Best use of night storage heaters

Storage heaters offer a means of saving money to those householders with an off peak tariff by using the cheaper electricity available at night time. The tips set out below provide guidance on the steps to take to make the best use of your night storage heaters:

  • In the morning, as soon as you get up, turn the INPUT setting to low and the OUTPUT setting to 3-4;
  • When leaving the house for the day (or perhaps to take the children to school) turn OUTPUT to 2 for the rest of the day;
  • When returning, say, at 4pm, turn it up to 4 or 5 for the evening;
  • You can adjust it depending on the weather expected the next day.
