Keeping this in consideration, what temperature should a immersion heater be set at?
One may also ask, should I keep my immersion heater on all the time? It's better to leave the hot water heater on all the time, rather than turning it on and off. But in fact, you really don't need to be heating your water all the time. Your immersion heater or boiler will heat up hot water which is stored in a tank.
Subsequently, question is, are immersion heaters expensive to run?
Heating water using electricity is more expensive than heating water with gas. A typical immersion heater uses three kilowatts of electricity an hour, so it will cost the average house about 50p an hour to run.
Can you leave immersion heater on?
It's best to leave your immersion heater on 24 hours a day. Myth or Truth? MYTH. It's always best to place the water heating on a timer, as the energy lost from a hot water tank depends on the temperature difference between the surface of the tank and its surroundings.
