Electric showers can provide instantaneous showering day and night for the whole family.
They draw water directly from a cold water supply and heat it as it is used, so you don’t
need to have a stored hot water supply. Because they are easy to install virtually every
home can have one.
Electric showers require their own electrical circuit, which in general will have the highest
electrical demand out of your household appliances. They will need to be connected to
the fuse box and protected by an RCD. The cost of fitting an electric shower will depend
on whether the fuse box requires updating to comply with current safety standards.
Building regulations require an adequate means of ventilation. An extractor fan is
essential and will help cut down steam in the bathroom.
