Kelda Showers Installed in Barratt’s Zed House

Zed House is Barratt’s zero carbon concept home, being the first home in the country built by a major housebuilder that substantially exceeds the Future Homes Standard.

We are delighted to have partnered with Barratt Developments plc on their zero carbon concept home. Situated in Salford, Zed House was designed to test and monitor contemporary sustainable housing technologies, including our own Air-Powered™ technology. 

Zed House was built using advanced contemporary construction methods and in partnership with leading tech organisations.

Kelda Showers fully support Barratt’s commitment to building sustainably, as we all drive towards net zero. 

Kelda’s Air-Powered™ technology offers some of the fastest ROI of any carbon reducing technology. 

We requested product performance verification from Energy Saving Trust in order to ensure that our showers meet the highest energy performance standards. 

A British independent organisation set up to promote energy efficiency, Energy Saving Trust has been a constant source of support and advice for governments and business.

Kelda showers typically save between 50% – 60% of water and energy compared to conventional showers. This significantly reduced carbon emissions, hence their inclusion in Barratt’s Zed House. 

Since our genesis, Kelda’s mission of making less water feel like so much more has been driven by pioneering scientific innovation. Applying advanced aerospace engineering, we have created a revolutionary shower that offers users an indulgent experience delivered in a more sustainable solution.

Our showers are not only eco-friendly, but they are engineered to last too. Designed and manufactured in the UK, our shower products have been exposed and tested against the most demanding real-life environments. This ensures that they can withstand the pressure of high usage.

Kelda Showers are currently in the process of attaining SAP recognition. 

SAP is used for calculating the energy rating of new dwelling, with initial estimations demonstrating that a Kelda shower will reduce DER (actual CO2 emission rate) by about 10% and improve SAP rating by 1 point.

We have also developed a savings calculator, to demonstrate financial savings available for those interested in replacing their existing shower with a Kelda Air-Powered™ shower.

Savings Calculator

This savings calculator has been verified by Energy Saving Trust as accurate and appropriate for use by domestic customers wishing to estimate likely savings from replacing an existing shower with a Kelda Air-Powered™ shower. The outputs are estimates only – actual savings will depend on the details of the household, what parameters are entered and the way the shower is used.
