An electric power shower is a great addition to any home. They are great if your boiler doesn't have the pressure to allow you to have a high powered shower in your home. It also allows you to choose the perfect setting for water flow when you are in the shower. In addition to this, it is a great upgrade in a home if you plan on selling it. Buyers want homes which are updated and having the latest showerhead installed, is a great upgrade to the bathroom which buyers will be looking for.
If you are simply purchasing a new electric shower and swapping out your current shower then you are looking to pay around £100-£200. If, however, your home is extremely old or requires upgrades to plumbing, this is where the cost of labour will increase. If you have to upgrade your electrics or pipework then it can cost a lot more to change. It will cost between £125-£300 if you have to upgrade your current pipes and electrics.
Once you’ve chosen your electric shower you need to contact a minimum of 3 professionals for the job. On myjobquote.co.uk you can easily find the top professionals and list your job for them to view. If a local trade accepts your job they will get in touch and arrange a date they can come over and inspect the job. Once they come over and take a look at the job we recommend that you ask for a written quotation outlining labour and material costs. They will give you a breakdown on what the job entails and how long it should roughly take if they don’t meet any hurdles.
If it is as simple as replacing an old system and installing a new one then it is a simple job and shouldn’t cost too much. Once you’ve chosen who you want to hire, it is important to contact them to discuss payment terms, duration of the project which shouldn’t exceed 1-2 days in most cases even with complex wiring or plumbing work. It is also important that you request documentation for upgrades done to show the new shower is in compliance with local wiring and plumbing codes.
