Features and Benefits
Hot water is an essential part of everyday life and to have a precise temperature control and delivery on demand can be crucial. Immersion heaters are electric heating elements that are found in water cylinders to heat water. These elements perform like a kettle to heat the surrounding water in the cylinder. One key advantage of an immersion heater element within your heating system is that if the boiler fails, you should still be able to get hot water. The element usually has its own power supply which means that it can be turned on and off when needed so that water is not constantly being heated unnecessarily.
