Danfoss radiator thermostats help people to obtain comfort in their homes. By maintaining constant desired room temperatures, individually or room by room, and by helping to reduce energy consumption.
They can save approximately 20% compared to a manually operated valve due to utilization of free heat gains and constant room temperature.
Robustly built and designed to meet the rigors of domestic life, we offer an extensive range of radiator thermostats that increase comfort and save energy.
Features and benefits
Ensures optimal comfort at home, room by room.
The world’s only radiator thermostat with gas-filled sensor: One of the secrets of the radiator thermostat’s service life of over 20 years is the gas charged, precision-manufactured sensors. Unlike other fillings, gas maintains a high regulating capacity and reactivity.

Control of the space temperature at a comfortable level is easily accomplished by adjusting the dial clockwise or counterclockwise.
The dial has a numbered scale of 1 to 5 corresponding to temperatures of approximately 57°F to 79°F (14°C to 26°C).
Should the space be unoccupied for an extended period, the dial can be set to the star symbol (*) for freeze protection (50°F or 9°C) to save energy.
Mounting / Placement
The operator or sensing element must not be:
- in a drafty location
- installed above a heat source
The correct orientation direction is dependent upon the selected operator type. See the mounting guide visual below for reference.
There are a couple of reasons for overheating depending upon which system you have:
For One or Two-pipe systems:
- Ensure operator is not in a cold or drafty spot
- Check on dial adjustment knob as setting could be set too high
- Add a vacuum breaker which allows steam supply to cycle properly
For Hot Water systems:
- Check operator installation as it may not be seated properly
For 'under heating' issues:
- Ensure radiator is not blocked by furniture, heavy curtains, etc.
- Ensure operator is not in a 'hot' spot or wrong sensor location for that product selection.
