Forum O. G.
The house over there has a bottled gas cooker and an oil-fired range, which will also heat the water in the winter, plus a two-level immersion for the warmer months. Swapping to electric water heating had little effect on the daily total, surprisingly.Ahhh if only I only used 7kwh hours a day .... that would be nice. I'm all electric. I used to have calor gas central heating but I ripped all that out, I'm an ex tanker man, I wont have gas in the house. So I replaced all that with an all electric boiler, changing the system to fully pumped for not only the central heating, but hot water as well as that was convection/gravity with the gas boiler. Even so the immersion gets used mostly for hot water. I do my own plumbing and you can buy the control system as a complete bundle, including the three position valve. I'm not a great fan of central heating to be honest which is probably good as the electric boiler climbs up to 9 kw.
