You can not care as much as you like, but then top posting idiots rarely
last long here

and wankers who work in computing who put everyone else's posts beneath
their sig sep (so it disappears if the post is followed up) really
shouldn't be let near anything more advanced than a wax crayon

And without the timer, it would have cost about the same.  The heater
doesn't draw 4500W when the water is already hot and no-one uses any.

Timers on HW heaters only reduce stand-by losses.  Those times the heater
would kick on simply because the tank cooled through ambient losses (unless
you take cold showers because of the timer being set wrong ;-).

Just out of curiousity, how do you get away paying only 20 UK pounds/year ?
Is this gas powered ? Or wood from the yard ?
Don't you shower or wash dishes/clothes ?
That's like 4 m^2/month. I use that in a day or two for DHW.
