Choosing the best shower unit for your new bathroom can be a little overwhelming, especially for first time buyers. Many are not aware of just how many types of showers are available. So, we have put together this blog to explain what the difference is between them.
Electric showers are one of the more popular choices for new bathroom refurbishments. This is because they offer instant hot water which doesn’t run out. If you have a combi boiler, the electric shower is a good option for your home. Furthermore, installing an electric shower means if you have any boiler issues, you can continue to enjoy hot showers.
Unlike the electric shower which heats up water itself, the mixer shower requires an existing source of hot water. Just like the name suggests, it mixes the hot and cold water before sending it through the shower head. Mixer showers tend to have a stronger water flow than electric showers and are good for large hot water tanks.
The power shower is a good compromise if you are stuck between a mixer shower or an electric shower. The power shower provides the best results in terms of waters pressure but do tend to use more water. Much like mixer showers, power showers rely on the boiler to heat the water and then mixes it with cold. While it does require electric, it does not use electric current to heat the water.
The new kid on the block when it comes to shower functionality is the digital shower. The perfect choice for those who love to have the latest tech in their home. Working just like the mixer shower unit, digital showers use the boiler for hot water. However, the neat little control panel gives you complete control and precision over the temperature of your shower and flow rate. Some of the latest models allow you to sync with Alexa and such technology. Therefore, allowing you to control your shower with simple voice commands.
