Even the best towel warmers on the market can malfunction and need repair. This is why most models of towel warmers come with a warranty to cover the cost of any repairs necessary during an agreed upon time period. Sometimes even extended warranties are available for an additional cost. The following paragraphs will discuss how warranties on towel warmers generally work, and what to do if your towel warmer needs repairs that are not covered under warranty.
When you purchase a quality towel warmer, it will most likely come with a warranty for a set amount of time. This insures your towel warmer will run effectively for this time, and not require repair. If during this time, your towel warmer does malfunction, the repair cost, or replacement cost if the towel warmer cannot be repaired, will be covered by the warranty, and will not cost you any out of pocket expenses.
It is very important, when purchasing a towel warmer, to understand what repairs your warranty will and will not cover. Most warranties do not cover any damage caused by user negligence. And most warranties will not cover any damage caused by freezing conditions in your house. A towel warmer should never be used as a primary source of heat in your house.
If your towel warmer needs repaired, and it is not covered under a warranty, it is likely you will need to seek professional assistance. Depending on what type of towel warmer you have, and depending on the type of repair needed, who you would need to call can vary. If you are having problems with your hydronic towel warmer, you may need to call a plumber. If you have an electric towel warmer, it is possible you will need an electrician. With either type, sometimes an appliance repairman can do the fixing, and usually cheaper than a plumber or electrician. It all depends on the type of towel warmer you have, and the specific problem you are having with it.
