Should I get a heated mirror for my bathroom?

Heated mirrors are a great way to warm your bathroom, but standard ones can encourage humidity, leading to problems down the line. We have found a solution which heats even better than standard models but avoids this inevitable downside.

Mirror infrared heating panels

Mirror-finish infrared heating panels are an efficient, space-saving alternative. They sit almost flat against the wall and emit powerful warmth within minutes of being turned on. Unlike other bathroom mirrors, infrared panels do not fog up, so they are perfect for bathrooms.

What makes infrared heating different is that it works through radiation, not convection. Infrared panels emit radiant heat, warming objects (and people) directly, rather than space. Infrared radiation is completely safe – it is the reason we feel warm in the sun, even when the air temperature is low.

Ironically, radiators are convection heaters, and they work by heating air. They are less efficient than infrared heating because they work by heating the air around you. This means the heat is easily lost through draughts and through the walls of a building.

With infrared, furniture, walls and floors absorb heat and release it slowly back into the room over time. This means you will benefit even after you have turned the heating off. It also helps prevent damp and mould by drying out walls and stopping conditions which encourage condensation.

The way the panels work means they are also are cheap to run, because they require less energy input to achieve the same heat output as other forms of heating.

Our panels all come with 5 year warranties and proven performance.

  1. Heated bathroom mirrors are a great way of making your morning rituals more efficient. Mirror infrared heating panels are a great alternative to ordinary heated bathroom mirrors. I like your post and I am happy to share this post to my friends.

  2. We bought one of these infrared heater mirrors for our main bathroom. We had a faulty electric heater in their previously so needed a new replacement. We thought we would try the heated mirror so we could free up the space in the bathroom where the heater was. It is lovely. It warms the room very nicely and also my husband loves it because the mirror doesn’t fog up because it gets warm. A great idea and glad we went for it!

    Thanks.

    1. Hi Sue,
      When I redid my property I installed a heated mirror in my bathroom. Despite the mirror being very oversized for the space, it throws out an incredible amount of heat and as you say, it doesn’t fog up. A really nice solution for any bathroom!

  3. Installing a heated mirror is a great idea if you have a well used bathroom. We live in a 3 bed house and there is myself and my husband and then the three kids. Unfortunately the layout of the house is a bit unique and as such we only have one main bathroom. Previously when the bathroom gets used in the morning the mirror was foggy from when the first person went in to the last. Now though, we have installed a heated mirror we don’t suffer from this anymore. We turn on the heater mirror when the first person goes in and by the time you are out of the shower the mirror is completely mist free, so it is actually functional as a mirror. Obviously it provides a nice level of heat too but the main thing for us was making sure the bathroom could actually be used! If you are looking for a heater mirror then the ones they sell on here I would recommend. Looks great and also it is a true mirror, there is no distortion that you get with cheap mirrors.
