    Default Hydronic Towel Warmer

    Hello,

    Can anyone recommend a brand for hydronic towel warmers? I can not find a show room in the area with a decent display.

    Thanks,
    Steve

    I chose an electric one because I like a warm towel in the summer as well. I put it on a timer, so it doesn't run all of the time. If you are looking or room heating as well, then the hydronic is the way to go, the electric one is only 165W, and wouldn't do much to room heating, although it doesn't hurt.

    A quick Google search for Runtal Hydronics and I was able to find this:

    They make some very nice radiators.

    You should be able to look at some in the Chicago burbs.

    Send us a pic when you get it installed!

    If you want a really nice hydronic towel warmer look at the Wesaunard brand at http://www.towelwarmersonline.com. They can even make custom for you if you need.

    In most installations a hydronic "towel warmer" is just another name for "heating system radiator", with a more practical/useful shape compared to the radiators peops USED to drape their towels on. Unless the bathroom at your house is an unheated latrine, it's not such a huge extravagance.

    At the barracks latrine I think I'd opt for the heated toilet seat over the towel warmer...
