These days, the majority of bathrooms feature a traditional radiator, heated towel rail or duct to keep the space warm. While all of these options are perfectly fine (providing that they are the correct size for the room), they are known to leave a cold chill in the air. When you’re standing there, naked and dripping wet, we are sure that you are looking for a solution that is a little better than ‘fine’, which is where underfloor heating comes in.
As traditional radiators can grow quite hot, it is not unknown for a person to burn themselves (either by touching or accidentally brushing up against the surface). This makes underfloor heating a much safer option for the bathroom, as it eliminates the possibility of burns. Your floor will always be comfortable enough to walk barefooted on, even for the youngest of your brood.
Many homeowners run into temperature problems when it comes to more traditional heating methods. Small spaces are often overwhelmed and become stiflingly hot. Large spaces often experience uneven heat distribution, as the air cools too quickly. An underfloor system will eliminate both of these problems and will provide your space with an even level of comfortable warmth.
For many homeowners, safety is important in the bathroom because of the hazards associated with water. Old-fashioned heaters with exposed cables are not recommended for such spaces, as they can lead to electrocution or even a fire. An underfloor system, however, has its cabling completely hidden beneath the floor. It is also waterproof, so there is no chance of getting electrocuted.
If your bathroom is small, we are sure that you want to maximise the space as much as possible. Traditional heating solutions will take up a wall or floor space that you can’t afford to lose. An underfloor system, on the other hand, will ensure that your wall and floor space is freed up for that extra vanity or standalone shower, as all of the components are installed beneath the floor.
Believe it or not, underfloor heating is still considered a luxury amongst many homeowners. If you are thinking about selling your home sometime in the future, you will find that a beautiful bathroom complete with one of these systems puts your property in hot demand. Adding value to the property is something that every homeowner should aspire to do, as it will ensure that you get top dollar when selling.
As you can see, underfloor heating is a smart choice for bathrooms all over the country. Not only is the system perfectly safe for use around wet areas and your family, but it will also keep the space at a comfortable temperature, save some much-needed space and will add value to your home. If you need any more incentive to switch your heating system today, it is also good to keep in mind that heated towel rails are also available!
