First of all, thanks for visiting.
I'm Mike Bryant, also known as Mike the Boilerman. (My main website is
I've built this site specifically to help owners of
Gledhill ElectraMate thermal stores and/or their plumbers identify faults
and fix them.
Gledhill ElectraMates are 'thermal stores'. They work in
a significantly different way from ordinary hot water cylinders and
water heaters. The ElectraMate is filled with water that never changes.
This water is heated overnight using low-cost night-rate electricity and
is then pumped around conventional central heating radiators during the
day to give 'normal' central heating, but powered by electricity.
The stored hot water in the ElectraMate is also used to heat mains
pressure water on it's way to the hot taps, giving mains pressure hot
water for high performance showers and rapid bath filling.
Unlike the PulsaCoils, BoilerMates etc, there is only one model of
ElectraMate widely installed at the moment - the ElectraMate 2000. There
is a new model, the ElectraMate 'A' Class, but I have yet to encounter
one so I have only written a page for the electraMate
2000 for now.
