temp, time, or day.
Decrease the value in the digital display.
Using this control as instructed you will be able to set a cutback temperature and time for five consecutive days. (Usually a daytime cutback during weekdays, so that the temperature setting is reduced for a set period of time while you are at work).
Using this control as instructed you will be able to set a cutback temperature and time for seven consecutive days. (Usually night time cutback for when you are asleep,).
NB. When turned on for the first time after purchase, you must select one of three modes: Home; Office; or Cabin (Norwegian Log Cabin) depending on where you intend to put the heater. Depending on which mode you select, some of the Function commands will vary. The default option is Home. Home.
If you just want to use it as a manually controlled heater, without programming it, just press the button while turning it on. Release the "F", then just press the or accordingly.
Calibration: If the heater display temperature and the room temperature do not correspond, then the heater may need calibrating. This is easy to do. All NEO heaters are able to be calibrated.
Each Neo Heater comes with an instruction book, with pictures, that explain these functions.
