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.

No hot water in PulsaCoil Coil boiler

The water is not heating overnight in my boiler (Gledhill PulsaCoil boiler) which runs on Economy 7. However if I switch on the 1 hour booster it does give me hot water. During the night when the timer switch should come on and tell the boiler to heat the water it doesn’t look like it is switching on to heat the water and neither does the amber light illuminate on the switch box. The switch is a Horstmann Economy 7 quartz.

Hot Water Tank Not Heating

My hot water tank has stopped heating and it is also affecting the storage heaters in my living room. I am on economy seven but I get no hot water at any point in the day. The heater has only been in situe for a couple of months but I think it may have been installed wrong as the hot water works for about two weeks then is repaired then stops after two weeks and has since it was fitted. Each time it has been 'fixed' the electrics are messed with - (sorry, I have no idea if any technical terms!) So I think it could be a problem with the thermostat or just the wiring as when the tank is 'fixed' the water comes out scorching hot then as the days go by it gets colder until it is no longer warm and I have no hot water.
