New bungalow entirely electric

Postby happyhacker » Sat May 15, 2010 8:01 am

Two bed just the two of us. We want to have a bath with mains electric shower over. We were wondering what sort of hot water tank to fit given that this will supply the bath (which we may use more as we get older) and kitchen plus 2 other sinks. I am previously used to indirect water cylinders. We have Night Storage Heating but not a lot of room. Vented or not maybe the question. Currently have a tank in the roof and the chance to get rid of that would be good!

Any advice welcome.

Simply Build It

You could go for an electric combi - meaning you could add radiators to the bungalow too, abit pricey though. Other than that you can't really lose the tank.

Are you sure about this?? In my experience, elderly people prefer shower cubicles simply because of the difficulty in getting in and out of a bath.
