Electric shower head heaters

Constant hot water, constant savings

I lived in Costa Rica for a year, and while travelling there I discovered the electric shower head, a great way to save energy on hot water. If you live in North America you have probably not heard of these marvelous inventions, unless you live in a mobile home, or are at the cutting edge of energy efficiency. What are they?
An electric shower head heats ambient-temperature water to a comfortable shower temperature as it is coming out the shower head. This means you don't need to keep a tank of water hot just so you can take a shower. Or, if you live in a cooler climate, you don't have to keep your water as hot for other uses.
A comfortable shower temperature is usually slightly warmer than body temperature - about 38 to 42C, or 100 to 108F. If you're a devoted energy conserver, there aren't a lot of other household hot water uses that require that hot a temperature. In fact you can do pretty much everything else in cold water, including laundry, dishes, filling the mop bucket, even running your automatic dishwasher (which, if ENERGY STAR rated, has its own built-in heater, although not all of them can handle starting from cold water). The only exception would be a bath, but if you can live without the occasional hot bath, you can cut your hot water bill to almost zero with an electric shower water heater.


Instantaneous Electric Showers are still one of the most popular types of shower sold in the UK today. Which is why Triton manufactures an extensive range to suit all tastes and budgets.
An electric shower simply connects to a cold water supply and your mains electric, so it's versatile enough to suit any home no matter what your plumbing system.
They are easy to install and they give you and your family instant hot water - any time, day or night.
So, what are the electrical requirements you need to know before you can choose an electric shower?
First of, all electric showers need to connect to your mains electric supply.
More to the point, it must have its own dedicated supply from your consumer unit.
It must not be connected to a ring main, spur, socket outlet, lighting circuit or cooker circuit.
The important thing is to ensure that the electric supply is adequate for the shower and existing circuits.
Check that your consumer unit has a main switch rating of 80A or above and that it has a spare fuse way to take the fuse or Miniature Circuit Breaker (MCB) for the shower.
The correct rating of MCB or fuse will depend on the kilowatt rating of the shower that is to be fitted. For more information on kW ratings take a look at our "What is a kW rating?" video.
If your consumer unit has a rating below 80A, or if there is no spare fuse way, then the installation will not be straightforward.

There's nothing like starting your day off with an invigorating shower, waking you up and getting you ready for the busy day ahead. It's also a great way of relaxing in the evening, relieving stress and soothing tired muscles; in fact, a shower has become an integral part of everyday life!
