History of the towel warmer

History of the towel warmer

RSS
  The birth of the towel warmer can be found in the invention of the "radiator".   According to history the radiator was    invented in Saint Petersburg, Russia around 1855.

  The radiator forms part of a central heating system whereby a boiler heats water, which is pumped through a series of      pipes into a home  to heat a room.  A radiator would be placed in a room in order to provide more heat in that room. 

  As bathrooms were heated in this fashion, towels or articles of clothing were placed on the radiator to dry - hence, the arrival of the towel warmer.  The 1920s saw the birth of the cast iron water heated towel warmer, commonly referred to as a "bath radiator."
Towel warmers are also referred to as heated towel rails, heated towel bars, and in Britain, as drying racks. 

 

onlytowelwarmers.com is a family owned business that specializes in selling  electric towel warmers.

The Runtal Radia RTREG-2924 Plug In towel warmer was exactly as advertised, sizes were exact on the mounting holes and it shipped more quickly than advertised. I would recommend onlytowelwarmers.com and plan on shopping here again.

Highly recommended

We bought an AMBA Jeeves Model D towel warmer from onlytowelwarmers. The towel warmer is beautiful and very functional.
When we purchased the item, we were told that the towel warmer was out of stock and would be available in about a month and half.
the towel warmer was delivered as promised, in addition to the best price out of 3-4 providers we contacted.

We recommend both the specific AMBA towel warmer and onlytowelwarmers.com, a good business to deal with!
