What You can expect
Before you call us
Before contacting Excel Electricians for assistance with your Creda heater, there are a few steps you can take to troubleshoot the issue.
Although some of these steps may seem obvious, they have proven to be effective in restoring heat and avoiding unnecessary service calls for many of our clients. By following these steps, you may be able to resolve the issue yourself and save money
If you have recently moved into your current home and your storage heaters were already installed, make sure the electrical supply leading to them is connected properly. This simple step can often resolve issues with heating and prevent the need for a service call.
Are the two switches connected to the heaters turned on? This is yet another obvious and simple step which is often overlooked. Many people forget to turn them on after swicthing their heaters off in the summer.
It's always a good idea to make sure your consumer unit, also known as a fuse box hasn't tripped, which may have resulted in the power supplying your heaters being switched off.
If your Creda storage heater is still not working after completing these steps, you will likely need the assistance of a professional electrician. At Excel Electrician, our team of experts is fully qualified and ready to help you with any issues you may be experiencing with your heaters. Call us today for an estimate on 07947 194 448.
Last Chance Saloon: Reset your Creda heater
Before calling us, it's worth checking to see if your storage heater simply needs to be reset. If it has been unused for an extended period, resetting it may be all that's needed to get it working properly again.
Resetting your storage heater is a simple process, you can do it yourself in just a few minutes.
We've created a video tutorial to guide you through the process step-by-step and ensure you do it safely. Don't panic, it's easy!
Creda Storage heater common problems
This could be caused by thermal expansion (which happens when there is a change of temperature) when the heater comes on at the scheduled time. It could also be due to a faulty fan which is catching on its casing and the part may need replacing. It's hard to say without investigating further. In doubt just give us a call.
Very often this issue boils down (excuse the pun) to your heater's thermostat. Your fan may be switched on while the thermostat is set below the actual temperature.
Simply adjust the thermostat to a higher temperature and wait for the heating element to warm up. After a few minutes, you should start feeling the heat.
If your Creda storage heaters are brand new it is perfectly normal to notice a strange smell when they are first switched on. The combination of heat with brand new material will result in an usual smell which will disappear over time.
Alternatively, if your heaters have been switched off for some time they may have accumulated a certain amount of dust and particles which may result in a funny smell when you turn your heaters back on.
What some of our clients say
These guys are the best! Super helpful, knowledgeable, and honest! I had a problem with my storage heater and instead of coming out and charging me to just reset the thermostat, Yassin walked me through it over video chat which saved me a house visit fee. I’ve never encountered a business so willing to help! Will definitely be giving them a call for any other storage heater needs in the future
J “Hodor” Suth - Google Local Guide
Incredibly impressed with the level of service provided. Yassin was exceptional: professional, friendly and responded to my emergency so timely. Very grateful to have had the help and would highly recommend.
