Until recently, heated towel rails were something you would only see in hotel bathrooms. However, today they have taken their rightful place as a tried and trusted place in a household bathroom. There is nothing more relaxing than wrapping yourself in a warm, fluffy towel after a refreshing bath or shower. Comfort apart, heated towel rails can also contribute towards keeping your bathroom dry and free of all unpleasant odour and bacteria.
Across the market, you can get anywhere from 1 to 7 years of guarantee, depending on how confident the manufacturers are about their product.
Designer towel rails come in all shapes and sizes. You can choose between single heated bar rails, which allows you to install the number of rails you require, or a multiple rail system. Other much sought after designs are the G heated towel rail square or the S heated towel rails. As their names suggest, they are shaped after the alphabets and are sleek in form and high on functionality.
Some of these rails have plug-ins while others are hardwired into the exisiting power.
Underfloor heating is becoming increasingly popular as a way to heat the bathrooms and to fight against rising electricity bills. No matter what type of traditional heating system you have, underfloor heating can lower your energy bills by at least 15% in your bathroom. When the cold season sets in, it pays to install an underfloor heating system.
There are different types of heated floors available in the market. If you are re-tiling your bathroom, make sure to choose the right underfloor heating system. The popular option is a single system that offers cables and a thermostat controller/sensor in one kit.
The underfloor heating is flexible and easy to install. It incorporates quick warming surface heating technology, and is energy smart and efficient. The kit includes an installation guide, for do-it-yourself; otherwise, you can have it installed by the electrician.
