Hi,
We had our boiler and hot water tank replaced a year ago and at the same time got dual controls and rad valves. I was always told that with a separate hot water and heating function, it was cheaper to heat water by the gas boiler rather than the electric immersion and just wondered if this was actually true?
Thanks

I had my boiler serviced recently and the guy told me the same that I should use the gas instead of the electricity.

And I always set my gas boiler to heat (only) my water during the summer, (1/2 an hour in the morning and evening does it). I think a boiler that is fired up every day will be better than one that sits unused all summer.

And I concur with above, it is cheaper to heat water by gas rather than electricity.
