It’s been a cold winter in Utica, NY and all around central New York this year, and many people have sought escape from the rigors of the season in the warmth and comfort of their homes.

Unfortunately, not all areas of the home stay as balmy as others. There is likely no room where you can feel that winter chill as much as in your bathroom in Utica, NY— you’re often in various stages of undress, and much of the time you are also soaking wet. So you are not only totally exposed to the winter chill, but also feeling the effects compounded because of the dampness. You might stay warm in the heat of the shower or a hot bath, but that fades quickly when the water is turned off.

At Kevin Fahy Kitchens & Baths, we want to help everyone feel as comfortable as possible in their bathrooms all year round. Unfortunately, there is a lot more to heating a bathroom than putting a space heater on an extension cord and dragging it into the room. In fact, that’s about the worst way to do it. You’ve immediately created both a fire and electrical shock hazard, both of which can be fatal.

The proximity to water means you need to take special precautions in adding a heat source to the bathroom, so trust the experts at Fahy Kitchens & Baths. We will help you come up with the perfect means of adding warmth to your drafty space. We can install electric wall heaters, either mounted on the wall or inside of it, that will give you safe heat without the worry. They don’t use a lot of energy either, so they won’t make a big impression on your utility bill.

Infrared heaters are also a popular choice, most often mounted into the ceiling. They offer a heat very similar to the rays of the sun, so you can enjoy their healthy, radiant warmth much like sunshine. It’s not quite the same as a trip to the beach in the summer, but maybe second best. These heaters use direct infrared radiation to spread out their warmth and also don’t cost much to operate.

So before you make the mistake of bringing the wrong heater into the bathroom, give us a call. We’ll make sure you have the right heater for your own situation, while keeping you as safe as you should be in the sanctity of your home.
