Top rated bathroom wall heaters

The washroom is arguably the most overlooked rooms in the modern household for heating despite it being one of the most used. Some of this can be attributed to them not being attached to the central heating system, but of course, that’s not always the case. Sometimes there are space limitations where a big and bulky space heater may effect leg room. That’s why many consumers instead opt for something wall mounted that’s out the way, compact, and convenient.

This is as mentioned above, a wall mounted product that runs on an electric fan and is designed to ensure the space taken up is at a minimum. And it does that well with a reasonably flat design and product dimensions of 4.8 inches by 13.2 inches by 18.1 inches.

Power wise, this provides 1500 watts and could be the go to option for those of you wanting something to heat up a small sized room quickly and quietly. The noise levels are very low which is important for some, and the exterior design and colors used would enable it to blend in well will plenty of modern restrooms.

The Stiebel Eltron CK 15E falls into what we consider the mid range category that we generally define by affordability and functionality. This is certainly a unit worth keeping tabs on.

You also have the choice of getting something even more out the way in the form of something attached to the ceiling. Now, there are numerous low profile models to be found of this type, some more impressive than others, but after looking at several of the leading products in the industry we chose the one listed below.

Broan Model 157Broan Model 157

The model 157 from Broan is one of those ceiling heating appliances that are designed specifically to blend in, and looking at it, you can see how it does that. It certainly will manage to keep a low profile whilst being completely out the way, remaining compact and saving much needed space. What’s more, it only extends around three inches from the ceiling which is not really a lot.

You get 1250 watts power from this, which is great for medium sized bathrooms. Not only that, but it could be used for different purposes such as heating up a garage. They are quite versatile providing you have the required electrical box fitted into the room.

If you’re worried about spending too much cash, you need not worry. With the 157, you can expect results even on a low budget.

Restroom radiators

Radiators are often oil filled and are ideal for small spaces because they produce an effective amount of power whilst remaining efficient. Not only that, but they tend to be of a small design and fit in tight spaces without being an obstruction. They come with some great features including varying temperature settings and numerous safety functions as a precaution.

DeLonghi TRN0812TDeLonghi TRN0812T

A popular brand name called DeLonghi,  combined with a great set of specs is the formula for finding highly rated bathroom heater. The TRN0812T brings just that. Looking into consumer reports around the web, there is quite a lot of positive feedback which is a good sign to start with and suggests you can expect at least a certain degree of quality from it.

Looking deeper into the feature list, we find it has a built in energy saving timer which is great for those looking for something environmentally friendly.

Users get a huge amount of choice in how and when they warm up a bathroom with an impressive ninety six differing settings which can be used to time and program it to turn on at various parts of your day.

The design is portable and not too big making it a great fit for small rooms. And looking at the average price tag, you’re not going to need to spend too much purchasing it either.

Thoughts and comments from the community

  1. Some of these are fantastic. I recently got a wall hung option which is great, and takes up minimal space when compared to our old radiator fittings. You’d be surprised how little adjustments can make all the difference!

    1. Yes, changing up the heating appliances you use both in terms of size and type can absolutely transform your living space. I have done similar with one of the smallest rooms in my house, and it’s surprisingly spacious upon completion.
