Amba Jeeves D Straight Hardwired Towel Warmer - 20.5"w x 53"h
Just installed the Jeeves D and it looks great. I learned the following that might help you with your decision:
1. This towel rack takes about 30 minutes to heat up. (uses hot water to run through tubing)
2. Once the towel rack is warm, it will take a few hours for the towel rack to heat your towel.
3. As explained in the description there is an internal thermostat so this rack is intended to be kept on for long periods of time. (or at least on for several hours before you want a warm towel)
4. the Amba help desk was helpful if you need to contact them.
5. How warm does your towel actually get? I'm not exactly sure yet.
My hope was to turn on the towel warmer, take my shower than have a heated towel. I think my expectation was too high. The towel rack does run at 250W, so at 5 hours, that would be about 10-15 cents in electric bill increase in our area per day. Not too bad. (I'll buy a programable timer when the winter comes to set a 5 hour on schedule)
Also, onlytowelwarmers.com was very helpful and provided great customer service while purchasing this towel rack.
Due to work I moved my family not long ago from Colorado (dry climate) to Seattle (humid climate - very humid) and although we are very happy in this rainy area, I can't stand the smell of a wet towel. That's when this towel warmer came into our home. I do not think that it is a luxury then let's not forget that a wet towel doesn't only smells bad, but it also won't dry you when you need it! The towel warmer hangs on the wall away from the floors which gives you more room.
Easy installation - I am not an electrician, but once I saw the included diagram, I was not afraid to install it myself.
Great Design - love it
Low heat - which gives you not only a low energy bill, but also it won't burn you to touch, which is very important since I have little kids. The towels are dry though
Hardware included in the package - everything you need, but the switch which I bought separately
The included screws for mounting the towel warmer aren't very strong. They broke on me while I was screwing the attachments to the 2x4 on my wall (!?). However nothing that quick hardware Store run wouldn't fix. But it was annoying and time consuming.
I am very happy with my towel warmer. However I do have a small message to the company: Guys, can you please make sure that the included screws are of better quality in the future. I mean, come on guys, I just bought a piece of equipment that cost me over $1000. Can you please make sure the included hardware represents also the quality of your product.
