Electric showers do not use hot water, they take cold water from the mains water supply. When you turn on the shower, water is passed over a heating element to deliver a shower at your preferred flow rate and temperature. You do not need a stored hot water supply for this type of shower as it works independently from your hot water system. Electric showers have come a long way since they were first introduced in the mid 70's and although some would argue that they have always been ahead of their time, advances in technology have enabled the product to be adapted to a variety of installation situations.
What Are The Advantages Of Electric Showers?
Electric showers operate through ‘on-demand’ technology, so will heat up water instantly that is, much faster than a traditional boiler. Plus it will only heat what you need or use, helping you to be a little more eco-friendly (through preserving water) and saving you money on your energy bills in the process.
Because electric showers are designed to work at maximum efficiency you also get an improved flow rate and a much stronger water pressure compared to a standard pipe design. This allows you to wash faster and feel cleaner and more refreshed when you’re finished.
Electric showers are easy and quick to fit, however it’s best to hire a professional to fit yours as there are strict regulations regarding electrical work in the UK.
