Are you in the market for new bathroom heaters? With so many options available, it can be difficult to decide which one is right for you. We’ve explored factors like energy efficiency, style, interior design, and price, so you can make an informed decision when selecting the right bathroom heater for your needs. Let’s get started!

The Different Types of Bathroom Heaters

When it comes to choosing the perfect bathroom heater for your home, there are a variety of different styles of bathroom radiators and heating to choose from. There are traditional, modern and designer models all offering different heating solutions for your bathroom space. The classic style of radiator is a great choice if you’re looking for a timeless design which blends in with the existing décor of your home. These radiators offer a low cost heating solution and are easy to install and maintain.

Heated towel rail bathroom radiators

Towel radiators offer an effective solution for bathrooms where space is limited, as they provide both heating and a place to hang towels. They come in a range of styles, from traditional to contemporary, and are very energy efficient. These radiators come in sleek designs and can provide a statement feature piece in your bathroom. What’s more, they’re as practical as they are stylish and will ensure your towels are kept toasty between uses. The downside is that they can be difficult to install and require frequent maintenance.

Underfloor bathroom heating

Underfloor heating is another popular choice for bathrooms, as it provides an even heat throughout the room and is very energy efficient. As well as this, if you’re limited by space then it’s a great way of not taking up unnecessary space. It can also evoke a sense of luxury and comfort. However, underfloor heating can be expensive and disruptive to install and has to be maintained regularly. Want to know more?

Classic horizontal radiators

Classic horizontal, wall-mounted radiators are the most popular type of radiator for bathrooms, as they don’t take up much floor space and can be placed anywhere in the room. They are also relatively easy to install and maintain. The downside is that they are not as energy efficient as other types of radiators.

Heat pumps

Heat pumps are one of the most energy-efficient types of bathroom radiators as they are designed to circulate heated air in an area, resulting in lower energy consumption than traditional radiators. They also require much less maintenance than boilers, only needing professional check-ups every 3 to 5 years. On the down side, you may require planning permission to have one installed and they’re also susceptible to damage in cold weather. Explore our deep dive into all things heat pumps.
