How do I adjust the temperature on my immersion heater?
Keeping this in consideration, what temperature should a immersion heater be set at?
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.
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.
