Do you want to install underfloor heating throughout your home or just in the bathroom? This has many advantages and disadvantages. It is therefore essential to find the right solution for your project. This is an important decision, which must be made before building or renovating your home because the ground must be provided to accommodate it. Therefore, it is always helpful to consult an expert first to examine and estimate the various possibilities and solutions adapted to your project.

What Are The Advantages Of Underfloor Heating In The Bathroom?

Equipping your bathroom with underfloor heating certainly has many advantages. The comfort of the customer is always our first priority. In this regard, underfloor heating is the best solution; it provides constant and pleasant heat, your bare feet never step on a cold floor, and the room temperature is always comfortable. The great advantage of underfloor heating is that it is a low-temperature solution: given its reduced consumption, you benefit from constant heat without consuming a lot of energy. However, I would advise you not to limit yourself to installing underfloor heating only in your bathroom but to equip several rooms with it, or even the whole of your home. This is much more economical because, in this case, the whole installation can be kept at a low temperature, and you have to make less use of ancillary elements such as pump groups or other thermostats.

What Are The Disadvantages Of Underfloor Heating In The Bathroom?

It isn’t easy to achieve the desired temperature of 21 ° -24 ° only with underfloor heating in a bathroom. As sanitary facilities and furniture primarily take up this room’s floor space, the available area is often too small to provide the necessary heat. It is different for the living room, where the unoccupied floor space is often more critical and should not be as hot as in the bathroom. The advantage is that, to overcome this ‘shortage’, it suffices to supplement the underfloor heating with an aesthetic solution. Such as a towel radiator or decorative radiator, the whole remaining perfectly uncluttered. As this is the best solution in terms of comfort and aesthetics, I see it more as an advantage than a disadvantage.

Underfloor Heating: Advisable Or Not?

In general, we can say that underfloor heating is often the most practical solution, both aesthetically and ecologically and in terms of comfort, if you equip several rooms in your home with it. You thus benefit from a constant and pleasant room temperature in the house, the supply temperature remaining very low. Therefore, it is interesting to install underfloor heating in your bathroom, even if it is not enough on its own to reach the desired temperature. It allows you to permanently maintain a pleasant heat in the room without consuming a lot of energy, and you can add a more aesthetic solution than the classic radiator, such as a towel warmer or a decorative radiator. 

However, do not forget to consult an expert in technical solutions and green energy before any construction or renovation. Together, you will be able to quantify in detail the best possible combinations for your project. This will give you the certainty of choosing the cheapest and most comfortable tailor-made solution.
