DIGITAL STORAGE HEATER WIFI ECOMBI PLUS

NOTHING BUT ADVANTAGES WITH ECOMBI PLUS

SIGNIFICANT SAVINGS WITH ECOMBI AUTOMÁTICO

This is the very essence of the ECOMBI System.  This operating mode will enable ECOMBI to make automatic, daily corrections to the energy charge. The charge will always occur during the cheaper electricity tariff period, the off-peak time.

Why pay more if I am going to need less?

Ecombi’s automatic charge management allows the consumer to fix a temperature set point in order to obtain a level of comfort which meets his/her needs, with the minimum energy consumption possible.
ECOMBI will only load the energy actually needed, thanks to its new electronic management module, the IEM (Integral Energy Manager) management module.

IEM assesses the energy consumed by the equipment during the day, as well as the temperature recordings made, and determines an automatic control of the energy charge, adjusting it to the established need for comfort.

With the innovative ECOMBI PLUS System, we can reduce energy consumption by up to 35% compared to other manual storage heaters.

DAILY AND WEEKLY PROGRAMMING

The new Ecombi Plus storage heater is totally programmable. It is possible to establish a customized programming by hours and days, setting different temperatures for each.

You can program your ECOMBI System to operate on the days of the week you want. This option is extremely useful when employed at weekends-only home or in offices, where there are days of the week where it does not need to operate.

3 OPERATING MODES

With the Ecombi Plus users can choose from three operating modes:

AUTO – This operating mode is the key for comfort and savings with Ecombi Plus. It is possible to program the storage heater by hours and days of the week, establishing one of three temperature levels: Comfort, Eco and Frost Protection. In light of the programming and temperature set points established at any time, Ecombi Plus will automatically regulate the daily charge to establish with precision the amount of charge for the next day.

MANUAL – The storage heater will maintain at all times the temperature set point established on a 24/7 basis. Always the same temperature. In this way, Ecombi will self- regulate the automatic charge daily, while bearing in mind that there is a single temperature set point fixed for the whole day.

OFF – The storage heater is switched off. It will just show the time on the display panel.

3 TEMPERATURE LEVELS

Ecombi Plus comes with 3 temperature levels already pre-configured in the factory: Comfort at 21ºC, Eco at 18ºC and Frost Protection at 3ºC. They may be altered, allowing us to fix, at each level, the set points which reflect our needs.

“ADAPTIVE START” FUNCTION: ADJUSTABLE START

This function guarantees us the maximum comfort at the time established during the programming. If we ask for a temperature set point at a particular time, this function enables the storage heater to come into action the necessary time beforehand to provide the temperature you want at the desired time.

OPEN WINDOW FUNCTION

This new function will disconnect the compensation heater element for 30 minutes, before it is reconnected later at the temperature level and set point established at that time. When the open window function is activated, the storage heater will continue to operate and release heat but, if there is a sudden fall in temperature owing to ventilation in the room or if a window has been incorrectly closed, it guarantees that the compensation heater element will not operate for 30 minutes in order to avoid unnecessary energy consumption.

INDIVIDUAL CONTROL. BUILT-IN TIMER SWITCH

ECOMBI equipment has an individual thermostat to ensure a continual and independent management of the heating needs of the room where it is installed.

Neither external charge switchboards to unite the combined installation of various pieces of Ecombi equipment nor additional timing management systems are needed. Ecombi Plus has a built-in timer switch, so there is no need to install one in the electric panel. All this is included in each ECOMBI PLUS.

POSSIBILITY OF MANAGING VARIOUS CHARGE PERIODS

ECOMBI allows the programming of various charge periods within the same 24 hour period. Each piece of equipment has its own digital timer switch to insert the cheaper electricity tariff periods available.

As a default feature, Ecombi Plus leaves the factory sale configured with the current charge period equivalent to the off-peak time between 10 p.m. and noon, which reflects the current standard electricity tariffs with 14 hours of time discrimination. However, it is possible to establish up to 2 charge periods within the same 24 hours, provided they charge all the hours of the Ecombi installed (14 hours divided into 2 sections for the 14-hour Ecombi Plus or 8 hours divided into 2 sections for the 8-hour Ecombi Plus).

The system is also prepared for direct connection with digital meters, so that the electrical supplier can program directly the management of the system’s energy charge.

CONTROL SYSTEM FOR ACCESS AND REMOTE CONTROL VIA WIFI

The G Control system has been incorporated in the new electronics, allowing us to access the control and management of the storage heaters from any place and at all times via wifi.

Ecombi Plus storage heaters can be linked with a “G Control Hub” switchboard and the user can access the equipment via a free application on his/her mobile telephone, tablet or PC. This new function gives a considerable advantage to all consumers who demand control over their heating or those who have second homes and need a minimum time beforehand to charge the storage heater. In this way, the second home will be at the required level of comfort when they arrive or programming fixed earlier may be cancelled, if required.

NEW LCD SCREEN

The new LCD screen included in Ecombi Plus gives the consumer a great deal of relevant information and data about the configuration and status of the storage heater at all times.
It is possible to view the configured operating mode, the programming established, the temperature level for each time section, if the connection with the G Control switchboard is active for management via wifi, if the window open function is operating, if the compensation heater element is operating and the set point temperature.

Another major novelty in the display of Ecombi Plus is the ability to see at all times the current level of charge of the storage heater.

ECOMBI, SAFE AND SUSTAINABLE, COMPLIES WITH THE REQUISITES OF THE EUROPEAN ECO-DESIGN ERP LEGISLATION

ECOMBI PLUS is the first storage heater on the market that has been designed and complies with the current ErP Eco-Design legislation.

The ECOMBI system does not need maintenance. It does not have moveable parts that can break or deteriorate owing to wear and tear. Quick and easy installation, both in new constructions and homes that are already inhabited, as it does not require any sort of construction or modification. It can be installed within a single day.

Safety is always one of the key factors in the choice of electric heating. These storage heaters are completely safe.

They do not need fuel storage or hydraulic circuits to allow them to work, so the possibility of seepage is avoided.

The Ecombi System provides a safe environment:

  • It does not consume oxygen or emit CO2.
  • It does not produce gases or fumes.
  • It does not emit direct contamination to the environment while it operates.

It can be used with renewable energy originating from natural resources such as the sun or wind.

The most efficient storage heater on the market, which combines comfort, savings and control over heating
