I always thought it was a myth that bigger people dont feel the heat but someone said they have more fat which keeps you warm -still not sure if that is medically correct, but feel the cold something dreadful this year.
I brave it.
But I am in the mind that one can warm it just in a few minutes with a little fan heater, before getting undressed, once in that shower...life is sweet :)
If I have had a really bad nights sleep, I leave it to wake me up, snap me into the real world :) lol.
No! I do not need it!!! However,I know that my son in Melbourne definitely does,He is very safety conscious,being a chef,so it is a very safe system which he has bought!
Oh! Heavens above! I DO love North Qld!!!
No we don't. Might look into it as the weather gets even colder. It's our first winter in this town and it's colder here than where we used to live. There's not a whole lot of room in the bathroom for a heater though and we've never had one before.
You can get an overhead one. An electrician might be able to use the light connection in your bathroom to install a light/heater combo. If you have solar panels I wouldn't feel too guilty about installing something like this.
We have heating in the bathroom in form of heat lights. they are great. Turning them on a few minutes before taking a shower can warm up the bathroom for when you get out of the shower. But in the past, I didn't have them, and braved the cold.
I dont have heating but have a big window that gets the morning sun and its a tiny bathroom so the steam heats it up enough to comfortably shower and get try. I do love those heating lights though and would def have one if the room was bigger... a bath last thing at night in winter before snuggling into bed is just heaven (and reduces the need for an early morning freezing shower)
No heating, nice hot water shower, followed by vigorous towelling off and run to the bedroom to get dressed. No heating encourages you to move faster, good for the metabolism, the circulation and your lungs!
I have an overhead light/heater combo which is still not sufficient heat for me. I hate the cold. One has to be very careful with heaters in the bathroom. When I was a student, oneof my fellow students was electrocuted when a bar heater she had on the side of the bath fell in. What a waste of a young life!
I don't. Don't need it and wouldn't want one. No matter how cold it is, I immediately wipe down theglass and tiles in the showercand get rid of the wwater on the floor before stepping out to wipe down. Yes, occasionally it can be a little nippy but I much prefer this to the heat. Our house is pretty well insulated so most times it's just a dress and light cardigan inside. If I need to go to the shopping centres, it's a light top and trousers because I can't stand the heat in these places. I do have a couple of skivvies I wear if going somewhere I know will be really cold. And you're right Finy - the more fat you have covering you, the less you feel the cold.
