When you talk about luxury, you have to include towel warmers. But in addition to the luxury of having a warm towel to wrap yourself in after your shower or bath, there are many other benefits to having a towel warmer. Towel warmers can heat the bathroom that needs warming. Why turn the heat on in the whole house to get up, shower and leave for the day? Heat the space with a towel warmer, exit the shower and dry with a warm towel and then dry the towel, leaving it fresh and clean for the next use. This means fewer loads of laundry which is not only hard on the towels, but also uses water, increases detergent in the waste water system and uses electricity for washing and drying. By warming the space and providing a warm towel many find that they do not linger as long in the shower because they know a warm towel awaits them. It is recommended to install a towel warmer with a timer control for convenience and energy savings.
It can be good for your health. Motivation for exercise can be improved when your fitness clothing is warmed on the towel warmer. Imagine how much more pleasant your morning run would be on a cold, rainy day if you started in a warm set of jogging clothes. It is also useful for drying exercise clothing after use. Use it for drying outdoor clothing after skiing or sledding or even just walking in the rain. By drying things quickly mold and mildew bacteria are reduced and air quality is improved. Some towel warmers also have a built-in cup for aroma therapy and essential oils. If that is not enough motivation, think about warming your bathrobe, pajamas, or socks. Consider drying lingerie after laundering and swimwear after use. Additional hooks and/or shelves are available to make the towel warmer practical as well as luxurious.
There is a wide range of prices in towel warmers. The factors that determine price and value are the type, whether hydronic, oil filled, or wire heated, base material, shape, finish and size. Hydronic towel warmers can be controlled with the same system that is used with the heated floor tile systems. This allows thermostatic control, timed start and end times and seasonal adjustments. Electric towel warmers operate by heating the liquid that they are filled with or by a wire that runs through the unit. The wire style units generally cost less, heat more quickly but also cool more quickly and may have hot spots. Liquid filled units are usually more expensive, have more even heat, but also have a slower cool-down and longer life. For more information, visit or call our showrooms.
