A customer had asked if I knew of a heater unit that could be placed in a shower area. This is a custom home with a rather large stall shower area. It would have to be ceiling mounted. Does anyone know of such a unit that is designed for this type of application.I am not sure if a heater is permitted in this type of location. Thanks ..ToHo

I have just finished the rough on a large remodel, that used Tile Warmers, in the Master Bathroom. But they have to be installed well in advance of the finish work.

How about a steam shower unit, I think they can be installed as add-ons.

ToHo,

I also had this same request a year ago. The only thing I could find was a radiant heat waterproof panel that would mount on the ceiling and drop down about an inch and it was UGLY. It required a seperate remote t-stat and gfi protection. I don't remember the company that made them, but i found it doing a search for bathroom heaters.

The location of the heater would be in the shower area(wet location).

ToHo, I don't know where your customer is from. But in my shower, if I put the water on while I'm getting undressed. The water is hot enough to warm me. Maybe you should get the plumber to lable the HOT & COLD knobs.

I hope you can enjoy the humor.

But, sorry I personnaly have not been asked of such a heater. The only heaters I've ever installed aside from the central unit was your basic H/V/L types in bathroms. But I'm sure there are tons of different units that I have not seen yet.
Good luck in your search!!!

The problem that the customer explained to me was that when they are not directly under the water in the shower ..they feel cold.The shower enclosure is bigger than a standard shower stall.I can definitly appreciate the humor. You never know what someone is going to ask you to install!!!

I have a 50 gallon water heater which I have set RATHER HIGH. When I take a shower I have to be careful I don't burn myself, but I don't "feel cold".

Dave

BTW This is best done in a small bathroom with the exhaust fan off so the whole room gets warm .
