Electronic wall timer for Storage heater

Recommended Posts

Hi 

I am looking for a digital timer wall switch that control my storage heater. Mainly to turn it on and off on desire time. 

I saw online there may be concern as water heater are of high watts, will need high capacity breaker etc, I have very limited knowledge on that.

My storage heater is still working fine, so will not consider replacing it to AOS as yet. 

are there any recommendation on the wall switch that i can get from?

thank you

Looking for good contractors? Click here for your request

check whether your storage heater has it's own dedicated MCCB in your switch box or not. if have and your switch box has extra space, can try to find a 20A timer and put in inline with the storage heater's MCCB so that you can configure the timer to turn on/off at the preset time(s).

Hey I was in the exact same situation just a year ago. I managed to find one on Taobao and buy it over EZBuy. You can read about it in my t-blog post here. Hope it's useful!

I believe so but I recommend you get your electrician to take a look at the specs to confirm before you go ahead to purchase. That is what I did. If it helps, my storage water heater is a Joven 35l model.
