Immersion Heater Repair
We also specialise in Immersion Heater and Electric Shower Replacement. Problems with water temperature are often an indication of a faulty immersion heater Faults to immersion heaters are often caused by hard water (lime scale) build up within the tank. This eats away at the copper element and causes it to short circuit or sometimes just not heat up. The element is encased inside the tank of water and requires a skilled, experienced workman to replace it. The water has to be drained away before the element can be removed. Great care has to be taken not to cause any leaks or air locks on refilling the tank. A fixed price on arrival can be arranged with the engineer, after his initial inspection and verification of the faulty element. Other faults include the power failure to the switch or element which can be carried out on our hourly rate.
Electric showers work by instantly heating water. Cold, mains pressure water is fed into the unit an passes over a heating element inside a chamber. The power rating of this element will determine the amount of water that can be heated. As well as a model name, many electric shower manufacturers will include the power rating of the shower in the description, which will be given in kilowatts. Showers with a higher kilowatt rating will be able to heat more water in a given time, so a higher figure gives a better flow rate. Very early models had ratings less than 6kw so the spray that they produced was very fine with a low water flow rate, but over the years kilowatt ratings have steadily increased with some current models rated over 10kw.
