This week we share with our lucky readers a small selection of our favourite electric showers. Electric showers are becoming more and more popular with DIY bathroom renovators nowadays, thanks to their overall great value, functionality and energy efficiency.
Electric toothbrushes, electric cars – it’s no surprise that electric showers are becoming the future.
What are Electric Showers?
In the past, some have regarded electric showers as being a cheap and not so elegant home bathroom washing option. Though however valid those views were some decades ago, they are certainly outdated now, as you will see from the eclectic electric showers featured right here on Drench’s array of beautiful products.
Electric showers can be regarded as self-contained shower units featuring heating and pumping within the design. This means that an electric shower requires only a cold water supply and that it can supply your family with the perfect temperature water whenever required.
That’s right – no more long waits for the boiler to pick up the slack and no shivering in those dreaded winter mornings. For many, including the Drench team, the convenience of the electric shower far outweighs any qualms regarding classiness.
Electric showers result in lesser gas bills, too. So, for those concerned by expenditure, which we should all be in this day and age, the highly energy efficient electric shower may be the right choice for you. No boiler, no problems. Just a self-contained electric shower ready to dish out affordable, pleasant showers as and when.
The electric shower head is also a super easy-to-clean system, which reduces the limescale build up that can become a real plague with some traditional shower systems. Clean, modern, efficient – that’s the electric shower in a nutshell.
How Electric Showers Work
You can think of your new electric shower the same way as you think of your kitchen kettle. When activated, cold water is taken into the shower unit and heated very quickly. Then, via a thermostatic shower valve, the stream of water is fed out of the shower head at the temperature specified.
Electric showers also put an end to the dreaded lapse in temperature when somewhere else in the house activates a tap or flushes a toilet.
Now that you know about the “why,” let’s get down to the “which?”
We have many electric showers available on our online store and have picked out a powerful trio to give you a good introduction and launchpad from which to continue your own search. Trust us when we say you will not be pressed for options. And if you want to ask our opinion, you can reach out to our friendly expert support team anytime right here.
Vado: Visually Riveting Electric Showers
When it comes to selecting the best electric showers there are many shower kits to choose from, as you will see when browsing our store. But it would be a disservice to discuss electric showers without a nod to one of the very best in the business.
Vado are on the tip of the Drench team’s tongue whenever we’re asked to recommend the most stylish and functional electric showers out there. And so, to kickstart your electric shower browsing, we have simply selected three of the best by Vado for you to enjoy.
Well, what a place to start. Vado know just what to do when it comes to electric shower kits, as you will find out. This fantastic chrome electric shower kit will set you back just £239.99 in an 8.5kW model and £259.99 in a 9.5kW guise.
For every kW increase, you can expect a 12.5% increase in flow. So while the 8.5kW model is more than enough, those with larger showers or lovers of high pressure washes may opt for the larger model.
The design of the shower box is elegant and slick, featuring two chrome tones with clear dials and tactile buttons. And you get a lot of kit for your money, this featuring sliding shower rail, anti-kink hose and easy-clean, five-pattern shower head. Vado care about more than looks, too, kitting out this electric shower with phased shutdown to reduce limescale build-up.
Vado set the standard when it comes to electric showers, and you are looking right at it. Featuring an A+ energy efficiency rating and reassuring 2 year manufacturer guarantee, this is a fantastic place to start your electric shower search.
If you’re keen on Vado’s style but want to tone down the chrome, they have you covered with this fantastic black electric shower kit costing just £224.99 in an 8.5kW design and £244.99 in a 9.5kW model.
Like our previous showing by Vado, this Elegance set features the same leading minimalist and modern design, functional shower head, cold mains suitability, energy efficiency and 2 year manufacturer guarantee. It also features the same great collection of kit for the price.
In a further feat of home bathroom functionality, this black electric shower kit has easy plumbing capability – means that the water inlet can accommodate both left- and right-handed cable entry points. Vado have really thought of everything when it comes to this black electric shower kit.
Just when you thought Vado’s Elegance electric shower kit couldn’t get any more stunning, they show you how it’s done with this bronze and chrome variation of their Elegance electric shower kit. Here we have the same kit that you have witnessed in the two offerings above, just in a gorgeous bronze and chrome finish.
If you are looking for a decadent electric shower as the finishing touch to your designer bathroom then you need look no further.
Above, we have seen the sheer consideration of Vado in touching every possible base when it comes to DIY bathroom decorator styles. You have the chrome electric shower for all monochrome and modern bathroom setups, the black electric shower for dark bathrooms, and this bronze electric shower for every décor niche in between.
It’s no wonder that they’re always at the front of our minds when it comes to thinking about electric shower kits to recommend our valued customers.
