Where to install the radiator in the bathroom?


  The choice of location for the bathroom radiator must be well thought out, as it is a key decision that will ensure our thermal comfort and safety. Space in the bathroom in current property development or in old buildings of previous years is often limited, which makes it necessary to look at various solutions when choosing a place for the bathroom radiator. It is therefore worth knowing a few key principles to guide you and the options for functional bathroom radiators available on the market.




  A general rule of thumb for choosing the location for radiators is to place the heating unit where there is the greatest heat loss. Therefore, the vast majority of radiators are installed under the window. In line with this - the ideal place is also adjacent to the entrance door to the room. Have you ever wondered why radiators are under windows? The cold glass lowers the temperature of the entire room. In the 20th century, to combat the feeling of cold and to keep the room warm, radiators were always placed under the window. The heat of the radiator creates a kind of curtain that protects the occupants from the cold air. Following this principle, we should choose the coolest area of the room so that those using the bathroom are comfortable.

  Another rule of thumb is to locate the heater as far away from the bath or wash basin as possible. We are talking about a distance of one metre. In the immediate vicinity of a shower or washbasin - for safety reasons, radiators supplied with water from the central heating system should be placed at least 20 centimetres away from these devices, and if it is an electric heater, it should be at least 60 centimetres. Why is this distance required? There are two reasons:

The first is the issue of corrosion, by bringing the radiator into contact with water or agents that we use to clean bathroom fittings or ceramics in contact with the radiator, these can destroy the radiator coating and damage it.

The second is a matter of concern in particular for heaters with an electric heater, which must not be close to a water source, as they can pose a danger to bathroom users.

As far as the minimum distance from the floor is concerned, on the other hand, it should be 10 cm - this distance prevents dust from being drawn up. This is also the optimum distance from the window sill - it ensures the free flow of heated air. If the window sill is between 3 and 7 cm wide, the radiator can be placed closer to the window sill.
