Electric towel warmer heating time

The time it takes for a electric towel warmer to heat to the desired temperature depends on the internal heating system.

   Some towel warmers heat by way of a new, patented technology that uses thick wire cables throughout the unit (both vertical and horizontal bars)  and takes only 15 minutes to heat up, regardless of the size of the unit.  Amba ( a leading manufacture of towel warmers) uses this technology in most of their collections.  Other towel warmers are heated with thin wire filaments.
   Another process for heating the units is to use a heating element that heats a glycol-water mixture (similar to antifreeze) the unit is filled with.  This in turn heats up the horizontal and vertical bar, beginning iwth the top bars and working its way down.  Units like this take between 15 minutes to 1 hour to heat up to their top temperature, depending on the size of the unit and other parameters.

 Note:  The temperature of the room, the size of the room, and whether the unit is placed near a vent will all have an effect on the time it takes to heat the towel.

Terrific merchant, great products

My wife and I recently moved into the first house we had ever had designed and built. We sourced all of our bath accessories (towel bars, towel warmers, etc.) from Only Towel Warmers, and we have rarely had such a good experience with a web business. The product quality (Volcano and Artos) is top-notch and beautiful, and the help we got from Michael was fast and complete. We are very hap[py customers!

Beautiful and as expected!

Perfect Tub!

I was so happy to find exactly what I wanted with ONLYTOWELWARMERS! I asked a question and received an answer immediately from the owner. How often does that happen? Love the idea of family owned business. So glad to be part of their customer list!

Reliable service, good product

Bought Amba towel warmer. it can be bought in many places, I chose this one as it had best pricing, selection and is a family business. Was initially worried about small dealer and their ability to accommodate for returns or issues, but went ahead anyway. The product was shipped on time and arrived within 3 days. Unfortunately it was damaged during shipping. Exchange proved to be very easy, the company was very responsive and accommodating. Emails answered within hours and replacement shipped right away. Would highly recommend buying from this shop.

Great Service

Product just as expected. Works great. Our second Kontour, we like it. Big thanks to onlytowelwarmers for getting the delivery address changed at the last minute for us.
