There are a few different options to choose from when selecting a towel warmer and it might feel overwhelming at first, but with a few easy questions, we will help you find the towel warmer of your dreams!
- Is the towel warmer going to be used as a secondary heat source or only to warm towels?
- There are two different heating varieties of towel warmers, liquid filled and electrical wire.
Liquid filled towel warmers will not only warm your towel but will also act as a secondary heat source in whichever room it is added to.
The electrical wire towel warmers will create enough heat to dry and warm your towel but cannot act as a secondary heat source.
- How much do you want to spend?
- We have 2 brands of towel warmers, Tuzio and Kontour.
Our Kontour line is our economical line and prices range from $300-$700. These towel warmers are a great product at a great price. Keep in mind that Kontour towel warmers are heated by electric wire and cannot act as a secondary heat source.
The Tuzio towel warmers are higher end towel warmers and prices range from $700-$3,000. This brand can also act as a secondary heat source.
- How can I power my towel warmer?
- There are three options to power your towel warmer; plug-in, hardwire and hydronic.
The plug-in option is great if you don’t want to open your wall to access the electrical. The towel warmer is simply plugged in and turned on when you want to use it.
The Hardwire option is great if you are renovating or building and the finishing touches in the home are not yet done. With this option, the towel warmer is wired directly into your homes electrical system. Hardwire allows you to hide the cord with a decorative tube and the towel warmer can be controlled using a programmable digital timer.
Hydronic Heating is the final option. This is possible if you have a boiler in your home and can create a separate line to the towel warmer. Hydronic heating is great as no electrical elements are needed.
Once you have the technical decisions made, it’s time for the fun part… picking the size, style and finish!
