How to remove storage heaters safely
The pollutant asbestos can regularly be found in storage heaters, which were manufactured before 1984. If there is any damage or defect to the heater there is a risk that asbestos fibers are released which in turn could be inhaled causing major damage in the human body such as lung cancer or asbestosis. So please do not disassemble your storage heater by yourself as you could damage and risk your and your family’s health! We advise you to hire a specialist instead to dispose of and replace your storage heater so that asbestos fibers cannot get into the air.
Other hazardous materials that can be found in storage heaters are, for example, artificial mineral fibers (before 1989), carcinogenic PCBs (before 2000) or chromates. These materials are highly hazardous to health and environment and should, therefore, be disposed of by authorized companies only. These often dispose of storage heaters in full and don’t disassemble them wrapping them in an air-tight foil so that no harmful substances can enter the air and your home. The cost for the disposal of the storage heater is borne by the owner and averages on approx. 100 to 230 Euro per heating unit. Nonetheless not replacing storage heaters will probably cost you more in the long run.
