Fitting a towel rail element allows you to heat up your bathroom radiator using electricity. These elements can be purchased alongside a dual fuel towel radiator. They can also be added later as a ‘retrofit’ option.
A heating element for your towel rail allows you to convert a standard radiator to an electric radiator. The same radiator can still be part of your central heating system during the cooler months. In summer, or when the weather is warm, your system is more flexible. You can enjoy a warm bathroom using the electric element. It’s great for summer use and means you can enjoy warm towels and robes without switching the heating on.
It’s a very energy-efficient option. You’ll need to match your element to the size and design of your radiator. The power an element emits is measured in watts. The bigger the towel rail, the higher wattage the element should be to optimise heat output.
Adding an electric heating element to your towel rail can help you to achieve added fuel economies.
