So, what exactly is an immersion heater? The term actually refers to the steel element found within your water storage tank, which is essentially a bigger version of the unit inside your kettle. When your water stops getting hot the way it normally should, checking the immersion heater should be first thing to do.
There are various problems that can eventually occur with Winchester immersion heaters, even high quality ones, if they haven’t had proper service or if the initial appliance installation was handled by amateurs. In a lot of cases, it’s simply that the thermostat is faulty and needs to be replaced by a more reliable unit by No1 PHD.
In other cases that we’ve come across over the years, it is actually the immersion heater itself that has failed due to a number of potential underlying reasons. Worry not, however, as our specialist heating engineers have all of the specialist equipment available to carry out a thorough systems check and then make sure the circuits are operating the way they should going forward!
Absolutely blown away by the service we received. Took all the stress out of losing our heating and hot water. Highly recommended!

Couldn’t have asked for a faster resolution to our drainage conundrum. Nothing was too much for these guys who were brilliant throughout.

There are several reasons that make people want to keep their immersion heater in place instead of replacing it with a combi-boiler or other available unit with a similar operation. Our immersion heaters are reliable and bring many benefits that property owners enjoy.
For example, imagine that it’s the cold winter and your boiler suddenly breaks down or starts leaking. In these cases, you are going to need an emergency boiler service to ensure that your day doesn’t come to a halt.
On the other hand, if you have one of our immersion heaters in place, you can have peace of mind knowing that you still have enough hot water to shower, do the washing up and carry out other essentials tasks while you arrange for No1 PHD Winchester boiler engineers to arrive at the property.
A great way to achieve a long service life for your unit is lagging your water cylinder with a high-quality insulation jacket. This is something that we’d be happy to install for you at an affordable price that won’t break the bank. Another thing we always recommend is installing a thermostat in case your immersion heater didn’t originally come equipped with one.
The third recommendation from our Winchester immersion heater experts is checking that your immersion heater is operating off peak, which means roughly from midnight to 6AM. This is another thing that we’d be happy to set up on your behalf – just reach out to No1 PHD via one of the contact methods outlined below!
Our lines are open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, so please feel free to either call us directly on 08006906777 or fill in the simple online enquiry form found on our website!
After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.
For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
