Signs You Need Your Immersion Fixed

Many households use immersion heaters with thermostat controls. Having a thermostat means that the immersion will heat the water to a certain level and then switch off. The idea being that the immersion can be left on, usually overnight, and will self regulate the power use. When a thermostat on an immersion stops working, the water heater will either not switch off or not switch on.

If you experience any of the  following problems, your immersion needs to be fixed by a qualified plumber:

No Hot Water 

When your immersion stops heating up the water to the normal temperature or at all, call a plumber. No hot water is a sign that the heating element inside the immersion cylinder has burnt out. Fixing an immersion element is a standard type of plumbing call out that our team respond to weekly, sometimes daily.

Loud Noises From The Immersion

Have you ever been kept awake at night by noisy, hot water pipes? You might not realise this, but any unusual noises when your immersion is on could indicate an issue. An immersion in need of fixing might make banging, hissing, or groaning noises.

Noises from broken immersion heaters are sometimes accompanied by spitting hot water taps and scalding water.  Watch out for the latter, as water that reaches 60 degrees celsius will burn skin in seconds. It is crucial to ensure that an immersion with scalding water issues is fixed asap as serious harm can be caused, especially to children. Call us right away on 085 855 6111 if you are experiencing this immersion problem.

Immersion Thermostat Not Working

Many households use immersion heaters with thermostat controls. Having a thermostat means that the immersion will heat the water to a certain level and then switch off. The idea being that the immersion can be left on, usually overnight, and will self regulate the power use. When a thermostat on an immersion stops working, the water heater will either not switch off or not switch on.

Really High Electric Bills For No Apparent Reason

An electric bill that is suddenly much higher than previous months is a clue that your immersion heater is broken. When an immersion needs to be fixed, it can become less efficient and heating water. When this happens, the immersion will suck up more power in an attempt to heat the water in the tank.
