    As part of a conversion from a town house to a kind of HMO I have been asked to quote for all electric heating + electric showers (5). Qualifies for ‘comfy heat tariff’.

    How would you add more wires to an RV trailer for an electric water heater?

    So, this is my situation, and I'm just wondering what a real electrician would do. I don't have any money right now and can't call anyone, so I'm just living without hot water and using the RV campground's bath house. My propane water heater broke, and I didn't like using propane anyway, so I...

    Living in an RV, interested in solar panels and electric water heater

    Hello, I'm here to ask a few questions about how an electrician might do something. I might or might not learn to do things myself, depending on how much free time I have in the future. I'm living full time in an RV and reading a book about wiring from Lowe's Hardware. I just noticed this forum...

    Infrared heater tripping RCD on high setting

    I’ve just installed an infrared heater for my conservatory. It’s plugged into a socket. The heater is happily running on the second heat setting (1600W) but when I turn it up to the high setting (2400W) after a while it trips the breaker. Any suggestions on how to solve this please?

    Converting Tube Heater Socket into Mains Socket

    We have a working tube heater in a cupboard which we do not use. We would like to put a tumble dryer in the cupboard but there is no mains socket, as the tube heater is wired directly into mains, and controlled by a fused switch on the wall. Is it okay to simply swap the tube heater...

    Advice on mystery old storage heater

    Hi everyone, we have in our rented flat a quite old storage heater. Up to now we only used it when required without using the "storage" feature, as we are unable to understand how the input/output controls work. It does definitely work when we turn the switch on, but it seem we cannot regulate...

    Domestic Tankless water heater upgrade

    Hi, everyone. I have a shower room that currently has hot water provided by a 7kw tankless water heater.

    Was called to a job by a reasonably local plumber this morning who was re instating a new 3kW immersion heater in a house. Since the immersion was ripped out 10 years ago the house has been rewired and no circuit remains for the immersion as there was not one in at the time of the rewire. Never...
