Hydronic Heated Towel Racks
Though less common than electric models, hydronic heated towel racks can effectively dry your towels with the use of hot water.
How Does A Hydronic Heated Towel Rack Work?
A hydronic heated towel rack is a device that uses hot water to heat its rails and dry the towels hanging on them. They work by circulating hot water through pipes, usually located in your walls or floor, and cycling this hot water throughout the rack. The water is then circulated back to the boiler where it is reheated.
Ordering Hydronic Heated Towel Racks
Because hydronic heated towel racks are less common than electric models, few companies regularly carry hydronic options. However, if you want a hydronic heated towel rack, you can usually request a special order from certain companies.
Installing a Hydronic Heated Towel Rack
For your hydronic heated towel rack to work, you will need to connect it to your closed loop hydronic heating system. This can be a labor-intensive process that often requires the help of a professional plumber to ensure no damage is done to your water system.
If you are thinking about adding a hydronic heated towel rack to your home, be sure to consult with a qualified contractor who can help you choose the best system for your needs.
