Benefits of Heated Towel Rails

When thinking of a heated towel rail it may conjure up thoughts of hotel luxuries which are enjoyed during the long winter months – right? Wrong! You may just have to re-think this.

How can the benefits of heated towel rails in winter not outweigh the warmer days of summer? You may well ask.

This is because heated towel rails have year-round benefits and don’t just require a cold day to do their job. Once you experience the benefits of a heated towel rail, you may wonder why you took so long to get it in the first place!

Bathroom Hygiene

While heated towel rails or towel warmers give you deliciously toasty towels, one of their main benefits is keeping your towels dry, making them not only useful in humid climates and cold weather, they also keep your bathroom hygienic as dry towels minimise the chance of a damp breeding ground for germs and mould. Additionally, the towel rails help save water and electricity – since the towels will be dried directly on the rail, they won’t have to be washed as often which means you get to save costs resulting from an energy-guzzling tumble dryer.

Most bathrooms, regardless of size, rarely see the sunshine and so have a natural chill to them. The heat supplied by the heated towel rail will not only warm up your towels, but will also warm the air in the bathroom. Let’s face it, there’s nothing nicer than climbing out of the shower and wrapping yourself in a fluffy warm towel that’s been heated up. There’s also nothing worse than getting out of a nice bubble bath before bed and wrapping a towel around you that hasn’t quite dried properly from earlier that morning.
