Home Design Guides: Bathroom, Climate control
In cooler climates, you may need a heater that heats quickly and which isn't affected by the room's humidity.
Depending on where you live and how you heat the rest of your house, you may need extra heating in your bathroom.
Hydronic heating uses heated water pumped through a network of pipes to radiators. It also works as under-floor heating.
Radiant bar heaters (or strip heaters) produce a lot of heat very quickly, and are ideal for areas like bathrooms, where heat is required for short amounts of time.
Kitchens and bathrooms can become very steamy and stuffy, and powered ventilation fans are an excellent way of providing fast, effective ventilation to these areas.
The size and speed of an exhaust fan can have an impact on its performance, but to choose a fan you also need to consider what it's going to be used for.
Heat lamps can be a good source of warmth for your bathroom, particularly in colder weather.
