Electric shower installation in Nairobi.
Electric showers offer great benefits to households where there is a limited supply of hot water from the tank, as it provides hot water or demand – a must-have for busy families where everyone is trying to get ready at around the same time!
Electric showers completely bypass the hot water requirements of other showers as they take water from the cold water supply and contain a heated element that functions by bringing water to the required temperature as it passes through the shower unit, almost instantly heating it by the time it reaches the shower head.
The temperature is controlled by changing the speed at which the water flows through the element. New electric showers must be installed by a qualified electrician or plumber. Each electric shower must be powered directly from a fuse box on a dedicated circuit to ensure a safe installation.
Arrowtech electricians are fully qualified to install electric showers and will ensure your installation is in compliance with building codes.
socket in bathroom
Conventional electrical outlets are not allowed or installed in bathrooms or showers unless they are at least ten feet away from the tub or shower, which is impractical in most bathrooms.
However, if you want to install equipment such as a bathroom TV, an Arrowtech electrician can help you add hard wiring outside the bathroom to allow for bathroom-approved equipment.
Installation of the shaver socket
Bathrooms allow for low-voltage shaver sockets, which can power not only electric shavers, but also items such as electric toothbrushes, dental floss, and other low-voltage bathroom appliances.
Arrowtech Electricians can help you install safe and effective electrical outlets for your bathroom, keeping your family’s needs in mind.
Installing a towel rail or heater
Central heating is the safest way to keep your bathroom warm. However, this is not practical in all situations, and many homeowners appreciate the aesthetic and practical advantages of installing a towel rail or dedicated heater in the bathroom.
Any electric or gas water heater installed in the bathroom must be permanently installed and permanently wired unless power is supplied from an outlet at least ten feet away from the tub or shower. Under no circumstances should a portable heater be used in your bathroom or shower.

Extractor fans installation Nairobi
Fully functional range hoods in bathrooms, showers, and toilets are essential for hygiene and ensuring your damp rooms are free of condensation, which can cause dampness and mold.
Moisture can damage the structure of your property and the health of the people who live in it.
If you are a landlord or own a commercial building, ventilation is required by law through bathroom windows or exhaust fans, and every bathroom should have a fan that draws air at a rate of at least 15 liters per minute and runs continuously for 15 minutes after power is turned off
We work with you to assemble the best range hood for your bathroom and connect it securely to the mains.

- The timer doesn’t work (stays on or doesn’t start at all)
- Visible wet stains in the bathroom or shower area
- At Arrowtech Electricians, we will always advise you on the best course of action and repair your fans wherever possible.
Can I put a TV in the bathroom?
Yes! Some TVs are specifically designed to be installed in bathrooms. However, due to the dangers of mixing water and electricity, you must choose a TV that is specifically designed for this purpose.
The wiring for this type of installation is outside the bathroom and at Arrowtech Electricians we have extensive experience installing bathroom TVs.

A new innovation in shower technology, the digital shower offers many advantages, including the ability to control the temperature from outside the shower and, in the case of the wireless version, greater installation flexibility.
You’re tired of jumping into the shower and waiting for the water to get hot – why not let it run to your liking before you step into the shower?
Thanks to the separate mixer and separate shower controls, the valve can be hidden so less plumbing is required.
Bathroom electrical installations
As we all know, water and electricity cannot be mixed. Since water is the conduit that carries electricity, the combination of the two can actually be deadly. Therefore, if you need to install electrical equipment in your bathroom, it is important that it be installed by a certified electrician.
At Arrowtech Electricians, we have helped install a variety of electrical products in bathrooms in Nairobi. Our experienced electricians work to the highest standards to ensure the electrical equipment provided in your bathroom is completely safe, while still allowing you to enjoy features such as a power shower, ambient lighting, and even a TV or speaker system.
Which lights are safe for my bathroom?
Ideally, all lights in the bathroom should be closed, not lights hanging from the ceiling. As mentioned above, the luminaires have an IP rating to ensure they are suitable for the area in which they are located.

light switch in bathroom
Any non-enclosed luminaires must be placed out of the reach of the user or remain damp in the bath or shower. The same goes for your light switches – every day switches carry the risk of getting wet and wet hands. Ceiling-mounted wall switches are the safest option.
