Can baseboard heaters be controlled by the 4iE?
Yes, the 4iE series thermostats are uniquely designed to control Electric Radiant Heating, including baseboard applications.
They have been specially engineered to provide energy monitoring in both wattage and cost to ensure optimum power usage. The Wi-Fi capability allows your 4iE to program itself using your smartphone location and vary your settings by zone. Control and monitor your Baseboard heaters this way.
To have your 4iE thermostat function properly with baseboard applications, you will have to do a few minor adjustments in the 4iE’s settings menu.
Step 1: Set the heating preference to read air.
Menu > settings > heating preference > control air/floor > select air > accept
Step 2: Change the PID period to 10 minutes.
Menu > settings > advanced settings > heater settings > heating limits > user defined > PID period > 10 mins > accept
NOTE: While the thermostat is dual voltage, it is important to be aware of the wattage maximums.
