What do Heated Towel Rails do?

The towel rail is used to heat up and in some cases dry the towel. The reason that these are so popular is that of the warmth factor. Take this scenario, for example, you have the most relaxing shower and step out into the chilly room temperatures. This ends the euphoric feeling of your shower with an abrupt slap to the face. Your rejuvenating shower has just been ruined and now you are miserable.

Should you plan on having the towel warmer fitted to the wall or rising up from the floor. With freestanding towel racks, you have a choice and need to ask yourself these questions.

Do I want my towel warmer to be;

  1. Freestanding
  2. Fixed Fitting

Now we know if it's fixed or freestanding we can work out the style of towel warmer.

Take into account if your choice was freestanding its best to position the towel warmer near the shower. You will be limited with freestanding as the heating rack will need a power source.

Fixed fitting heated rails are by far the most popular choice and very common for the simple fact that they sit nicely against the wall. Always plan your heated towel rail to be placed in a position that is close to the shower, this is to get the most from the towel rail heat system.

Are Heated Towel Rails Worth the Investment?

Our vote counts is a leading seller of heated towel rails. Conducting an internal poll, we discovered that staff members were all agreed that yes the investment is worth it. If you can’t take our word for it then whose word can you take?

The towel warmers are worth the initial investment. It's one of those things that the first time you use them all doubts will be washed away. It takes just one chilly morning to get the full picture and realise that you need a towel warmer rack in your life.

Let’s look at power consumption when running the towel rails. You can buy timers that work with your heat rail to reduce run time and reduce costs. Measuring the power consumption with gas supplied rails use BTU’s or British Thermal Units to measure usage.

Do you want to run one of these heat rack systems;

  • Electric Towel Rails
  • Gas Supplied Towel Rails

Once you have selected the type of power source for your towel rack it’s easy to work out the rough estimate of consumption. Larger bathrooms or bathrooms with multiple windows can reduce the heating quality of the towel heater rack. Taking into account the size of the bathroom and the extra factors you can judge how many BTU’s you will use.

If you don’t have the slightest clue what BTU’s you will consume by using a heated towel rail we are just on the other end of the phone, call us for expert assistance.

Pro Tip: If you have multiple bathrooms or en-suites and use towel rails, remember to double the estimated usage. Simple tip but we find many people with multiple heat rails don’t multiply the power estimates.

Does This Affect the Towel Quality?

Your towels are not toasted, each time you heat the towel it warms up and provides you with a toasty feeling when using it. The towel doesn’t burn or get crusty if you continue to heat the towel rail while it's on the holding rack.

Every modern bathroom should include a luxurious towel heater to pamper after every shower.

The popularity of different towel warmer racks depends on the look of the heating rail. We must admit that it makes little sense to splurge on a heating rack for towels as the towel will be covering the rail most of the time.
