Fitting a Showerdome® makes the shower nice and cosy because the warm air created by the shower rose is contained in the shower cubicle. The hot water tap can be turned down to bring the temperature back to a comfortable level. Typical reduction is 10-15% even in winter.
Result: You can finally enjoy a shower where you don’t have to huddle yourself into the water stream just to stay warm! Plus cost savings achieved by reducing hot water consumption and extractor fan running costs.
Use less water
You can now enjoy the savings from using less water and energy by fitting a water conservation shower head or regulator - and still enjoy a warm cosy shower by fitting a Showerdome®. The addition of a Showerdome® in conjunction with a flow regulator to your shower will result in a surprisingly fast payback on costs - and help to conserve valuable water resources.
Many showers use 15 - 20 litres of water per minute. With the addition of a flow regulator or a low flow shower head, considerable savings will be made. There is a lot of evidence showing that typical families can save over 20,000 litres per year.
Reduce energy costs
Everything you do in your home uses energy. When you shower without a Showerdome®, you’ll naturally turn the hot water up to make it warmer because you’re dealing with cold air mixing with the warm air. To remedy this, you’ll run the extractor fan to deal with the steam that is created.
With the Showerdome® you can shut the extractor fan off, close the window, and use less hot water to stay warm while you shower. Added to that is the saving gained from not heating so much water, and heating it to a lower temperature within your shower cubicle. The savings are considerable.
Stop mould & mildew
Eliminating moisture laden air from your bathroom is one of the key benefits of installing a Showerdome®. All that steam rolling around in your bathroom, settling on your walls and along the grout is creating a breeding ground for unhealthy mould, mildew and fungus. Unless you deep clean and scrub every surface daily, then you already have a problem. With Showerdome®, you don’t have these steam issues anymore. No more mould, mildew or fungus means a much healthier bathroom, and less requirement to use harsh chemicals for cleaning.
Result: Ecologically better, substantially reduces cleaning time and the associated cleaning materials cost
Warm, dry homes are much healthier
With mould and mildew growth, you get spores that travel through the home. The excess spores can make breathing difficult and weaken immune systems so your family gets sick more often. Moisture feeds dust mites which are recognized as the cause of many health problems such as asthma in children, and rheumatics in elderly.
By simply fitting a Showerdome®, you will immediately improve the air quality in your home.
Moisture on bathroom tiles & floors can be dangerous. With steam creating excess moisture, it’s much more likely that you or a member of your family, might slip and fall as they get out of the shower. Keep that moisture in its place, and your family safe with Showerdome®.
Condensation on your ceilings & walls in your bathroom will damage paint, and encourage the growth of unsightly mould & mildew. By containing the moisture in the shower cubicle, you eliminate the need for constant cleaning & redecorating in the bathroom & surrounding rooms. Moisture damage also harms wood finishes & stains, flooring and other surfaces in the bathroom. Many modern homes have an ensuite off the bedrooms. Moisture from the showers permeates the bedroom making carpets, drapes, bedding, and clothing damp. Showerdome® stops all shower generated steam.
Result: This reduces overall maintenance requirements and is especially smart for rental properties where tenants don’t always dry the bathroom out, or worry about damage from poor ventilation.
A Showerdome® shower top stops steam and moisture leaving your shower, so you can enjoy mist-free mirrors, a dry bathroom and a warm, clear shower enclosure. Showerdome® shower tops not only eliminate shower steam, they also look completely at home in any bathroom décor with their clean, clear designs.
As people up and down the country ponder how to achieve a warm, dry, healthy home, we are often asked the question “Is a Showerdome® better than an extractor fan?”. In simple, our answer is a resounding YES! If you don’t make steam in the first place, then you don’t need to extract it. Revelation!
Consider Showerdome® shower tops as part of standard bathroom specification for your group housing development, spec build, high rise apartment building, rental property management company or motel. Installing a Showerdome® will keep your bathrooms dry, healthy and low maintenance now and into the future.
