Keep It Warm

Want that warm thick air that stays warm when you get out of a nice toasty shower and are getting ready for a long day or going to bed? Then you need to consider a couple options and weigh the pros and cons to decide which is best way to heart your bathroom.

Under Floor Heating

A great way to heat any size of bathroom from the bottom keeping your feet especially warm, usually one of the most satisfying ways. The only thing is it requires running heated pipes under the floor. This is usually expensive and depending on your house can cost a lot.

  • By far one of the best ways to heat any room or house.

  • Great for cold winters
  • Raises home value
  • Can be costly to install or get installed
  • Running all day runs up the power bill usually minimal but can add up
  • Always a chance the system breaks and leaks

Cons

Radiators 

The other option is a wall radiator now unlike a long time ago when they were incredibly ugly you can purchase cheaper units that can blend nicely.  This option usually requires the bathroom to be somewhat air tight that just means there’s not air condition getting under a half inch gap at the bottom of the door.  It will provide less heat only working for a smaller area however most bathrooms tend to fit into that smaller area category. All you really need to keep warm is the main area outside of the shower or bath to stay toasty.

This option is often wired into the lights or on a separate switch for the bathroom so it can be turned off saving power and money. Though these units can be incredibly effective it’s becomes more difficult to pick one that is worth the value and will do the job. Also the under floor heating is usually problem free if set up properly for 25+ years these unites depending on the quality don’t last so long. This is usually more cost effective and far easier to install.

Heat Lamps

Most people know what heat lamps are but are they a good investment? They offer a huge amount of ambient spread out heat so it’s close to the under floor option but they are incredibly energy inefficient. And occasionally you have replace the bulbs which can only add to the cost of the device over time. Though it is cheaper than under floor heating and is probably the closest solution to that nice radiating heat that spreads out across any room really nicely it can be tough.

A nice luxury that a lot of people enjoy is the towel holder/warmer a simple and cost effective that just makes a huge difference for many. No matter what warming method you choose start by getting the room well closed off so the air circulation doesn’t ruin a nice warm bathroom. So many wanted to get a heater but decide against it once they got their bathroom well close off because it stays a lot warmer, after a warm shower they found they just didn’t need it.
