Afternoon all

I have STORAD heaters in my new flat. Problem is now its cold, I dont really understand how to use them. I have an off peak and a normal switch for them, and a knob for storage (lol) and a knob for convection.

So what do i switch on or off overnight to allow me to store heat overnight and release it during the day? Google has been about as helpful as my landlord (not very)

Rep for helpful answers!

Switch on overnight. Do you have Economy 7 tariff? These type of heaters are only economical if you do have E&, otherwise I don't see the point. E7 is between 1.30am to 8.30 am, but it will change to 12.30am to 7.30am from Saturday.

you leave it on all the time - set your input to what you want - 7/8

they should be set to load up while you are on off peak then set your output for whats best for you -

if you are out at work all day - set output to 3 / 4 then when you come in at night you can turn it up so its warmer

we have heatserve which is off peak prices 3 times in 24 hours so it is slightly different than overnight off peak

does take getting used to especially after having gas c/h - but i prefer storage heaters now

i personally dont think it costs anymore than gas c/h

This is exactly what we do. There is no need to switch off if you have E7, as it will switch itself off.

Yes. The thermostat and E7 will control the heater. Keep the tempature dial low if you are out all day, then you can turn it up in the evening when you need it.
