Choose from Different Types of Heated Towel Rails:
Electric Towel Rails
Electric towel rails are great as they give you the ultimate control over the heat in your bathroom. These towel rails are convenient as you only turn them on or off as you require them meaning they are not dependent on your central heating system. This is ideal for the summer months as it means you can warm your towels without having your entire heating system being on. Electric towel rails are also cost effective to install as they don’t require further plumbing to add them to your bathroom. This makes them a very popular choice for modern bathroom spaces.
Centrally Heated Towel Rails
Though the electric towel rails may sound ideal you do need to remember to turn them on and of course wait for them to heat up! If you tend to be a bit forgetful then a centrally heated towel rail will suit you better as you can pre set your homes heating so that the towel rail will be on at the times of day you may shower or bathe. The down side of this system of course is through the summer when your heating isn’t on you won’t benefit from comforting warm towels to hand.
Dual Fuel Heated Towel Rails
For the ultimate luxury choose dual fuel towel rails which combine the best of the above two towel rail types. You can use your homes main heating system through the winter and then have the ability to only heat your bathroom in the summer as required.
