The bathroom in your home has different heating and ventilation requirements as compared to the rest of your home. In temperant climates, it is one of the coldest parts in the home. In this blog, we would recommend different methods to heat your bathroom "sustainably".
Heated Towel Warmers:
Towels warmers are available in different shapes and sizes, making it the versatile, space saving choice for bathroom heating. In addition to heating up the room it also adds certain aesthetics to the bathroom, typically for modern, minimalist or contemporary bathrooms.
There are three primary types of installation: wall mount, floor mount, and freestanding.
Infrared Panels / Heaters:
Infrared panels are similar to a picture frame in thickness, easy to install and provide comfortable infrared heat. An infrared mirror panel for example,can be a good bathroom feature as it is similar to a conventional mirror, thus saving space for an additional heater and does not fog up.
Electric baseboard heaters can be retrofitted to a bathroom as they are easy to install and flexible to re-arrage. The new electric baseboards are able to balance heating requirements and energy savings. As heat rises, electric baseboards can usually heat a room faster than traditional heaters which allow you to run them when you are using the bathroom and turn-off when not in use to allow you save energy.
Underfloor heating is a popular choice for bathroom heating as it saves space, is sustainable and energy efficient. While the upfront cost is slightly more expensive than other heating solutions, underfloor heating has comparatively low running costs.
Other types of heating for the bathroom:
Overhead heaters are a popular choice for smaller bathrooms as they do not take up any floor or wall space. Installation costs need to be factored into budget decisions but once installed overhead bulb heaters are fairly energy efficient and cheap to run.
