than stepping out of a hot shower onto a cold bathroom floor. Many Sydneysiders spend their winters exactly like this, but they don’t have to.

Bathroom heaters aren’t expensive and ensure that your winter mornings get off to a better start. As these units are connected to your power supply, installing them as a DIYer is a no-no, as it can be a hazardous project. The experts at North Shore Electricians can effortlessly handle this for you.

Here’s our guide on bathroom heaters: their benefits, types, tips on choosing them, and our installation process.

Bathroom Heater Benefits

Having a bathroom heater installed provides several benefits for you and your family.

Comfort and Luxury

Having your bathroom heated before you even step foot in the door makes for a much more comfortable morning routine. You can even keep it on year-round for the optimum temperature. A heated bathroom also helps towels dry faster, eliminating dampness.

Health and Practicality

Bathrooms are notorious breeding grounds for mould and mildew due to the amount of moisture left in the air after use. Bathroom heaters remove this moisture quickly, significantly reducing the build-up of this form of bacteria.

Combine a heater with an exhaust fan, and the room becomes free of odours due to more efficient ventilation.

Types of Bathroom Heaters

There are two types of bathroom heaters:

Heat Lamps

Heat lamps provide instant heat to the bathroom, and many come with different temperature levels so you can determine your own comfort level. Upgrade to a 3-in-1 unit with an exhaust fan and lights, ideal for a smaller bathroom with limited ceiling space.

Plus, as a typical LED heat light bulb uses only 200-250 watts of power, it’s more cost-efficient than a space or radiant bar heater.

Heated Towel Rails

Primarily used for drying towels, especially in winter, they also provide some ambient warmth, though not as much as heat lamps do.

The benefit is that towels dry faster, removing that musky wet-dog smell that occurs when they don’t dry properly.

Heated towel rails come in various styles and designs and can add a touch of class to any bathroom.

Choosing the Right Bathroom Heater

There are several things to consider when choosing the best bathroom heater for your home:

  • Size: some houses have large luxurious bathrooms and can accommodate multiple bathroom heaters, while smaller ones can benefit from 3-in-1 units.
  • Features: choose from a simplistic on/off unit or upgrade to one with temperature controls, timers, fans and lights.
  • Style: today’s shoppers have the luxury of choosing from a wide range of bathroom heaters in various sizes, colours, and materials.

That’s a lot to consider. Why not leave that task up to us? After only a few minutes of inspection, we can advise you on the best solution for your bathroom.

Our Bathroom Heater Installation Process

Here’s how North Shore Electricians approach bathroom heater installations in Sydney.

Inspection and Advice

The first thing we do is visit your home and inspect your bathroom. We’ve been installing bathroom heaters across Sydney for decades and can offer you the best advice in record time. We’ll then provide you with a detailed quote, including parts and materials, with no hidden charges.

Begin the Install

Once you say ‘go,’ we’ll get to work. First, we’ll need access to the bathroom ceiling, either via stepladder or from above. We’ll prepare a hole for the unit to be installed and connect it to the relevant wiring.

Testing, Tidying and Certification

When everything’s installed and ready to go, we’ll test that it’s performing at its peak and give you a step-by-step tutorial on how to use it properly.

After we’ve determined you’re happy with the installation, we’ll tidy up behind so everything appears as it did before we arrived. Our final task is to provide you with a Certificate of Compliance of Electrical Work (CCEW), which needs to also go to your energy provider and the Department of Fair Trading. 

Follow-up and Inspections

Our electrical services continue well after the product is installed. We arrange annual inspections with you to ensure everything performs as expected and that nothing needs upgrading or replacing.
