Q. What is a straight towel radiator?
A. A straight towel radiator is a radiator that is designed to heat both your bathroom and your towels, and is a straight design. These are probably the design you will have most often seen, with the straight down sides and little round bars between.
Q. Why should I choose a straight towel radiator?
A. Straight towel radiators are a great idea, particularly for bathrooms, as they tend to be smaller than your average radiator, and also serve a dual purpose as you can use these to dry your towels, or make sure they are nice and toasty before you get out of the shower or bath. There are lots of different styles, brands, sizes and price points to choose room, there's bound to be one for every bathroom.
Q. What things should I consider before purchasing a straight towel radiator?
A. The things that you will need to consider are the size of the towel radiator, budget and style. You will also need to consider how you want to use your straight towel radiator, for example if you want an electric radiator, dual fuel or run from your central heating system. With electric you will have an electric element that controls the heating of your radiator, when it is being run from the central heating then this will be what controls the temperature, and if you want to use it as a dual fuel radiator, you can switch the central heating off in the summer, but still use the electric element to heat the radiator for drying your towels.
Q. Will I need to purchase anything else in order to us my straight towel radiator?
A. You will need radiator valves as these will not be included, it is always best to ask your installer for advice on which valves to use. You may also need to purchase an electric element if you are using the radiator as dual fuel, or if it is electric.
Q. What style of straight towel radiator should I choose?
A. This will be down to your own personal preference, and will also depend on the style of other items in your bathroom. If you are trying to create an ultra modern feel, then a traditional style straight towel radiator is not going to suit the overall look of the bathroom. There is no right or wrong, but you will need to ensure that you have enough space to fit the towel radiator that you have chosen.
