Electric Shower Vs Power Shower – Cost, Pressure & Speed 


Speed - Electric Showers Wins The Race



In today’s society Irish people want everything in an instant and this is exactly what an electric shower offers you. Simply push a button and you have hot water.  Electric showers contain a very powerful heating element that turns water from cold to piping hot in an instant.

With a power shower the heating is taken care of outside of the shower itself this is normally with a boiler or an immersion element. This will either require a timer or good planning to ensure you have hot water when needed.



ARRO’s Hot DIY Tip – If your life is all about getting things done in an instant get hot water at the push of a button with an electric shower





If You Love The Pressure – Chose A Power Shower

If like Conor McGregor, you love the pressure then we would highly recommend a power shower. As the name suggests a power shower will offer you a nice steady flow of water. Because an electric shower heats the water instantly it has certain limitations. The power shower, on the other hand, is normally working with a large tank of hot water so it can focus on pushing the water out at a higher rate.



ARRO’s Hot DIY Tip – If you are all about water pressure, then chose a power shower over an electric shower.



Which Is More Cost Efficient An Electric Shower Or A Power Shower?

This is not a straight forward question. If you have a relatively small hot tank that is correctly insulated, you may only have to heat the water for twenty minutes or so. On the other hand if you are a quick, in and out, person when it comes to showering then an electric shower may suit you more and cost you less.




ARRO’s Hot DIY Tip – To Save money with a power shower, have a well-insulated hot tank and heat the water at an off-peak hour.
