The Best Electric Shower in 2023

Best Electric Shower in 2023

The Best Electric Showers that are available right now.

Included in this guide (scroll):

Electric showers are a great option for your bathroom or shower room for a number of reasons. They are versatile, fairly inexpensive (especially when compared to Digital showers and sometimes Mixer showers), easy to install, can be used with any domestic water system, and better yet, they help save energy (and therefore money!).

Top Three Electric Showers

Electric showers make use of in-built electrical (hence the name) heating components, typically a coil-shaped element, to heat up the water to your desired temperature. This is one of my favourite features of an electric shower. They heat up the water very quickly, reducing the amount of time spent shivering inside the shower before the water gets hot!

Electric showers are an excellent option for your home, as well as other washroom environments like student accommodations, hotels, property, or sites with restricted or limited space. They are also an excellent fit for locations with no significant storage provisions because they heat water independently. 

There are plenty of great options available. Read on to discover our shortlist of the best electric showers on the market today.

What is the best electric shower?

We found the best electric shower to be the Mira Azora Dual; it features a cool contemporary frosted glass design, limescale reduction technology, thermostatic temperature control, a massive 200mm deluge, 4-spray shower head, anti-scalding technology, separate temperature and power controls, a 2-year warranty, the list goes on and on with this excellent electric shower.

What is the average lifespan of an electric shower?

Many electric showers will work well for around four years before it is time for a replacement. Keep in mind that some may last many more years depending on factors like model, amount of use, and water quality,  among others. Always get a professional opinion on whether or not you should replace your current electric shower. 

Are Mira electric showers any good?

Many people will agree that Mira electric showers are some of the best on the market today. Mira designs premium shower and bathroom equipment that is perfect for consumers and installers alike. My favourite thing about Mira electric showers is the unique technologies they design (e.g. Clearscale, Sensi-Flo, etc). On top of that, they have a great customer care team, provide 2+ years on all their electric showers and they are fairly inexpensive.

Are Triton electric showers any good?

Triton electric showers are excellent products that are easy to install and use. They also come with plenty of features that help boost water flow, reduce limescale buildup, save water and energy and maintain temperature stability. Different models are also available, allowing consumers to compare various units before selecting the perfect one.

What is the best wattage for an electric shower?

The best wattage for an electric shower depends primarily on the water supply and the type of water pressure you are working with. 7.5kW to 8.5kW work well for locations with reliable water supplies because they require less power. Ultimately, if you would like a more powerful flow the best thing you can do is go for a high kW electric shower.

Is a 9.5 kW electric shower powerful?

Yes, 9.5kW is fairly powerful for a shower. The lowest wattage for an electric shower is typically 7.5kW and it goes up to around 10.5kW, making 9.5kW not that far away from the top power rating! In terms of power though, this is often subjective and depends on a number of factors, like water pressure and which mode you select on the shower. Ultimately, in terms of power rating, 9.5kW is one of the highest choices.

Which is the most powerful electric shower?

All electric showers, typically come in power ratings of between: 7.5kW up to 10.8kW. So based on that, the most powerful electric shower would technically be the one that is 10.8kW. However, most people when they ask about power, they are referring to how strong the shower spray is itself. As mentioned earlier, we found the Mira Sport Max Airboost to be the electric shower with the most power, mainly because of its innovative Airboost technology, which increases the flow of water by up to 30%! We also placed this shower on our power shower list.

How do I choose the best electric shower?

In order to choose the best electric shower, you need to identify what it is you want from a shower. Do you want an inexpensive electric shower? Do you want an electric shower with a lot of features? Do you want the most aesthetic-looking electric shower? Etc. At the top of this guide, I created lots of different categories to help you with this process.
