Because the remote shouldn't have to be nearby

 
 

Keeping and using a remote control right next to your heater truly defeats the purpose of the control being remote. With controls in the base unit the e series heaters allow you to keep your remote control elsewhere, in your favourite spot, whilst still being in complete control of the heater at the base unit. Complete with LED screen on the e-cubo and a 3 inch LCD screen on the e-altura, you will have control everywhere.
