Bathroom Heating – Your Options Explained



If you are planning your bathroom renovation, you also need to consider your bathroom heating options. It’s easy to get caught up thinking about your overall design and whether wet-wall panels or tiles are the right option for your shower. But, heating and ventilation are important, despite being often overlooked. Yes, bathroom heating is an important factor in keeping you warm, but it’s also necessary to prevent freezing pipes and prevent moisture buildup that leads to mould. Here are four of the options you may have available to you.

Heated Towel Holder

The beauty of a heated towel holder or rack is that it will keep your towels dry and toasty, and it will also keep smaller bathrooms well heated. These racks are fairly large, and if you get the positioning right in a smaller bathroom, it is more than sufficient to serve as your sole bathroom heating option. That won’t be the case for larger bathrooms and should only serve as a towel heater if you’re dealing with a larger space. When you plan placement, remember you want it handy to grab your towel as you hop out of your morning shower. 

Underfloor Heating

Underfloor heating is an expensive bathroom renovation investment. But, if you’re renovating a bathroom, you may as well do it right. The benefits of underfloor heating are vast. Not only does it add value to your property, but underfloor heating can also last up to 50 years versus the eight years of a standard radiator. It’s a luxury bathroom heating option, but it will also repay you over the years. With the heat rising from the floor, it keeps your bathroom tiles warm. 

A Dedicated Heat Lamp

Heat lamps are an excellent option for small spaces. As soon as you turn them on, it produces heat. With the right lamp, you can heat the air fairly quickly. These heat lamps are ceiling mounted, and the only way this would be suitable for a larger bathroom is if you mount several heat lamps. A heat lamp might also be a great option for a commercial bathroom remodel. 

A Permanent Heater

If you have bigger bathroom renovations going, permanent heaters are a must. This is a consideration for commercial bathrooms, such as offices or employee bathrooms. It’s the ideal solution for larger home bathroom renovations. A permanent heating solution can be a bar heater or a radiator. You can wall-mount these and wire them with your lights for one, easy control. Radiators are suitable for use low down, but bar heaters should sit at a greater height for safety reasons. 

If you are looking into NDIS bathroom renovations, then any of the above options would be suitable depending on the size of your bathroom space. Bathroom heating is important all year round to prevent mould growth, particularly during the cold winter months. Good heating and ventilation will prevent foggy mirrors, improved airflow, and of course, it will keep you warm.
