How does electric storage heating work?
During the daytime there is no power running to your heater so it is important that your fused spur or switch mounted on the wall is turned to the on position the day before, your storage heater is designed to have power to it at around 9-10pm depending on your electric tariff and area, once there is power to the heater then it will heat the elements inside your heater which in turn heats the ceramic bricks inside, the power will stop going to your heater in the early hours of the morning, the heat you get from your storage heater the next day will be from the bricks inside the heater that have stored the heat overnight, it is important to turn down the output as if you do not then most of the heat will escape out during the night, storage heaters are not as expensive to run as normal panel heaters as they only use electricity at night which is cheaper than electricity during the day.
If you have just moved into a property and are not used to storage heaters then it is important to check the following points before you call out someone to repair.
1. Ensure that the fused spur or switch is in the on position the night before ( this is normally a wall mounted switch fitted to the wall to either side of the heater, it is the same size as a light switch )
2. Make sure the input on your heater is turned up to the desired temperature.
3. Make sure the output is turned down and not left up full or most of the heat will come out during the night.
