Do I need a Thermofilm controller?

The majority of the Thermofilm heater range is supplied with a standard 10amp lead and plug, which you can simply “plug and go”, without the need for an electrician.
 
NB: The exceptions are the HEATSTRIP Classic THH3200A and HEATSTRIP Max THX3600 as these both units require hard wiring.  Therefore, a 15amp flex lead ONLY is supplied with these products.
 
Products such as the CP and Euro convective panel heaters and some Heat n’ Grow propagation trays have a full thermostat control system built-in; therefore no additional control is required.  

However, products such as the Heatstrip heaters, Bliss and Heatstar radiant panels do not have thermostat or timers as standard. These can be controlled by the simple on/function of a power point; hard-wiring them to a basic on/off switch or connecting them to a controller to provide additional features and functions.

We would recommend the use of a controller to provide greater flexibility for your heating system; ensure optimum performance and reduce running costs.

The Thermofilm controller range consists of five products designed to complement your heater in an indoor or outdoor application.  The below table provides general selection guidelines for which controller is most appropriate for the situation.
