Radiator Towel Heaters
Inspiring designs, a source of warmth and comfort, what has become one the fastest growing trends within the bathroom remodeling industry are radiator towel heaters. Radiant bathroom towel heaters provide practical luxury along with the comforting advantages after a bath or shower when you wrap yourself in a balmy towel to ease the burden of winter chills.
Health Benefits of Towel Warmers
When it comes to heating the bathroom, homeowners are drawn to the radiator style towel heaters, compared to forced air systems, they are far more cost efficient and economical. From a health standpoint, electric and hydronic radiator towel heaters prevent the constant flow of dust particles in the atmosphere since they are not forced air units they improve the air quality especially for anyone who suffers from either dust allergies or asthma. The heated towel rails provide ample heat alleviating a breeding ground for germs to multiply not to mention the added benefit of not having change filters or clean heat ducts.
At a recent Interior Design show where a number of traditional and contemporary radiator style towel warmers were showcased, a medical expert was on-hand to explain how heated towel rails can actually improve your health by eliminating dust mites that live in our homes, and since dust mites love a warm moist environment, towel heaters aid in maintaining a consistent room temperature and keep it moisture free. He went on to say, apart from dust allergens, mold and mildew are also caused from excessive moisture especially in bathrooms with insufficient ventilation, by placing a hydronic or electric radiator towel rack in the bathroom can help combat the spread of germs for only pennies a day.
The difference between electric towel rail warmers and hydronic radiator towel heaters are that electric heaters operate independently of the home's heating systems and are simply plugged in to any electrical outlet. Hydronic towels warmers run off the home's main hot water supply with the need for a circulating pump to force the hot water through the towel rails, keeping in mind they will only function when the main home heating system is operating.
