Some people consider towel warmers to be an unnecessary accessory in spas. It is not surprising to see that not so many spas have yet had them installed because many people have never heard of them, or that they do not know the benefits that come with them. When you step out of a spa or the bathroom, being exposed to the cold space may feel very much uncomfortable.
A towel warmer quickly fixes this as it dries off your wet towels and helps to keep the spa environment mildew-free and clean. With a variety of them now available on the market, it may be challenging for one to decide on which is the best towel warmer. For an informed decision, try these special spa towel heaters. Written below is a guide on how to choose the best towel warmer for a spa.
Connection with the plumbing system
Since spa towel warmers do not stand or support themselves, you should go for one that can easily be attached to your spa’s plumbing system. In this case, go for hydronic towel warmers as opposed to the electric ones. Hydronic towel warmers connect directly and with ease. This way, there is no heat lost as water is routed to the appliance.
Choose the one that is energy saving
Different towel warmers consume a varying amount of energy or power. Energy-saving and energy-economical towel warmers are the best. Although they are difficult to install, they have more long-lasting benefits as they reduce costs which would have otherwise been incurred in paying power bills.
The presence of a thermostat
A towel warmer that lacks a thermostat should not be considered at all. A thermostat helps you to control the temperature of your spa towel warmer. Most thermostats are also manufactured in a way that enables them to operate in an automated mode. This way, even if you forget to turn it off, it will automatically turn itself off when it reaches the set temperature limit.
Consider the available space
Towel warmers come in different sizes. Choose the one that will easily and comfortably fit in the space that you have set aside. If your spa has a floor space that is limited, the best option will be a towel warmer that can be mounted on the wall. On-the-wall towel warmers make the spa look stylish and sleek while at the same time offering the most savings on space.
Consider its versatility
Pick a towel warmer that is multi-purpose and whose use is not limited only on the spa. Portable, electric towel warmers are the best option in this case. They can easily be used in many places such as the laundry, the mudroom or the entryway.
