For most of us, having a shower is an essential part of our daily routine. Whether you prefer a shower first thing in the morning to wake you up; or when you return home from work to wash the day away; or last thing at night before bed to wind down, it’s hard to imagine life without our shower, that in fact sometimes we take them for granted.
Do you know what you would do, for example, if your boiler failed, or there was a problem with your hot water and you couldn’t use your shower? One solution is the electric shower, which is designed to run independently from your hot water system.
Electric showers have come a long way since they were first developed, and their increase in popularity is thanks to a more versatile and evolved product. Today, around half of all new showers bought in the UK are electric showers. Read on to find out why we love electric showers…
Electric Showers can be Fitted in Almost Any Household:
One of the obvious benefits to electric showers is that they can be fitted in any household with an electricity supply, regardless of the hot water system. Electric showers are connected to the cold mains fed water supply and heat this water instantly on demand. For this reason, electric showers can be an economical choice as there will be no hot water wasted, but bear in mind that it does take energy to heat the water so taking long showers will not be economical.
Electric Showers are Great for Busy Households:
Electric showers heat water instantly and on demand, so there is no chance that the hot water supply will run out. Hot water will always be available at the touch of a button. If you live in a busy household where there’s usually a queue for the shower in the morning, with an electric shower you won’t have to worry about the being the last in and having a cold shower! You can also say goodbye to waiting around for the hot water tank to refill with an electric shower.
Styles to Suit Your Bathroom:
Electric showers have come a long way since merely being white boxes on the wall. Electric showers now come in a range of styles and designs, from classic white, to gloss black and even satin chrome. Accessories are available in stylish chrome to complement any bathroom design.
Available in Different Power Ratings to Suit Your Needs:
Electric showers are available in a range of different kilowatt ratings, usually from 8.5kW to 10.5kW. A higher kilowatt rating will give a better performance shower, but will obviously cost more to run as it will take more energy to run. The higher the kilowatt rating, the more powerful the heating element is inside the shower, and therefore the more powerful the flow of water.
