Replacing an immersion heater could be a plumber’s job or may be an electrician’s job.
About Immersion Heaters
Electrical or Plumbing? The building trade has never been sure! One thing is for sure though, Euro-Lec (Southern) Ltd are able to carry out the job. If you’re immersion elements on your immersion heater go, the chances are that the whole house will be in darkness as the RCD will trip taking out all the circuits.
Immersion heaters expand and contract with the heat and now and again the protective covering gives way allowing a little water in. Since water and electricity don’t mix, a short circuit occurs, then the lights go out. It’s then time to call Euro-Lec. Our electrician/plumber will quickly trace the fault to identify the length of the element required and replace it.
Signs That your Immersion Heater Needs Replacing
Sometimes your water just takes forever to heat up and therefore it could be time to replace your immersion heater as it could be scaled up.
