Kelda’s cutting-edge Air-Powered showers use the principles of fuel injection technology. Each shower features an intelligent microprocessor and powerful digital fan which controls the delivery of water and air to the shower head. Within the shower head, water is injected into a high-velocity air stream where it is broken up into 100s of droplets that are 2.5X the size of a standard shower. Larger droplets yield larger momenta providing the sensation of more spray force, making less water feel like so much more. With 15X more impact than a standard shower, a Kelda shower is more effective at rinsing shampoo out of even the thickest of hair.
The Building Research Establishment (BRE) has estimated that an Air-Powered shower could help to reduce a household’s total carbon emissions by as much as 10%, reduce total hot water energy use by around 20% and improve a dwellings SAP score.
Air-Powered showers are proud to be installed in the Z-House – a zero-carbon concept home built by the UK’s largest housebuilder Barratts Developments to showcase the latest sustainable technology. The technology has also been independently verified by Energy Saving Trust, who claim that switching to a Kelda shower could save a family of four around £255 per year in household bills.
