In our rental home, we have a day/night timer which means that our hot water tank is being heated up overnight during the hours of 10.30pm and 6.30am, taking advantage of tariff bleu night rate with Seolis, which makes the cost of heating the tank financially viable. We have hot water available throughout the day without the worry of heating it throughout the day.
You might want to check your electricity bill to see if a cheaper night rate is applied. If not, please do enquire with your service provider. If you are taking advantage of a cheaper night rate, is your water tank taking advantage too? You will need a contacteur jour/nuit or day/night switch and this is located at the fuseboard. The diagram below will help you determine if you have this.
If you have not got this switch, you might like to give us a call and start saving a few euros on your electricity bill!
