Buying a Towel Radiator? – Consider these carefully


Towel radiators or heated towel rails are fast becoming a common item in homes- not only in European countries but also in places where winters are quite chilly. Though installing a towel warmer rack is not a very difficult job yet it is advisable to carefully consider few things before installing them so as to derive maximum benefit out of it.

Color and design of the towel rack should be in accordance with the interiors of your home. An edgy and unusual design of the bathroom towel warmer will make your bathroom accentuate and look different. However, if you prefer a simple looking bathroom you can opt for an unobtrusive design of the towel radiator so that it mixes easily with the rest of the décor.

The color of the heated towel rails should be selected in a manner to complement the color of the bathroom walls. These bathroom towel warmers are also available in funky colors with various finishes. You should be careful enough to choose one that does not hamper the functionality of the heated towel rails and should match with the rest of the bathroom.    

The size of the towel radiators should depend upon the amount of hanging space you require for your towels. If there are individual bathrooms in every room you may not need a very big towel rails for them but for a communal bathroom you will need a bigger towel warmer which can accommodate good number of towels. Apart from the above, the available wall space in the bathroom is also very important in deciding the design and size of the towel radiators.

The power specification printed on the heated towel rails packing should be carefully examined so as to ensure that the heating capacity is enough for heating the entire bathroom if your bathroom heating is also dependent on the hating of the towel radiators. However, in bathrooms where other sources of heating such as under floor heaters are installed, a lower capacity towel warmer will suffice as the bathroom heating is not solely dependent on them.

 The frequency of usage of the towel warmer racks is also very important in deciding the type of heating system required. A dual fuel electric heating system will be necessitated if the towel radiators will be in use throughout the year whereas hot water system hydronic towel radiators can be used for smaller usage only during the winters.

It is always advisable to select from trusted and reputed brands and not get carried away by false claims made by unrecognized brands. Few of the trusted brands in heated towel rails are Myson, Runtal Radiators and Wesaunard Towel warmers. You can also take help from the internet in finding trusted producers of towel radiators. Selecting the right type of heated towel rails will not only ensure that you get the best results out of it but it will also give you the right value for your money.
