ElectraMate Repairs


For a repair to your Electramate, call me any time on 07866 766364.


First of all, thanks for visiting. I'm Mike Bryant, also known as Mike the Boilerman (my main website is miketheboilerman.com). I fix interesting and unusual boilers for a living. If you book me to repair to repair your boiler it will be me that turns up, not an employee, and I make fixed-time appointments to visit so you know exactly when I’ll be arriving and you don’t have to wait in all day.  




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 its 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 later model, 'A' Class, but there are not many around and the vast majority of call I get are for the 2000 model.


If my list of common Electramate faults and their symptoms and remedies doesn't help, I'm happy to give advice to anyone wanting it via my Gledhill Repairs discussion forum (it's here) or by email. Gledhill themselves also offer telephone technical support during normal office hours but it's expensive. 60p per minute to be precise. Their technical helpline number is 0906 611 0005.


If you’d like to talk to me about a repair, call or text my mobile 07866 766364.
