For any bathroom, it really would be an advantage if we could hang our
cold towels on one of those wonderfully warm luxury towel warmers, and allow
them to get fresh and crisp again. These genuinely useful bathroom
accessories help to easily provide bathers with nice, warm, heated towels.
Towel warmers are quite simple to put in and help to make your bathroom look
more attractive and classy as well.
These days, there is a wide array of luxury towel warmers, designer
radiators and heated towel rails sold, and these come in a variety of shapes
and sizes as well. You could opt for those which have designs that are able
to either hold several towels or hang one at a time. The towel rails
available today also come in interesting shapes, colors and styles, ranging
from classic-looking ones, to more modern and high-tech variants. With so
much to choose from, it would help if you select one that complements your
bathroom’s existing styles, and also fits well in your bath area. Generally,
these bathroom accessories are crafted to work well with a home’s central
heating system. These are also equipped with knobs and adjustment modes that
help you regulate the amount of heat for drying your wet towels and clothes.
Basically, you could also opt for a plumbed-in or electric heated towel
rail. According to home heating experts, a plumbed-in heated towel rail is
more affordable, and this can easily be connected or plumbed into your
current central heating system, just like any other type of radiator.
However, you need to have in advance the proper pipe work in place, to
enable its easy installation. A plumbed-in towel rail will only run whenever
the central heating system in your home is switched on. Electric heated
towel rails on the other hand, come equipped with a specially designed
heating solution that needs to be connected to your electric power supply.
This means that it will operate independently from the main central heating
apparatus, and can be switched on or off depending on the weather or climate
conditions in your area. An electric heated towel rail however, is
considered to be more costly than a plumbed-in design. If you’re having a
tough time deciding on which of the two are good for your bathroom, then you
could opt instead for a dual-fuel heated towel rail. This variety operates
just like any standard radiator, so when your home’s central heating system
is on; it gets its power from it. However, during hot and damp seasons, you
could opt to connect this to your electric power sockets. Dual-fuel towel
heaters are widely popular these days.
For additional advice on installation and other heater options, it helps to
ask for assistance from a professional heating engineer. This person could
help you choose the appropriate models and designs, as well as advise you on
helpful power-saving tips and guidelines. A heating engineer will also
assist you in locating the best spot for positioning your heated towel rail.
For example, if your electric, plumbed-in or dual-fuel heated towel rail
serves only as a secondary heat source, the heating engineer could help you
in properly wiring these, as well as in positioning the heater in such a way
that it effectively heats up the room and does not pose as a fire or
electrocution hazard. However, if the towel rail you buy will serve as your
primary source of heat, then he could help you place it on the largest
external wall of your bathroom for instance.
Currently, there are a lot of heated towel rail designs and materials to
choose from. Consumers could opt for rails made from stainless steel or
brass, although many opt for chrome towel rails. While most view brass to be
a quite costly model, towel rail experts say that this type generally works
well and is tougher than the stainless steel towel heater, since it does not
easily corrode. There are also other heaters made from aluminum and cast
iron, which help to create a more traditional look feel to the bathroom.
