Best Thermostatic Shower in 2023

The Best Thermostatic Showers you can buy right now.

Included in this guide (scroll):

There are many reasons to choose a thermostatic shower. One of the most important is that they are more energy efficient than a traditional mixer shower.

Thermostatic showers save water and electricity because they only use as much hot water as they need to produce the desired temperature. This saves money on your utility bills, which can add up over time and is especially important at the moment.

Top Three Thermostatic Showers

A thermostatic shower is regulated automatically by a thermostat (hence the name) that senses the temperature and adjusts how much hot it pumps into the shower. This prevents scalding while you are washing or showering, making them an excellent choice for your family.

We have rounded up the best thermostatic showers that exist right now, let’s take a look.

What is the best thermostatic shower?

We found the best Thermostatic Shower to be the Hansgrohe Crometta E Thermostatic Shower; it comes with a 5-year warranty, has several safety features, has a sleek polished chrome finish, has a 40°C safety lock to stop burns, a large 240mm overhead deluge, a handheld shower with 2 great spray patterns, and more!

Is a thermostatic shower worth it?

Thermostatic showers are absolutely worth it. Precise temperature control is an excellent thing to have and most of the top thermostatic showers have lots of extra safety features as well. One thing I like about thermostatic showers is that they often have great warranty periods of around 5 years – sometimes even up to 10-year warranties. This means you are covered for a very long time and also suggests they aren’t as temperamental as other shower types. The only other shower that provides such a large warranty is digital showers.

What should I look for in a thermostatic shower?

After a lot of research, all the best thermostatic showers have the same kinds of features. These include; a good warranty usually over 5 years, a temperature safety lock (around 38-40 degrees) to stop burning, some kind of anti-scalding finish or material on the shower touchpoints, 2 shower heads with one large overhead (200mm+) and handheld with multiple spray patterns, rub clean nozzles and separate temperature/flow controls. Most of the thermostatic showers on this list feature most or all of these things, which is what makes them the best.

Are thermostatic showers better than regular electric showers?

Whether thermostatic showers are better than regular electric showers all comes down to preference. An electric shower uses your cold water supply and heats the water typically using a heated coil or element. A thermostatic shower mixes both your hot and cold supplies, depending on the temperature selected to get to the desired temperature.

As the hot water uses gas this could mean that thermostatic showers cost more money to run than electric showers. Another difference between the two is that an electric shower usually features a box which houses the coil or element that heats the water, which is usually inside the shower on the wall. A thermostatic shower does not require this which often makes them more visually appealing.

What is the difference between a Thermostatic Shower and a Mixer Shower?

A thermostatic shower has a piece of technology inside known as a thermostat (hence the name) which reacts and adjusts to sudden temperature changes precisely. A mixer shower cannot do this. Both still use cold and hot water supplies it’s just that the thermostatic shower can react to temperature changes and often come with lots of other great features.
