FITTING REPLACEMENT STORAGE HEATERS:
If you prefer replacement storage heaters can be fitted to your existing restricted hours wiring circuits and your old storage heater dismantled and disposed of safely by our appointed installer teams who have been contracted by H W Electric for many years. This service is available to most areas of England and Wales. Timed appointments are arranged by our sales team, weekends included.
FITTING PROCEDURE - WHAT'S ENTAILED:
Our installer will check that there is a existing restricted hours (off peak) meter fitted and properly installed wiring circuit(s) to connect the storage heater. The old storage heater is dismantled and removed (if applicable). After carrying out a detailed assessment of the wall fabric the heater is mounted and fixed using the correct fixings. Note: A storage heater is very heavy and incorrect or unsuitable wall fixings can lead to serious injury if the heater becomes detached from the wall and falls forward. If you are considering fitting the heater yourself and you are unsure of the correct fixings to be used you are strongly advised to use our fitting service. The heater is loaded with the heat storage core bricks and then connected to your existing restricted hours wiring circuit using replacement heat resistant flex. The existing wall isolator is inspected for wear and deterioration and if there is any doubt to it’s performance this is also replaced. The off peak consumer unit controlling your storage heater(s) is visually inspected for wear and deterioration and terminals checked for security. Tests are carried out on your existing restricted hours wiring circuit(s) from the consumer unit to each heater to confirm there are no cable faults and the heater will work correctly. All packaging is removed from site and a final "hoover up" is undertaken. Before leaving, the engineer will explain in detail the operating procedure of the new storage heater and answer any questions the customer may have.
Caution: Some old usually freestanding storage heaters may contain hazardous materials such as asbestos and are only safe to dismantle and remove by a licensed waste remover. It is absolutely crucial to obtain advise if there is any doubt of the contents of a storage heater that may fall into this category. Our appointed installer cannot dismantle storage heaters that may contain hazardous materials.
