New intelligent showering from Redring
Published: 24 January, 2013
For homeowners looking for an Eco showering option that will help reduce both energy and water bills, the new Xpressions Eco-T thermostatic shower from Redring is an ideal choice.
At a time when utility bills are constantly on the rise, the new Xpressions Eco-T offers homeowners a unique solution to help them save both energy and water on a daily basis. Thanks to a unique timer button, users can accurately control the amount of time spent in the shower, saving both water and energy and helping reduce monthly household costs. The timer, which is set to six minutes, can be switched on at any stage whilst the shower is in operation and a blue LED will flash to indicate imminent shut down after 5.5 minutes. The shower can still be manually switched off or at any time even if the timer is in use.
In addition to the timer function, the new shower also features an Eco button, which allows users to reduce the total loading of the full kW unit to 65%, bringing dramatic savings in energy costs. This feature is particularly useful in the summer months when the incoming water ambient temperature is higher than winter and may be required if the incoming water supply is very high and the flow rate is limited by low mains pressure.
The Xpressions Eco-T also provides an extremely safe showering solution for both families with young children or older users. The shower maintains its temperature thermostatically to within +/- 1.5°C via the multi heating element heat exchanger, meaning there will be no sudden changes in temperature. It is also possible to set a maximum showering temperature of 43°C or 46°C at installation via a selector switch on the PCB. A phased shut down function also ensures the next person in the shower does not get an initial surge of hot water.
Simple to control, the shower features a start/stop push button and rotary temperature control via a large easy grip dial with colour-coded arrows showing the direction for temperature adjustment. Power selection is also via push buttons and the options include ‘high’ and ‘eco’.
Available in a range of kW ratings including 7.2, 8.5 and 9.5kW the Xpressions Eco-T is available in a variety of stylish finishes to suit all applications. The 8.5kw model is also currently available in limited edition gunshot grey, chrome and black.
The Xpressions Eco-T offers a rating of IPX4 and is also BEAB approved.
