Hello, my name is***** be patient whilst awaiting any responses as I'm not constantly available.

Anything is possible, but in trying to do so it will cost you more than purchasing one that is already configured for the fuel that you wish to use

Customer:

So I have an electric aga, can i run it sensibly on cheap night rate electricity?

George-Allsorts :

Can you supply me with the model number of the unit please as there are many models in the Aga range

Customer:

minute pls.

Customer:

no obvious model number. any idea where i might find a number? unit has 4 ovens, 2x2 each flank, with central section composed of what i take to be controls.

Customer:

this one even closer, possibly identical

George-Allsorts :

I would need the model to definitively say yes or no...

There are two versions of the electric Aga... You need to have the correct version to use 30amp night Storage... Here is some information about it...

Customer:






Aga STANDARD 2 or 4 oven.

Made 1941- 1972 Model C, CB (cooker boiler) and 4 oven model E.



Customer:

best guess, is 4 oven model e. and its certainly electric.

George-Allsorts :

The version you have mentioned does not have the night storage facility... This facility is available only in modern models...

The cost of a new night storage Aga is around £18,500 installed

Customer:

i think i've heard enough ty!
