Due to the favourable energy balance, heat pumps are being used more often in residential construction. These devices are not only used for heating, however, but also for the cooling of buildings. The Gira room temperature controller with clock offers a special cooling program in addition to the previously integrated heating programs.
Switching between heating/cooling is done through an additional input, which analyses the heat pump's 230 V signal.
Self-explanatory user guidance facilitates the operation of the Gira room temperature controller with clock and cooling program. Four different temperature levels can be defined:
- a comfort temperature for presence,
- a reduced temperature for the night,
- an anti-freeze temperature for times of extended absences,
- a separate program for the cooling function.
The changeover to 'heating' or 'cooling' operating mode occurs automatically via a separate input. In addition, the device has self-teaching heating optimisation.
