Heavy bastards, you will need to get rid of the old bricks.  Not difficult just don't mix up the peak and off peak circuits

Used old storage heater bricks as the base for my outdoor pizza oven, so you can sell them. Think I paid 3 quid each iirc from a guy clearing an older house.

Have you seen @King Penda's attempt to roast a chicken? There would be no survivors if he tried pizza

I would guess it’s the separate switch that goes to it might be Possible to reuse the wires unless your saying there’s two lots of connections in the heater

Everything will be re-usable but yes I suppose you could say two lots of connections

You just need to make sure that is connected to the night-time element that heats the bricks or it's all pointless xD (They normally have a day time boost function)

It's one of those things that will be clear when you're looking at it, take the electrical connection cover off the old one and you'll see what I mean

I would personally just get a fan-assisted electric heater. About £40 on Amazon, the fan makes a huge difference in pushing the heat around. I use one to heat my office, takes about an hour in the morning then it's fine.

Or if you're okay with rewiring plugs etc you could wire up one of those wall mounted ones. I probably wouldn't risk it though, unless you know 100% what you're doing, for obvious reasons......... :D
