In the cold of Winter, a shower is the perfect way to wake up and refresh ahead of a long day, or warm up and relax when you get home. However, to get the best out of your shower when the cold weather arrives, we have the following advice…
Changes to incoming (ambient) water temperature
During times of cooler weather conditions, the incoming (ambient) cold water is naturally cooler – around 5°C compared to 15°C at warmer times of the year. As such, the performance of your shower unit will be affected by the lower ambient water temperature - as it requires additional heating to reach your desired showering temperature.
Understanding electric shower performance
So how exactly do cooler ambient water temperatures affect electric shower performance? Well, as you increase the showering temperature, water will take longer to pass over the heating elements to produce the desired temperature (think of an electric kettle here), causing a reduction in the flow rate of your electric shower. Simply put, the warmer you set your shower temperature, the slower the flow rate (and vice versa).
If you are experiencing symptoms of your showering temperature being too cool it may be worth checking:
