The next few months are expected to be one of the coldest Melbourne has seen in a long time, and it’s only fair that you’re fully prepared for a chilly winter. Checking that your heating system works fine is the core of this preparation, but there’s other things that you can do to ensure winter goes by comfortably. Installing heat lamps in your home in one such, time-tested, cost-effective method that you can use.
Commonly referred to as a heat lamp or heater unit, these light fixtures do two or three jobs in one. These are incandescent light fixtures that light up a space, while also providing a focused source of radiant heat. These lights are typically used in bathrooms and showers to offer reasonable warmth in spaces that tend to be the coldest in winters, and often come equipped with an exhaust fan too. These lights heat up a space fairly quickly and are more economical to use for short spans too, such as when using the shower.
Heat lamps generally consume less electricity than bar heaters, making them a cost-efficient purchase. These are ideal for domestic use, and most suitable for smaller spaces such as bathrooms, since the heat they provide will concentrate on a specific area. Such heat is ideal for keeping warm right after stepping out of the shower and drying up, since this is when you would need some concentrated heat the most, whilst standing in the same spot.
