Underfloor heating is an obvious choice for your bathroom. It takes the chill off bathroom tiles and provides a cosy, spa-like atmosphere. Space-saving and energy-efficient, this type of heating is an affordable luxury when you want to get the most out of your space.
Here’s how to enjoy and get the most out of your underfloor heating for a better bathroom experience.
Pick the best heating system
Probably the most significant appeal of an underfloor heating system in the bathroom is its efficiency and low running costs. In addition, your system operates autonomously and delivers an even ambient heat. For the best results, it’s always best to invest in a good quality system from high-quality brands like Devi, Pro Warm and Warm Up. At Cambridge Bath Co, we work with only the top providers.
Choose the right flooring
Choosing the correct flooring is a must to create an even spread of warmth throughout the bathroom. And while underfloor heating works with wood and tiles, porcelain, ceramic or natural stone tend to have the edge when it comes to warming up quickly and maintaining heat.
Tiles are a popular choice for the bathroom and with good reason. They’re durable, easy to clean and long-lasting. There are also endless choices of colour, shape, style and finish, allowing you to customise your bathroom to design to your specifications.
Love your thermostat
There’s a common misconception that you should leave your underfloor heating running at all times. But the best way to run your system efficiently and cost-effectively is to add a programmable thermostat with a timing system. That way, you can run your heating at a time and temperature that suits you.
Another myth is that setting your thermostat at a higher temperature will make the room heat faster. The simple fact is that this wastes energy. 21℃ is more than adequate for most bathrooms when you want to keep the space warm and welcoming.
Invest in a smart thermostat if you really want to fine-tune your bathroom heating set-up. Then, you can take your heating to the next level by controlling it remotely, ready for your bath or shower. Or set up an automated schedule so your bathroom is heated and ready to go for your busy family in the morning or an indulgent soak at the end of the day.
What’s more, using a smart thermostat will save on your bills. By learning your routines, your thermostat only heats your bathroom when you need it, ultimately saving you money.
Another benefit of an electric underfloor heating system is that it’s virtually maintenance-free. A properly installed electric system will need very little upkeep. However, it’s always best to have your heating system checked annually to ensure it’s running efficiently. In turn, this can save you money on your energy bills and catch any potential issues early before they escalate.
One of the main attractions of installing underfloor heating is the freedom to position your bathroom suite and fixtures where you prefer. By getting rid of radiators, you free up the space to create your dream bathroom.
But even so, there are some advantages to keeping a hybrid system. For example, a slimline heated towel rail is the perfect spot for toasty towels and warm clothes after your bath or shower. Choose a design that integrates beautifully with your overall aesthetic.
