No one likes to step out of a toasty-warm shower or bath into a freezing cold bathroom. The solution is a bathroom heater. These are some of your bathroom heating options.

Overhead Heaters

Overhead bathroom heaters are very popular and they are most commonly found in an all in one unit that combines the heater, lights and the exhaust fan. They are perfect for small bathrooms since they don't take up any floor or wall space. Two types of overhead heaters are available. You can buy a conventional heater or a heat lamp that radiates soothing infrared light.

Wall Mounted Heaters

Another option for bathroom heating is the wall mounted heater, also known as a panel heater. These heaters can be installed against the wall, but a unit built into the wall will save space in the bathroom and look like an integral part of the bathroom rather than just an add-on heater.

Radiant Heaters

Radiant heaters are also known as electric bar heaters or strip heaters and they are small bar type heaters that are installed on the wall of the bathroom. They are great as they produce a lot of heat in a very short amount of time. Radiant heaters are more expensive to run than most other types of heaters, so may be best for casual heating rather than longer term use. If you buy a plug-in unit, be sure the power cord is secured against the wall and water cannot touch it. The heater, too, should be mounted away from water and high enough to not pose a danger.

Underfloor Heating

One form of bathroom heating that is becoming more and more popular is underfloor heating. Underfloor heating needs to be installed when the concrete slab is being poured so it is best for new homes or extensions. You can also buy undertile floor heating. This type of heating can be installed after you remove your floor tiles when you're renovating your bathroom. Undertile heating will warm your tiles, but will not warm the room, but may be perfect if you live in a temperate climate or used in conjunction with a wall or ceiling heating unit.

Heated Towel Rails

If your bathroom doesn't require too much in the way of heating, heated towel rails are an ideal solution. They radiate gentle heat into the room and also heat and dry your towels. A warm towel may be all you need to motivate you to step out of the bath or shower.

Water and electricity don't mix. To be sure you're not endangering your family, have your bathroom heating installed by a qualified licensed electrician . It's not only safer -- it's the law.
