How does electric storage heating work?
During the daytime, no power is running to your heater, so your fused spur or switch mounted on the wall must be turned to the on position the day before. Your storage heater is designed to have power around 9-10 pm, 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 morning hours, and 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 essential to turn down the output. If you do not, most of the heat will escape at night. Storage heaters are not as expensive to run as typical panel heaters as they only use electricity at night, which is cheaper than during the day.
If you have just moved into a property and are not used to storage heaters, then it is essential 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 usually 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. Ensure the output is turned down and not left up full, or most of the heat will come out at night.
