HEATING OUR BATHROOM

We’ve been making some changes in the house, minor, but needed.  Our bathroom is a small room behind the kitchen and the only heat we had in there was from water running through the back of our cook stove and into a large tank in the bathroom.

This is an old picture but still looks the same now. The blue tank in the back corner is a water tank. The white tank is our electric water heater.

Eddie decided the chimney that runs between the bathroom and kitchen needs to be re-lined so until that is completed we needed another source of heat in the bathroom this winter due to the temperatures dropping into the teens and the windchill making it worse.  We have a guest room downstairs off the kitchen which had a small propane heater that was perfect for that bedroom and would be the perfect fit for the bathroom.  My handyman husband did the switch and now we step out of the shower to a nice warm area.

The heater fit perfectly under the window and in front of the shower.

This is the bracket that the heater attached to and it fits snuggly to the wall and doesn’t take up much space.

In the summer we’ll turn the propane off and for this winter we don’t worry about frozen water pipes.
