Your heater thermostat should be user-friendly while economical on your electric bill at the same time. The Dimplex EVX050 thermostat has several features to save on your utility bill. This thermostat allows you to lock in the desired temperature to keep multiple people from turning the heater up and down and using extra energy to reach a higher temperature. The background function allows the temperature to drop a set amount below your comfort zone temperature when you leave a room. This does not allow the room to become very cold and eliminates the need for the heater to run for an extended period when you return to the room.

  1. 1

    Turn the left top dial to the mode you desire. Rotate the dial to choose comfort to maintain the temperature on the thermostat dial. Choose frost protection to start the heater when the temperature drops below -8.89 degrees Celsius. Choose background to maintain a lower temperature when you are out of the room. The display underneath illuminates to show which setting the heater is on.

  2. 2

    Turn the top left dial up to number 9 for the thermostat to operate at maximum level. When the room reaches a comfortable temperature, turn the dial to a lower number until the heater thermostat switches off. The neon light on the display will go out.

  3. 3

    Insert one of the two locking pins on the back of the thermostat into the bottom centre hole. Insert the pin into the hole and tap it in with needle-nose pliers. This action locks the thermostat control to the number you selected on the front-right dial in Step 2.

  4. 4

    Turn the background setting dial in the centre of the thermostat to a number between -2 degrees and -7 degrees. When you turn the left top dial to background, the room temperature will drop by the amount of degrees you select.

  5. 5

    Turn the top left dial to "Off" to turn the thermostat off.

Tips and warnings

  • Using the lowest background temperature allows the heater to use less electricity while you are not occupying a room, but does not allow it to cool so much that it takes a lengthy time to warm the room when you turn it back on the comfort mode.
