To know more about the DIR electric infrared patio heater

How to choose my heater?

Since you can use the DIR indoors or outdoors it’s important to choose the wattage depending on the installed location. You can determine the unit you need by looking at the chart below.

What is IP65?

The IP Index is an international standard of the International Electrotechnical Commission relating to the sealing of appliances. The number 65 is thus the pairing of the indicative 6 (hermetic to the dust) and the indicative 5 (protection against the jets of water coming from all directions). The electric patio heater DIR is therefore very weatherproof and perfect for our weather conditions.

How to install the heater?

The DIR requires permanent installation on a dedicated circuit. It is fixed to the wall or ceiling, depending on the model, using the mounting brackets. In any case, it is necessary to respect the minimum clearances that you will find in the installation instructions of the device.

For a reliable and guaranteed installation, Convectair recommends consulting a master electrician. To find out about the Master Electricians recommended by Convectair, please visit the "where to buy" section.
