Electric showers are one of the best options you can choose if you live in a busy household and frequently run out of hot water. However, this is just one benefit of using an electric shower, there are many other benefits that can be derived from using electric showers. Here are some questions you may have if you wish to purchase an electric shower and the answers to them.

Are electric showers energy efficient?

Energy efficiency is one of the best reasons to invest in an electric shower. An electric shower only heats the water you use, as opposed to some traditional boilers and heaters that will heat all the water in your tank even if you don't use it. Investing in an electric shower ensures that energy is only used when necessary.

Can electric showers eliminate low water pressure?

If you have experienced low hot water pressure from your heating system in the past, then installing an electric shower may be just the right option for you. An electric shower can be installed to work directly off your main cold water supply. This means that it will not be dependent on the amount of water in a tank. A small amount of water in a tank can sometimes cause low hot water pressure. This means that there is very little chance that you will run out of hot water.

What should I bear in mind when purchasing an electric shower?

When purchasing an electric shower you should pay close attention to the amount of kilowatts that the system uses. The higher the kilowatt that is used, the better the flow of hot water will be. If you like slow, medium or extremely high hot water pressure when you shower, you are sure to find an electric shower with the right kilowatt usage for your needs.

Can I get an electric shower that will fit into my bathroom's existing décor?

Electric showers come in a variety of styles, shapes, sizes and colors. This means that you should be able to find one that will fit into your shower's existing décor.

Are electric showers safe?

Electric showers are very safe to use once the showerhead has been installed correctly. Depending on the size of the electric showerhead, it may need some support to prevent it from falling. If the pipe from the wall does not offer sufficient support, cabling can be used on walls or the ceiling to support the showerhead.

Electric showers are a great way to save money on your energy bill and have all the hot water that you available whenever you decide to shower. For more information, contact a plumber like Ideal Plumbing & Heating.
