Electric showers warm the water through the shower unit. They are not connected to the boiler heating system or hot water supply. The advantage is that because they are independent they will still work separate of the boiler and will not be affected should another family member turn on a tap or washing machine. Electric showers always provide hot weather and are fitted with thermostatic controls.
Newer electric shower models have integrated digital technology. this enables the user to set accurate temperature and flow settings. These are also more environmentally friendly and will save on running costs.
Electric showers have advanced from plain white box units over the years and modern designs that include glass designs can be purchased.
Be aware that electric power showers are different to electric showers. A hot and cold water feed is required for the power shower option.
