Despite the several benefits provided by a hydronic heated towel rack, they can still prove cheaper than other heating solutions such as designer radiators. And the type of towel rack you choose will determine how much of a dent it will make in your budget.
Firstly, at the lower end of the price spectrum sit standard hydronic heated towel racks, which require connection to a central heating system to work correctly. The biggest downside to this is that you’ll have to have your entire home heating switched on, even if you’re only intending to warm up your bathroom, or wherever your towel warmer is located.
At a more expensive price, electric towel racks instead utilize energy from a home electrical system, which allows you to heat a targeted area rather than an entire property. That said, although they may cost more initially, this type of towel rack can actually prove cheaper in the long run. Dual fuel heated towel racks operate in a similar manner to their electric counterparts meanwhile, and, offering similar benefits, are another type towards the higher end of the pricing scale.
As hydronic heated towel racks continue to ascend in terms of overall popularity though, a far more expansive range of designs has become available to meet demand, and the components on the whole have become much more affordable. Of course, you might want to save up a bit to secure your dream design, but whether you’re opting for a freestanding or wall mounted type in a vintage or contemporary style, you should be able to find a value heated towel rack that won’t break the bank.
