Electric or water heated towel rail for bathroom?
I want to replace the heated towel rail in the bathroom, please advise which one to replace? I read that there are two main types of heated towel rails – water and electric. But each has its pros and cons, which one is better to choose?
We have an ordinary water heated towel rail, there are no problems with it. And why did you decide to change your heated towel rail?
Because we are doing repairs in the apartment, and the old one is very ugly. I have already found where to buy a good heated towel rail in Kiev, we do not have so many shops where you can buy. But the question remains what kind of heated towel rail to choose for the bathroom. It often happens that there is no hot water in the house, probably in my case it would be better to choose an electric towel dryer. But I read the reviews and many people write that such heated towel rails will not work for a long time, that the life of the electric heated towel rail is from 5 to 10 years (((And the shops give a guarantee for them generally up to 3 years. And the water warranty is given from the manufacturer up to 25 years.
This question is asked by thousands of people around the world, both electric and water heated towel rails have their pros and cons.
Water heated towel rail – has a higher heat transfer, no additional electricity costs are required. But water heated towel rails are very difficult to install; a highly qualified person must be engaged in the installation. Another disadvantage of water heated towel rails is the fact that it is impossible to regulate the temperature, it is not uncommon for them to leak.
The electric heated towel rail has many advantages, it is easy to install, it is possible to regulate the temperature. Its disadvantages are that you have to pay for electricity, many models take a long time to warm up.
We chose an electric heated towel rail, the main reason was the fact that it can be turned off completely when it is not needed, as well as the fact that you can regulate the desired temperature.
f you have no problems with hot water in your home, I recommend choosing water heated towel rails. This type of heated towel rail is more reliable and economical. On water towel warmers in general, shops provide an eternal guarantee.
