Electric showers require their own unique electrical circuit, which generally has the highest electrical demand out of other appliances in your home.
Showers in the bathroom need to be connected to the consumer unit and protected by an RCD. The cost of fitting an electric shower will depend on whether the consumer unit and circuit requires updating to comply with the current safety standards.
Shower Circuits must have an RCD fitted into the circuit as the shower is normally located in a high risk zone and the electricity must trip out within 0.4 seconds to ensure there are safety precautions in place. If there isn’t an RCD already fitted in the consumer unit then a RCD will be fitted in line with the circuit.
It’s best to understand the amount of power that your shower will need as this would be a vital piece of information in understanding how Bilwire Electrical Services will carry out any work needed in regards to the shower circuit.
