Electric Shower

For the majority of us, a shower is one of the most important things we own. It’s an essential part of our daily routine, whether it be when you first wake up, or when you get back from a tough day at work. With the majority of bathrooms you expect to see a shower fitted as standard, which is why it’s important you choose the right one.

A lot of us would be completely lost without a shower. It’s a situation we just can’t imagine. What would you do if you had an important meeting but there ended up being a problem with your hot water, meaning that the shower is unusable. That isn’t the case if you choose to use an electric shower.

An electric shower is designed to run completely independent from your main hot water system, regardless of what it is. As they are one of the most popular showers out there, they have been extensively developed over the years. They have become much more versatile for our everyday needs.

It isn’t any wonder why almost half of brand new showers are electric showers. The majority of people that get them installed don’t understand how they didn’t use one before.


One of the most overlooked benefits of an electric shower is that they can easily be fitted in pretty much any property that has an electricity supply. Even if you have an old water system, an electric shower is still able to function.

An electric shower is connected to the cold water supply, and it is able to heat this water in an instant. If you want to live in a more economical home, then this can be a great choice, as you aren’t wasting anywhere near as much water. It is important to bear in mind that heating the water does require energy, not making it one of the most economical processes available.

Do you live in a household where water is in use a lot of the time? Are you fed up of jumping in the shower and having to endure an ice cold torture? As electric shower instantly heat the water on demand, there isn’t a chance that your hot water will run out. With only a touch a button, you can have instant hot water.

If there is a lot of people that use a single shower in your property, you can find that you are waiting for a while, and you then find yourself having only cold water to shower in. Again, electric showers don’t suffer from this problem, so don’t worry about cold showers anymore regardless of if you’re at the back of the queue or not.

Other showers are often not suitable for people that have a busy lifestyle. If you have very little time to have a scrub in the shower, then it’s essential you have access to warm water instantly. With other showers, you can find that you have to wait around until it’s a suitable temperature that you can shower in.

If you chose to have an electric shower in your homes, then you no longer have to waste your time waiting for a hot water tank. Simply press a button, find your ideal temperature and then jump in.



With electric showers being one of the most popular choices on the market, they are available in a wide variety of styles. No longer do you have to have a simple white box on the wall of your bathroom.

You have a wide choice, ranging from the classic white, glossy black or even a brighter chrome colour. If you are aiming to have a bathroom that follows a contemporary design, then the range in styles can be what you are looking for. There will definitely be a style here that suits you.

The majority of modern electric showers come available with different accessories which are able to complement your bathroom aesthetic. The bathroom is your personal space, so spend the time to make sure that everything you decide will create a space you will enjoy spending time in.


With electric showers, they come available in wide range of different kilowatt ratings. This is generally anywhere between 8 kilowatts or 11 kilowatts.

An electric shower that runs on a higher kilowatt rating will provide a much better performance, but will end up costing more to run, as it is using much more energy. If you are aiming to have a more economical home, then you will save a lot of normally wasted water, but you are still using electricity, so keep that in mind.

If you choose to have a high kilowatt rating, the heating element inside of the shower is more powerful. The flow of water becomes even more powerful, as well as being able to heat up just that bit more faster.

If you’re a person that likes a powerful shower to spruce them up in the morning, then a high kilowatt is ideal for you. If you much rather prefer a more relaxed approach, then a lower kilowatt will be more suited.
