I think I would like a little more information before I can give a resonable answer. Where did he disconnect these heaters at the heater, in a wall thermostat or in the panel?
That is the first thing we should find out before going to far into this. Next thing what kind of electrician did you have, was the work he did inspected?

Another question to ask is : Are all of the breaker positions in your main panel filled? If so, a lot of manufacturers have multiple slim line breakers that double your capacity.

I'd just like to say that the phrase "derelict electrician" makes me chuckle.
