Tips for choosing a towel dryer
Everything flows, everything changes … As they say, you cannot argue with progress. We have already got used to new technologies and unexpected design decisions practically in all branches of our life, beginning from gadgets, finishing with cars, houses and objects of daily use. In addition, as you know, attention to details is very important!
Then why are we selecting exquisite tiles and modern plumbing when making repairs in our beloved, cozy home, as a rule, do not pay enough attention to such an important interior item as a towel warmer? We choose it on a residual principle. Nevertheless, it is the radiator that captures visitors’ eyes, carries a double load – as an element of design and heating system! Undoubtedly, in a modern house, it must be beautiful, refined, stylish, and, of course, carry out its functions qualitatively – to have high heat output and low power consumption. Still, if possible, an acceptable price, but this question each buyer will decide by himself.
So, let us consider the main types of towel warmers, which in the modern market are innumerable. At what should you pay attention firstly? Of course, at the beginning you need to decide which type of heating to choose. Today, there are 3 options:
♦ water, classic, reliable, to which we are all used to, but unfortunately, heats only in the cold season, when the general heating system works. This is its peculiarity. If necessary, a water towel of our production can be additionally equipped with cranes of a square cross-section, with all the proportions of the designed radiator retained (as in the photo). All the nuances need to be specified when ordering.
♦ electric with a tubular electric heating element. As a rule, a non-freezing liquid (antifreeze) is poured inside, which allows to use this towel at any time of the year, even if the room is not constantly heated (cottages, rest houses, boarding houses, bathhouses, etc.). Taking into account the necessary “tuning”, the price of this radiator is approximately $ 50 more than the cost of a water analog. We use electric heaters of European production with a power of 300 W, while the required temperature can be set with the built-in power regulator;
♦ electric model with dry heating flexible element. The main advantage of this type of radiator is the lack of liquid inside and economical consumption of electricity (for example, the maximum power consumption of a design radiator of 500×700 mm is 70 W per hour – as in a conventional incandescent bulb). Such a towel warmer is not much more expensive than a water towel, but it can give heat all the year round. All models are equipped with heat power regulators. It also provides connection directly to the hidden wiring (in this case, the power regulator, also the switch-switch, is located on the heated towel rail). The final stage for such product can be powder painting, then the final price will pleasantly surprise you (pay attention to the White models). You can choose the color – on request.
