The on and off disconnection switches are currently on the factory default settings, ie both on "On" (cf section 2.2 of the installation manual).
If I put the Off peak selector on "off" (Fig.2):
- will I save on my electricity bill? (this is my primary concern)
- will I have enough hot water for the whole day, knowing that we do 2 manual dish washings and have 2 showers a day (in the evening)? The hottest water we currently have is 50°C.
- in winter, will I have heating during the day? (my off peak hours are from 11pm to 7pm)

Thanks in advance for your help.

The Electramate is actually for eco 10 supply not like your use them, with eco 7. This will make your boiler about 40% more efficient, regarding the night storage set up on the PCB.( course it is heating mostly / 90%/ on low rate electric, especially in summer where you do only use hot water). In the winter with also the heating on demand, you will struggle with this eco 7 setting in terms of heating and hot water supply. The EM Boiler also should stay on all times then ( with eco 10 ).
