Bathroom Heating Solutions

Getting out of a warm bath or shower into a cold bathroom can be uncomfortable, but thankfully there is a range of bathroom radiators available to help heat the bathroom and dry your towels at the same time. Here is a quick overview of the options when it comes to heating your bathroom.

Central heating radiators

By far the most common type of radiator in the bathroom, a central heating radiator or towel rail is connected straight into your existing heating system. These are available in a range of different styles, shapes and sizes, and it’s easy to find one to suit any style of bathroom including the Aestus Partito 4 Column Radiator featured below.

Electric Towel Rails

Electric towel rails are another popular choice when it comes to bathrooms. They have an advantage over central heating radiators as they can be turned on when needed and do not rely on the central heating system to be on. These types of radiators are also available in various shapes and sizes and can be positioned on any spare wall like the Zehnder Atoll Electric Radiator featured below.

Due to the unique heating elements in these radiators they are often more expensive than central heating or electric radiators, but offer the best of both worlds like the Apollo Ravenna Traditional Towel Rail CR Dual Fuel featured below.

Underfloor Heating

Underfloor Heating is the most luxurious heating solution for the bathroom and is also the most expensive. This type of heating system is usually installed when a whole new bathroom is being fitted or built from scratch and offers consistent heating throughout the whole bathroom.

Underfloor heating systems are available in both electric or central heating styles and are usually control by a separate thermostat, below is an example of electric underfloor heating system, the Raychem T2Quicknet 160 Underfloor Heating Mat Set.

Zehnder Silent Bathroom Extractor Fans

Extractor fans fitted to a bathroom, en-suite, or cloakroom, are an essential part of these rooms today, not just for removing any unpleasant odours, but for essential extracting of steam or moisture from the areas. With our homes now being better insulated and for many of us, with double glazed draught proofed windows, condensation could be become a major problem if the moisture was not removed.

There are many examples of highly efficient extractor fans on the market today, but one of the complaints about some is that they can be noisy. Zehnder manufacture a series of extractor fans which are 70% quieter than standard axial fans. You can choose from a choice of 3 wall fans, and 2 ceiling fans, all designed to do the job in a quiet efficient manner.

Zehnder Vesta Electric Towel Warmer

With the summer fast approaching this is the time to consider upgrading your current towel drying arrangements particularly if you are considering an upgrade to your bathroom or en-suite areas. Towel drying and warming is an important function in a modern home, long gone are the days when wet towels from a rail were normal or we had to go to an old fashioned airing cupboard to retrieve one, and we always forgot before we got into the bath or shower!

Upgrading to one of the sleek modern electric bathroom radiators makes sense; this means that you do not have to have any heat from your boiler to keep your fluffy towel warm and cosy.  One of the many at the UK Bathroom radiators web pages is the Zehnder which is a really clever design and will fit into the smallest of spaces. Featuring low electricity consumption and an integrated hinge allowing it to be swivelled 180′ the Vesta is available in White matt, Volcanic or Aluminium colour.
