The straightforward answer is yes and no.

No I can't be more specific because you need to provide a great deal more information about your current DHW installation frankly.

But for example:

What type is your current shower?

What are you present DHW arrangements?

If the water pressure to the house is poor, then no.

If the water pressure is good, it could just be your old shower is furred up inside with limescale - restricting the flow, So a new shower the same size or whatever would probably be better.

Do you have a Combi Boiler ? thermostatic mixer shower an option.
Much better than an electrc shower.
