Infrared heaters in the bathroom – A new experience of heat

Infrared heaters are also called radiant or thermal wave heaters. This type of heating ensures a pleasant climate in the room while saving space and energy. Infrared heating is particularly suitable in the bathroom, as infrared heat provides a comfortable room climate with a pleasant temperature. The many possibilities bring a variety of advantages.

What is a bathroom infrared heater and how does it work?

Infrared heating is a modern electric heating system that generates pleasant and beneficial infrared radiation. The infrared heater can be used as a full-fledged heating system for the complete heating of your home or as an auxiliary heater for colder areas. Infrared heating is also suitable for use during the so-called transition period, in which switching on the central heating is not yet worthwhile.

Infrarotheizung function

The infrared heater heats more comfortably!

Unlike conventional heating, the infrared radiator not only emits heat to the air, but primarily heats the objects in the environment. The infrared waves penetrate through every material and body and release the heat to the depths. This is especially the case with furniture and solid bodies such as walls, which store the heat and release it back to the environment.

The infrared heater can be mounted on the wall as a wall heater or on the ceiling as a ceiling heater, and creates a pleasant feeling of warmth when in operation. The effect of infrared heating is comparable to that of pleasant sunlight. The air in the room remains fresher and cleaner compared to convection heating as the infrared heating does not cause dust particles to swirl up.

Types of infrared heaters for bathrooms

There are several ways to use infrared heating for the bathroom. Everything is possible from classic white models to a mirror heater or our picture heaters, and your creativity is given the greatest possible freedom.

Here are our bathroom recommendations:

In the bathroom, the mirror heater is particularly practical as it also fulfils the function of a mirror. Disguised as a bathroom mirror, the radiator is not noticeable at first sight and is suitable for both small and large bathrooms. Infrared heaters for bathrooms can be optionally modified with towel racks, bringing another advantage.

The mirror heater offers even another advantage because, thanks to the self-generated infrared heat, the mirror surface can no longer fog up. You therefore always have clear view and no smudges on the mirror.

With their very refined appearance, glass heaters are also a great way to equip a bathroom. A towel rack can also be installed here.

Our tip: Hang your towels or clothes on the towel rack while you shower, and they will be snug and warm when you’re done.

For smaller bathrooms, our Classic infrared heaters are also suitable for ceiling mounting. Due to its completely unobtrusive location on the ceiling, the infrared heater ensures an even heat distribution in the room.

Benefits of infrared heaters in the bathroom

The purchase of an infrared heater for your bathroom offers you a number of advantages:

Small spatial requirement:
In contrast to the conventional ugly radiators, the infrared heater requires little space because it lies flat against the wall or ceiling. In addition, the infrared heater can be functionally integrated into the room, for example, as a mirror heater. With a towel rack attached, the infrared heater can even enhance functionality. In addition, it is not only useful, but also looks really good thanks to its wide range of variants.

Advantage of thermal waves: The advantage of infrared heaters, also known as thermal wave heaters, is that solid objects or furniture do not restrict the heat effect and the heat can spread throughout the room.

High efficiency
Compared to conventional radiators, the infrared radiator converts much more energy into the desired heat. With normal heating systems, a maximum of 80 percent of the energy is converted into heat; with infrared heaters, 100 percent of the energy supplied is converted.

Preventing mould from forming
In rooms with high humidity levels, there is a major risk of mould forming on walls and ceiling. The fact that conventional heaters only heat the air and not the walls means that the heat cannot prevent mould from forming. The heat of the infrared heater penetrates into the masonry, thereby drying the walls. This will remove the basis of life for mould and effectively fight against existing mould.

Easy installation
Infrared heaters can be easily installed in the room. A specialist or special tool is not required, as the assembly is very simple.

Infrared heating – Healthy and beneficial
An infrared radiator is very well suited for asthmatics and allergy sufferers. As no dust is stirred up, mucous membranes are not irritated and the body shows no typical signs of allergy. In addition, humidity is maintained.

The heat of the infrared heater helps to relieve muscle tension and the associated pain. Infrared heaters operate on the same principle as the sun and are therefore beneficial to health. In the wellness and medical sector, infrared radiation has been successfully used for various forms of therapy for many years.
Tip: Everyone is familiar with the small infrared lamps used to prevent tension or similar symptoms.

Infrared heaters use less power than conventional electric heaters and can be controlled by intelligent thermostats to heat only when the room temperature drops. Since the objects in the room absorb the heat and store it for a long time, only very little heat is released to the outside during ventilation and the room remains pleasantly warm even after fresh air has been let in.

A pleasant feeling of heat
The infrared waves create a pleasant feeling of heat on the skin, which is very similar to the warmth of the sun. This has a relaxing and calming effect on the body.
