Bathroom Heating Options Working with Heatpumps
What is the most efficient way to heat my bathrooms?
I’m currently renovating a 5100 sqft house from 1960 in Narrowsburg, New York. Currently, there are hydronic baseboard radiators fueled by oil. I’m planning to install mini-split heat pumps as a primary heat source. I’ll keep the oil heat as a backup. I’m also planning to upgrade the insulation with pour-in-place foam.
I’m told the bathrooms are too small for mini-splits. I’m considering installing FAR infrared film by Warm Wave under the new tile floor rather than baseboard or wall heater. Do you think this is a efficient and effective idea? I’m having trouble finding reliable information that isn’t only provided by a reseller or manufacturer about this technology.
