Have you ever thought about how cold your bathroom can get? You may have an old-style radiator in your wet room, but is it really giving out enough heat to keep you cosy? If not, it may be time to consider looking at single zone underfloor heating instead. But what are the major benefits of underfloor heating, and why is it so popular for bathrooms?
You may have heard a lot about underfloor heating already, however, it is well worth taking a close look at the benefits it could bring to your bathroom space.
Instant Heat Beneath Your Feet
Wet underfloor heating for bathrooms is superb at warming you up after a cold shower. During cold months, it is even more desirable! Bathrooms have a habit of getting very cold and damp very quickly. What’s more, traditional heating and radiator systems can be very inefficient at warming up a space that is predominantly wet.
Single zone underfloor heating is perfect for ensuring that you get instant heat beneath your feet. Underfloor heating systems offer radiant warmth, which means that it is direct. Rather than rely on a heating system that takes a long time to fill a wide space, you feel the effects of an underfloor system as soon as you step on it. It’s a great way to get drier more quickly!
Cheaper For You
While there is obviously an upfront cost to an wet underfloor heating system, it really does pay for itself very quickly. Underfloor heating of any kind is immediately more cost-effective than traditional radiation and central heating. That’s because you never have to power it on for long periods to feel the benefits. All it takes is a few seconds for underfloor heating to power up. You’ll be using less water and energy, and therefore, that means you’ll be spending less money on bills.
Underfloor heating in your bathroom will switch on and react as soon as you need it to. For example, if you want it to turn on after a shower, you simply need to program a thermostat to power up. Otherwise, if you are likely to use a bathroom on a cold morning – which we all do, sometimes – you can set your thermostat to warm up at a specific hour of the day. This means your floor will always be ready and warm for you. Tile and lino flooring can get very cold during the winter!
Easy to Use Single zone underfloor heating
With a single zone underfloor heating system, you only ever need to set up warmth in your bathroom alone. You can, of course, set up a multi-zone system for other rooms in your home, however, if you just need warmth in your bathroom, you can just opt for direct heat in that one space. The choice is yours!
Underfloor heating systems are very easy to install and are even easier to use. Therefore, whenever you need heat, you simply activate the thermostat. This means you won’t have to wait for minutes on end for a room to get cosy or comfortable. Your bathroom is at risk of being cold and damp for more than obvious reasons. Why stick with outdated radiator systems when an efficient and affordable underfloor system can do it all so much better for you?
