Just a quick one! I believe this time delay switch should work for my old panel heater (1.25kwh) because it handles loads up to 16A. Can anyone confirm this for me? I had someone tell me I needed a fused spur switch but others tell me I don't.

FYI: the aim is to ensure the panel heater turns off automatically after 15 mins to stop guests leaving it on all day and all night.

Thanks guys.
 
you should fit a 13A fused connection (FCU) preferably D/P. this protects the cable after the FCU as it is musy likely not more than 1.5mm (max. 19A). your RFC ( if it's on a RFC) will be protected with a 32A MCB. also you have convenient local isolation.

To be clear, you’re saying I could use that particular switch but it’s preferable to have fused spur?
