Thermostatic Shower Buying Guide

Everything you need to know about thermostatic showers

  • Tuesday 05 April 2022

There’s nothing worse than waiting for the water to hit the right temperature for your shower, or being shocked by a sudden burst of cold mid-way through. With Mira thermostatic and digital showers, you’ll enjoy consistent water temperatures, offering an enhanced experience with every soak.

What is a thermostatic shower?

A thermostatic shower works by mixing water from your hot and cold supplies to achieve the perfect temperature. Thermostatic showers automatically revert to your set temperature, so you won’t experience a sudden burst of cold water or scalding hot water when someone turns on a tap or flushes a toilet elsewhere in your home.  

Types of thermostatic shower bars 

At Mira, our range of thermostatic mixer showers are available in a selection of styles and configurations, so you can find the perfect shower for your bathroom and lifestyle.  

Choose a thermostatic shower with a slide bar if you want the option to adjust the height of the showerhead. Models with a built-in rigid mixer (BIR) keep the hose and slide bar concealed behind the wall for a more minimalist look. However, you can now have both with the new Mira Opero Dual Mixer shower. With an ultra-sleek, flush valve design makes for a minimal, built-in look – without any complicated in-the-wall installation - pictured.

Benefits of a thermostatic shower 

The main benefit of a thermostatic shower is that you can maintain the water temperature, even if someone turns on a tap or flushes a toilet elsewhere in your home. Not only is this a great safety feature, but it means no unexpected surges of hot or cold water during your shower for a better experience.

Thermostatic showers vs electric showers 

Electric showers only require a cold water supply, using a heating element to make the water hot, whereas thermostatic showers generally require a hot and cold water supply.  

However, you can choose a thermostatic electric shower like the Mira Advance Flex 87kw and get the best of both worlds. You’ll only heat the water you use, saving energy and money long-term, and can look forward to a stable temperature for the duration of your shower. 

The Mira Escape 90kw thermostatic shower features Mira Sensi-flo™ technology to regulate water temperature and flow.
