I have a Direct Hot Water cylinder with 2 immersion heaters, one positioned through the side at the bottom and one positioned two thirds towards the top.
QUESTION - Which immersion should I have swithed on for general daily hot water. neither are connected to Economy 7.
Hi, even though you dont have Economy7 you can still use cheap rate electricity set a timer on the lower element and set it to come on between 12 and 6am to give you a full tank of hot water if your tank is well lagged it will stay hot for the day, just make sure that the time clock you fit can carry a 13A load.
