How do they work?
An electric shower is a self-contained unit, which both heats and pumps the water which enters the unit. Some of the cold water which enters the shower is sent to a small container where it is heated, this hot water then joins the cold water stream before leaving the shower head, and a thermostat ensures a constant temperature. The temperature is adjusted by a valve, you control.
Why Buy an Electric Shower?
Electric Showers are excellent for a quick install. Although used across the home, they are particularly popular with people adding a bathroom into their home – as all they need to operate is cold water supply. If you are refitting a bathroom, and had a standard shower before – it’s unlikely that you will need an electric shower. A range of power options are available, from 8.5kw to 10.5kw, the higher the kw, the higher the performance.
How much do Electric Showers cost?
At the Shower Doctor, out cheapest Electric Shower is under £50 and our most expensive is a little over £750. Prices vary depending upon performance, and there’s an Electric Shower for suitable for every budget and requirement.
