Dual Fuel Towel Rails
Dual fuel towel rail options are increasingly popular among consumers looking for more efficient ways to benefit from their heating systems. Often installed in designer bathroom radiators in the bathroom, but also useful for kitchens, cloakrooms and utility areas, this type of radiator can run off either your main central heating system or electricity. The addition of a towel rail element and a T-piece converts an existing appliance so that you can use either heat source, depending on your requirements. This gives you the best of both worlds. You can selectively heat the parts of your home at will or heat the whole house when needed. This offers energy efficiency and can cut your utility bills. Read more below...

Why Dual Fuel Designer Radiators Offer Advantages To Consumers
Looking at a specific example of how this works in practice when it’s cold outside, your towel rail can simply operate alongside all the other radiators in the house, through the central heating system. However, if it’s summer and you just want to take the chill off a single room – and dry or warm your towels - the radiator can be plugged in to heat that room alone using electricity. Even though electricity is a little more expensive than gas, you’re only using what you need and when you need it. So this enables you to use energy efficiently, as you are not forced to heat the entire home just to have a comfortable bath or shower. Inevitably, then, if used correctly, dual fuel heated towel rails for bathrooms will enhance your ability to save money overall on your energy bills. But that’s not the only way a dual fuel towel rail can contribute to the efficient operation of your heating system and cutting the costs of your utilities. There are also a host of additional features you can look for when choosing the right dual fuel heated towel rail for your home. For instance, there are programmable models. These allow you to set radiators in individual rooms to operate only at the specific times when you know you need heat in these locations. This saves relying on family members remembering to turn the heating on in advance – and more importantly, turn it off when not in use.
Choosing The Right Dual Fuel Towel Rail Element For Your Household Requirements
What’s more, the typical dual fuel towel rail element also includes a thermostat, which will allow you to set the radiator to maintain a cosy, constant temperature within the room. This will happen regardless of the temperature of the towel rail itself, the outside weather conditions or the temperature in the rest of the house. Investing in a towel rail dual fuel heating element with Bluetooth functionality further benefits the typical householder. As we all move towards smart homes, the ability to remotely control when your heating comes on and goes off via a mobile phone or computer is something that many energy users looking for efficiency will welcome. You can make sure the room is warm when you return from a night out or a holiday, for instance. If economy is your style, you’ll also appreciate a dual fuel towel rail with an element that helps you measure ongoing energy use in real-time. You will know how much you’re spending and can budget for future bills accordingly. And for those who like to prepare to prevent emergencies (and who doesn’t?), look for an anti-freeze function. This will automatically switch your radiator on when the ambient temperature drops below a certain level to stop your pipes from freezing. So now you know a little more about the functionality and versatility that a dual fuel towel radiator and the various types of heating elements can offer your home, you’re ready to start thinking about the model that might best fit your needs.
How Do I Choose The Right Dual Fuel Traditional Towel Rail For My Home?
Whether you are looking for a dual fuel traditional towel rail or want something more modern-looking, there are some fundamentals that remain the same as you browse through your options. Firstly, you need to determine what size dual fuel towel rail you need. This is dependent on a few factors: the size of the room you’re heating; the numbers of towels you’ll want to store on there at a time; and the available wall space to mount the radiator on. Using our BTU Calculator (there’s one here on our website) will give you a good idea of the output you’ll need to keep the room at the optimum temperature. This takes into account the specific needs of a bathroom and the type of insulation already in place that might affect heat loss – whether you have double glazing, what windows there are and which direction they face, and so on. Then, if you’re buying a radiator heating element to add thermostatic and/ or Bluetooth control, for instance, you must ensure that both the radiator and its wattage are compatible with that element. Add in the huge choice in styles, colours, and sizes of towel rail radiators available, and your options could get confusing.
