A warm bathroom year-round is a necessity. Not only is getting out of the shower to a freezing cold room no way to start the morning no matter what the season, a warm bathroom is also one of the best ways to prevent damp and mould.
Heated towel rails that connect to your central heating are the perfect winter option. You can have a perfectly heated bathroom (as well as warm and fluffy towels) without having to faff around with different switches. Your central heating will warm your towel rail, while warming the rest of the rooms in your house. Summer can be a little trickier. While you will still crave a warm and fluffy towel in the morning, you may not want to have to heat your entire home to get them!
Introducing, the dual fuel heated towel radiator. Dual fuel bathroom towel radiators use a combination of heating types - electricity and central heating. They can be connected to your central heating in the winter, warming your towels at the same time as the rest of your home, but in the summer they are powered by electricity - switching on independently so you can have warm, dry towels without making the rest of your home a sauna.

The element will slot into the radiator and heat it using the mains electric, while the T-piece will turn the radiator into a dual input radiator - meaning it can be connected to the central heating and mains electricity at the same time. Shop our T-pieces and elements here, and please don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions.
