Do you actually need heated floors in your bathroom or are they more of a luxury you could do without? The short answer is no, you don’t really need it, but there are three really good reasons you should get Hotwire anyway.
Let’s take a look at each one!
Reason #1: Underfloor Heating Makes Your Bathroom More Comfortable
Cold weather, wet bathroom tiles, and water—sounds like the perfect recipe for a truly uncomfortable showering experience, right? Well, you won’t have to worry about any of that if you had an underfloor heating system in your bathroom.
But wouldn’t a normal forced air heater be able to do the same thing?
Not exactly. Unlike fan-based systems, underfloor heating uses radiant heat, which means two things:
- No wind hitting your wet body after you get out of the shower
- Even heating instead of uncomfortably hot spots close to the fan and uncomfortably cold spots away from it
Reason #2: Underfloor Heating Makes Your Bathroom Floors Less Slippery
Underfloor heating also helps dry your bathroom floors faster and more evenly than forced air systems ever could. This, in turn, effectively eliminates slippery spots that could cause accidents and serious physical injuries.
Reason #3: Underfloor Heating Prevents the Growth of Harmful Organisms
Another benefit of keeping your bathroom floors dry is it inhibits the growth of mould and other harmful bacteria that could cause all sorts of medical conditions, including:
- Allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis
- Allergic fungal sinusitis
- Hypersensitivity pneumonitis
Couple this with a good heated towel rail to ensure your bathroom towels are also warm and dry at all times and you’ve got the perfect setup for keeping the overall moisture level in your bathroom to a minimum.
