Heating for bathrooms is an important element of any renovation. Conventional heating, such as ducted heating can be used in bathrooms however specialist bathroom heating products can be more effective and are well worth considering.
Heater, Light and Exhaust Combinations
Heating that is incorporated into overhead lighting in a bathroom in the form of heating globes are popular, relatively easy to install and are on and off at the flick of a switch.
3 in 1 or Light Heating and Fan combinations as well as 2 in 1 combinations are available.
As these are generally wired to the light switch you will need an electrician to intall these.They do provide a lot of instant heat but can be a little expensive to run.
Heated Towel Rails
>Modern heated towel rails claim to do a lot more than heat up towels, they are said to actually heat up the bathroom as well.
We have found it a little difficult to justify the claim that they are worth the money. So although they come with timers as well as thermostats and newer designs are fairly energy efficient.
They really do not seem to heat the bathroom itself
Wall mounted heated towel racks are the most popular.
Heated Bathroom Flooring
If you are doing a complete bathroom makeover this can work. The comfort of heated flooring is a great feeling in bathrooms, laid beneath the tiles under floor heating needs to installed during a renovation.
Heated Mirror Heaters for Bathrooms
Bathroom mirror heaters are also available.
|So to sum it all up, we like ducted heating the best, with the floor heating coming a close second. The floor heating will cost about the same as an electric heated towel rail, but you do get warm feet in winter.|
