Towel warmers- opt for eco-friendly ones to be environmentally responsible

The very nomenclature, ‘towel warmers’ conjures up visions of large, fluffy, warm and ‘toasty’ towels and it is enough to make you want to jump into the shower right away! But, seriously speaking, towel warmers have become practical necessities rather than mere luxuries due to a variety of reasons. Firstly, in perpetually cold climates or in colder weather, taking a bath or shower becomes a lot less uncomfortable if you have warm towels to wrap yourself with immediately. Secondly, it is a given fact that a host of bacteria thrive in moist, damp conditions and towels left to dry by themselves or dried improperly are ideal breeding grounds for such bacteria. Towels dried properly on these warmers get rid of the dampness and thus prevent viruses from transmitting to your body. These racks are also useful for drying out other items of clothing like coats, jackets, bathing suits or kitchen dishcloths. Although not designed as room heaters towel warmers do their bit in reducing dampness in the room and are especially useful in poorly-ventilated bathrooms.
The primary concern of the home owner while shopping for a towel warmer would be the comfort, price and style and fortunately, the market is flooded with a huge variety of these devices. They all come with their unique style patterns and configurations and Myson is considered to be a leading brand amongst them. Hydronic or electrical towel warmers, heated towel rails and towel radiators are all manufactured by this company offering durability, functionality and elegance. These devices can be floor-mounted or wall-mounted and are available in many hues and finishes. They can be brass-plated or chrome-plated, stainless steel or nickel-coated. Hydronic ones have to be connected to the central heating system whereas the electrical ones are either hardwired into the electrical system of the house or simply plugged in. the plug-in ones are very convenient as you can simply use any nearby power outlet in whichever room you want to.  But, whether hydronic or electrical, a trained technician or electrician has to be hired to do the job.
Towel warmers impart a gentle, comfortable heat to towels and not a blistering, scalding heat which would make the usage of the towels very uncomfortable. For this reason, they are also frequently used in warming baby blankest, bedding and related clothing.
First-time buyers should settle for reputed brands like Myson as the quality is assured and one can choose from a wide variety of models according to one’s budget. Lovely colours like silver, gold, brown, black or white and stylish designs add to the aesthetics of any bathroom. Where towel warmers, towel radiators are concerned one should settle for quality even if one has to pay a little bit extra rather than a cheap one where the quality may be substandard. Of late, eco-friendly and energy-efficient towel warmers have also made their foray into the market and as far as possible one should try and opt for such models to do one’s bit for the environment.
