We at Alto Electrical have been tinkering around and came up with something pretty handy – especially if you’re curious (or a bit worried) about what’s sitting in your living room or workspace.
You know those old storage heaters?
Well, some of them might have asbestos in them, and that’s not great news for anyone.
But, don’t fret. We’ve sorted out a way to make checking this a breeze.
Way back when, asbestos was the go-to for insulating storage heaters. Times have changed, and now we know it’s not the safest option out there.
So, we rolled up our sleeves and put together a search tool that tells you if your storage heater is one of the old-school ones that might have asbestos.
To do this we took the HSE’s list, that was very difficult to use, and spent [a long time] turning it into actual full words and individual models, rather than ranges.
We’ve got a list of all the big names, and probably some you’ve never heard of.
Next up, find the model number of your heater. It’s usually on a plate somewhere on the heater.
Our tool will then tell you if there’s any chance your heater’s got asbestos or if it’s in the clear.
Well, knowing is half the battle, isn’t it? If there’s a chance of asbestos, it’s something you will want to be aware of when replacing the old relics.
Plus, it saves you the hassle of digging through manuals or waiting on hold with customer service.
We love a good old building. The older, the better. That’s our bread and butter at Alto Electrical, sorting out the electrics in places that have seen a century or two.
When you live in Lincolnshire, on the Border of Rutland, you work on a lot of Old houses!
This little tool of ours is just one of the ways we try to look after these grand old structures and the people who live and work in them.
Our asbestos checker for storage heaters is just a quick and easy tool that could give you a bit of peace of mind.
If you are considering removing your Storage heaters, give us a Call and we will be happy to assist you!
Plus, it’s a good excuse to have a natter with us about any electrical concerns you might have – heritage building or not.
