Do I need to 'hire a local electrician' who specialises in electric hot water heaters?

Opting for an electric hot water heater is a great way to improve energy efficiency in your home. Unlike gas boilers, electric hot water heaters don’t store hot water for later use. Instead, the system only heats water when you turn on a tap or the shower. That means less wastage, and less wear and tear on your heating system.

Whether you already have an electric hot water heating system or you’d like to have one installed, you will need to enlist the services of a specialist electrician. This is because a special connection is required from the water heater to each tap, and too high or low a voltage can lead to system damage or health and safety concerns.
