Electric heating and boiler questions.
Hey folks have been living in my flat for over 3 months now.
Its getting pretty chilly so I think its time to get the heating sorted.
Its that electric heating though and I have heard some horror stories about the cost of running the thing. Its all dimplex heaters.
In the lounge and hall there is big storage heaters, I think I understand how they work but do you think it would be cheaper to just buy a plug in electric heater and use that as and when I need it?
The hot water now, it is just a big tank with three switches on the wall beside it. One is the booster which is obviously if you need extra hot water than normal. It has 30mins, 1 hr and 2hrs.
But then the other two switches I do not know about. I have just had them both on all the time.
One leads to the of the middle of bolier and the other to the bottom.
Do I need these both switched on? If I press the booster only one of the switches lights up but maybe the bulb in the switch is not working?
Anyway I can take pics if anyone needs as its quite hard to explain.
