Choosing between electric or hydronic towel warmers

When you are trying to pick the perfect towel warmer for your bathroom, you will see there are two different types: hydronic and electric. Both are designed for home use, and both have advantages and disadvantages. The following paragraphs will provide some useful information on each of the two types of towel warmers to help make the decision process easier.

Electric towel warmers are extremely popular, and are filled with mineral oil, which is then heated by electricity. Electric towel warmers run independently off your central heating system in your home. This type of towel warmer usually has different heat settings, to help control the heat in your bathroom. Most people who already have a forced-air system in their home chose an electric towel warmer over the hydronic type.

Hydronic towel warmers are not heated by electricity or oil. Instead, hydronic towel warmers are connected to your home’s hot water supply. With this type of towel warmer, hot water is re-circulated through the towel warmer by a pump, and usually runs constantly. People who want a towel warmer to help heat their bathrooms most commonly chose a hydronic towel warmer. They have been proven most effective, and most cost efficient, when working as an additional heat source for your bathroom.

Whether you are chose a hydronic towel warmer, or an electric towel warmer, you will be able to find a style perfect for your needs. Towel warmers come in all shapes and sizes, as well as a wide variety of colors. Some models can be mounted to your wall, while other models come with a stand, and do not require mounting. So, no matter which type of towel warmer you chose, finding a model to perfectly suit your needs should be a breeze!
