Are heated towel rails a good idea?
They are, for both bathroom heating, en-suite spaces and cloakroom suites too. Heated towel rails have many benefits that you can enjoy all year round. They help to take the chill out of your bathroom in the winter and supply warm and dry towels at any time of the year. So whether you’re showering down after a workout, or waking up to sub-zero temperatures, your heated towel rail can be used to provide just what you need when you need it, whatever the weather.
Do heated towel rails heat the bathroom?
When compared to a radiator of similar size, a heated towel rail is usually not capable of the same heat output as its radiator counterpart - and they can take a little longer to reach their top temperature too. However, as long as your towel rail is sized correctly - and you can use our BTU Calculator to do this - it should still be more than capable of making your bathroom a warm and inviting space.
How do heated towel rails work?
How your new towel rails works will depend largely on the type of towel rail you purchase. At BestHeating there are three distinct types of towel rail - hydronic, electric and dual fuel.
Hydronic heated towel rails are connected to your central heating - just as a standard radiator is. Your boiler will then pump hot water round your heating system and through each of the rails on your towel radiator - warming your towels and warming your room too.
Electric towel rails - as the name probably suggests - are not connected to the central heating system but are powered by a hardwired socket that uses electricity from your mains power supply. They are filled with a heating solution which is warmed by means of a heating element. This type of towel rail offers you several benefits and they can be used without the need to switch on your central heating - making them ideal summer heating appliances - as you can still have warm towels without heating your entire home.
Dual fuel towel rails are a combination of both hydronic and electric towel rails and can operate alongside your central heating or independently from it, depending upon how you choose to use them. Featuring a connection to your mains central heating and also supplied with an electric heating element too - these clever towel rails make best use of both approaches to heating your bathroom space and are ideal for when you just want to warm the bathroom and not the whole house.
Do I really need a towel rail?
That depends on what you want to achieve. Research suggests that the quicker a towel dries the less bacteria is formed on it - and a heated towel rail is sure to speed up the drying process of your towels whether you make use of it in a bathroom or kitchen. This is probably more important now than ever before - with cleanliness and awareness of germs heightened since the coronavirus pandemic.
Whether you really need a heated towel rail does depend on a few factors, though. If you have a large family and lots of people making use of the bathroom space, ensuring you have space for a large number of towels in the bathroom is a must. A similar approach can be considered for ensuites and cloakrooms too - where clean and dry towels are always a welcome sight.
A radiator will of course provide warmth and comfort and you can drape a towel or two over the top of the larger appliances, but nothing quite compares with the practicality that a heated towel rail provides in a bathroom space. Ample room for towels and a heat output high enough to warm the space it's in is enough reason to answer “yes” to the question, do I really need a towel rail?
