Electric heating offers versatility in various spaces, from your living room to your kitchen and even your bedroom. But what about installing an electric radiator in your bathroom?
The answer is a resounding yes, with some important considerations specific to Sunflow products. In this blog post, we’ll delve into the topic to help you understand the rules and regulations for bathroom heating while highlighting the benefits of choosing a Sunflow electric radiator.
Key Considerations for Installing an Electric Radiator in Your Bathroom
When it comes to installing electrical appliances in the bathroom, there are regulations to ensure safety in a potentially hazardous environment. To make an informed decision, keep the following factors in mind before selecting an electric radiator for your bathroom:
IP (Ingress Protection) ratings indicate an appliance’s level of protection against solid objects and liquids. For bathroom installation, a radiator must have at least an IPX4 rating, ensuring it is waterproof and can withstand splashes of water. Prioritise checking the IP rating of any Sunflow product you consider for your bathroom’s electric heating solution.
Bathrooms are divided into specific zones that determine where electrical appliances can be safely installed. These zones include:
- Zone 0: Areas within your bathroom occupied by the sink, bath, or shower.
- Zone 1: The space directly above your shower or bath, extending vertically at a height of 2.25m.
- Zone 2: The area stretching 0.6m from the edge of Zone 1, encompassing the surroundings of your bath or shower.
- Outside Zones: Any space in your bathroom outside the aforementioned zones.
Our Sunflow’s bathroom heaters are suitable for installation in Zones 2 and outside zones. For more detailed information you can you can book a survey here.
Benefits of Choosing a Sunflow Electric Radiator for Your Bathroom
Opting for electric heating in your bathroom brings several advantages. Let’s explore the benefits of selecting a Sunflow electric radiator:
- Independent Heating: Sunflow electric radiators function as standalone appliances, enabling individual control. You can customise your bathroom heating schedule to align with your needs, reducing energy waste, and minimising running costs.

The radiant heat directly warms people and surfaces, penetrating walls to keep them dry and prevent moisture buildup. This makes electric radiators an excellent choice for damp-prone areas such as bathrooms.
