Installing infrared bathroom heaters can be a great way to make the space more comfortable, especially on cold Winter mornings. Products come in many different styles and are relatively easy to install.
There are many advantages in using this type of heating in the bath, whether existing heat sources are available in the room or not. The infrared bulbs can take the chill off objects and people in the room, rather than simply warming the air. Infrared products make a good choice for a primary heating source in the bath. It can help prevent water lines from freezing and can make getting out of the shower a more pleasant experience.
Infrared bathroom heaters come in a few different types. The ceiling mounted products install like traditional light fixtures. There are also models designed with a vent fan that can replace existing bathroom vents easily with the capability of also warming the space. Products can be inexpensive to purchase. Many models that include the vent and fan can be purchased for under $100.
The addition of such a heat source in the bath does not have to be costly to operate. In many instances infrared bathroom heaters cost less to operate than typical space heaters and can do a better job of removing the chill that homeowners experience. The bathroom is typically one of the smallest rooms in the house so it tends to get warm quickly, making this type of heating source ideal for the bath.
Infrared bathroom heaters can be wall mounted if they are not installed in the ceiling. Mounting them high enough to stay out of reach for small children may be the only consideration in wall mount installation. Infrared bulbs do not produce harmful UV rays so this type of heating source is completely safe for daily use in the home.
Another option for homeowners is to install infrared bathroom heaters in the form of a mirror. This option provides the additional benefit of adding a stylish accessory to the bath. Glass is very efficient in carrying infrared rays where they need to go. In addition, when the heater is in use it will keep the mirror fog free so it can always be used in the bath.
Infrared bathroom heaters are a good choice for many reasons. The ease of installation makes them a good choice for homeowners with little installation experience. They can warm a small room more quickly than other heating sources. They are safe to use and can usually be adjusted for the comfort of users. Products use very little energy so they are cost effective. Many products are affordable for nearly any budget. They can come in varieties like mirrors that add elements of style to the room or with vent fans to retrofit existing ceiling mounted fans.
