To know more about the Opéra 17

For perceptible heating

Available in wattages of 500 to 2000W, the Opera 17 heats while creating the sensation of soothing warmth, like the effect of the sun’s rays. Its soft enveloping warmth is diffused throughout the room. A choice you won’t regret.

Radiant exteriors

The exteriors of our radiant heaters are designed to diffuse heat in the best way possible. The Opera 17 therefore features a honeycombed exterior, enabling the heating element to better diffuse heat throughout the room. Modern in design, the exterior contains an absence detector, a very useful tool for economizing energy.

Its precision

Thanks to the Opera 17’s electronic back-lit thermostat, which is ultraprecise to 1/10°C, and its thermal sensor, located 6 in. from the floor to detect the coldest air, you will enjoy in a stable, precise and consistent environment.

Smart functions

The Opera 17 is endowed with many smart functions, such as an absence detector, which gradually and economically lowers heating when it no longer detects human activity in the room.

The open-window function, another smart function, stops the heater as soon as it perceives a sudden draft of cold air, to avoid any wasted energy.

Finally, the Opera 17 features a smart thermostat with many programmable functions, for better comfort and energy economies.
