    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.

    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... ;)
