Can you leave a heated towel rail on?

Can I leave my towel rail on all the time? Our heated towel rails are designed and safe to remain switched on, day and night. The reality is that turning heated towel rails on and off before and after showering is not an effective solution as towels can take several hours to warm and dry either side of your shower.

Similarly, do heated towel rails use much electricity?

You will find it on the bill or instructions. Towel warmers are usually rather weedy and will not keep a room warm. If yours happens to be 1,000Watts, it will cost 11 pence per hour. Energy from electricity currently costs about four times as much as energy from gas.

Additionally, how do you turn off a heated towel rail? Your first step is to turn off the central heating and allow the water in the system to cool. Next you sort out the valves at either end of the radiator or towel rail: At one end is the manual control valve that turns the heat on and off. Turn this control to the off position by rotating it clockwise.

Also asked, is a heated towel rail enough to heat a bathroom?

Most heated towel rails will provide enough heat to warm the bathroom and also keep your towels fluffy and warm – ready for when you step out of the bath or shower. A larger bathroom, however, may require another source of heating to sufficiently warm the room.

How do you use a heated towel rail?

Much like a kettle or geyser, the element then heats up and in turn, heats up the surrounding fluid. The heated fluid causes convection currents to form, which circulates the fluid around inside the heated towel rail and heats up the rails. However, WET heated towel rails can take up to 90 minutes to warm the rails.
