What electrical requirements are there for electric shower installation?

The electrical installation for an electric shower is a bit more complicated than the plumbing aspect of the installation. Cable and fuse sizes for an electric shower can differ depending on the shower’s power (in kW) consumption. A Part P-certified electrician will have knowledge of all this as well as the plumbing aspects of the installation.

The most effective way to find a reliable electrical shower installer is to know and identify what qualifications the installer should have. For instance, your electrical shower installer should have a minimum of at least one of the following:

  • NICEIC Certification Services
  • NAPIT Certification
  • BRE Certification
  • British Standards Institution

And, of course, the installer must also be Part P certified. To further ensure that you get the best results and that you are sufficiently covered, be sure to come to an agreement with the installer that he/she will take responsibility for the installation complying with all pertinent building regulations and the provision of the BS7671 certificate which will be needed in the event you choose to sell your home.

Regardless of where you live in the UK, if you are in need of a Part P-certified electrician for the effective and safe installation or repair of your electrical shower, Electrics On Tap has you covered.
