How long can leave a towel warm on?

A dry towel warmer is meant to gently warm your towels while you’re bathing or showering. They will offer a bit of warm for the rest of the bathroom too, but it should be noted that it’s primarily a towel heater and not designed for warming the space. A heated towel rack will warm up fairly quickly, taking between 5 minutes and 30 minutes depending on ambient temperature. To ensure your towels are warm and comfortable, turn your home towel warmer on a few minutes before you’re ready to hop into the bath or shower. You can choose to leave your home towel warmer on afterward as well. The rail heat should also help to dry used towels and stop then smelling musty, particularly throughout the cooler months when it’s harder to dry thick fabrics, especially inside.

How do electric towel rails work?

There are few different types of heated towel rails including electric, liquid filled and hydronic towel rails. A standard electric heated towel rail will usually offer minimal running costs when used correctly and generate a heat of up to 55 degrees Celsius. When you place your bathroom towels over the heated rails, the towel will actually insulate the racks that it’s covering to help preserve the heat and direct into the fabric. This helps to reduce your running costs and makes them very efficient warmers. You can also attach a timer to your rails to easily manage heat time and costs.

Hydronic towel rails are designed for dual purpose: heating both your towels and the rest of the bathroom. They will need to be connected to a hydronic heating system which runs throughout the rest of your house and they work by pumping heated water through the rails. The time it takes for the rails to reach maximum temperature will depend on the hydronic boiler that you’re running and whether the water is already hot before it’s pumped through the rails.

Liquid filled heated towel rails are similar to hydronic towels rails in that they also pump warm liquid through the racks, but they use an electric element to heat the liquid. They are supplied pre-filled and need only be plugged into an electrical outlet to start working immediately. On average, it takes about an hour for the temperature to reach its maximum output.
