Bathroom Radiators & Heating – A Quick Guide

Bathroom Radiators & Heating - A Quick Guide

It’s never a pleasant experience to walk into a cold bathroom especially first thing in the morning. Fortunately there are a number of bathroom heating options that can make using your bathroom much more comfortable. From traditional bathroom radiators to underfloor heating and towel heaters UK homeowners have a great deal of choice.

Most people looking to add extra warmth and comfort to their bathroom will first consider installing a standard bathroom radiator. There is a huge variety available from traditional cast iron to ultra modern flat radiators. Whether you simply require a practical solution or something that will enhance the overall look of the room there is something to match all bathroom designs.

Similar to regular bathroom radiators towel heaters have the added feature of being designed to keep hand and bath towels warm and dry. This type of heater will typically consist of a series of rails or rings that will hold one or more towel. The downside of this type of heating is that generally it isn’t the most effective way of heating the bathroom and unless you have room for a very large towel heater then you will most likely find that you need to install an additional heating system.

Underfloor heating has become more popular in recent years and is a great way to add extra luxury to your bathroom. This type of heating comes in two different versions. The first is fluid filled, similar to a traditional radiator but fitted under the floorboards. This type of system can be difficult to install and so isn’t necessarily the best choice.

The other option is to install an electric coil or mat under the floor which is then linked to the homes electricity supply. This system is fitted with a thermostat and can be turned on and off as needed making it perfect for the bathroom.
