Heating Elements

A lot of the time when turning your heating on, you might actually just need one room to be warm rather than your entire home, but you'd prefer to not turn every other room into an oven just to walk around your bathroom, nude, without shivering. The cheap and popular solution is a water heating element.

Also known as summer heating elements, simply slot one inside your radiator, usually a towel rail, in order to turn it into an electric heater, while also keeping it a part of the gas. It's absolutely ideal for towel warmers temperature control over. They're mostly marketed as ideal for summer, so you can dry towels without turning the central heating on, but even in winter they're handy for adding that extra nudge of warmth to bathrooms or larger rooms.

Heating elements come in a variety of choices, mostly differing when it comes to the amount of total wattage output to the radiator, but since they're visible they also tend to be stylised to fit with the design of your radiator in the same way your radiator valves do. It's best to buy more than you think you'll need, rather than less, because it's better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it - especially when it comes to your home's comfort and warmth.
