  • Electric .There are floor and wall units that are located anywhere in the room.Connecting them may open and closed method, when the wire walled up in the wall, or output to a power outlet.There are temperature controllers.
  • combined.Hybrids first two types, but most are aqueous products.This design allows them to work and when heating is switched off, and they cost much more expensive than the previous types.

Install the towel warmer in the bathroom include several types of work.

  • Removing the old unit.

welding pipes.Install the towel warmer continues soldering polypropylene pipes, but you can take and copper (expensive), steel (marker), plastic (unstable).

bathroom towel warmer performed via couplings (measuring 1 "x1 / 2" or 1 "x3 / 4").Gradients are performed during the liner coolant flow, up to 10 mm in length.Liner to 500 ml can be horizontal.

Attention: hot water supply standpipe must be located above the dryer to the water circulation is carried out in all directions, for uniform heating of the entire drying unit.

towel warmer installation height is made at a distance of 120 cm from the floor, and at least 60 cm indentation of all sanitary objects and devices.Positioning the dryer on the washing machine is not prohibited, as long as it does not interfere with the use of the unit.If the product is installed in the form of a ladder, it must be understood that the height will depend on the growth of the residents in this area.Near the drying should not be electrical.

further step of mounting the towel warmer water with your hands means securing the device and the test.It is necessary to check the tightness of all connections, to probe all joints.Leaking and dripping should not be!

Installing electric towel warmer

This essential device for drying towels can be an excellent interior decoration.Advantages are obvious: the product can be installed in any place, to regulate the heating temperature.

How to install the towel rail with an electric drive?First, you must decide on the installation location, to calculate the voltage on the electric power grid to ground unit, annihilate the outlet, which should be protected from ingress of water.

With any method of installation of the dryer, it is necessary to build qualitatively residual current device, tan should be pointing up, and the unit in an upright position.It is also important to adjust the distance between the wall and the equipment.

After the complete installation takes approximately 15 minutes and only then switch on the appliance.

Towel can also be installed in the corridor, in the kitchen, in the room or on the gazebo.This product is multi-functional, and provides removal of humidity that is so necessary, especially in the winter time.
power of this product is much lower conventional heater, and thus consumes less electricity.Here are ways
provided towel warmer setting their own hands.The work is not complicated, but very responsible.Let this piece of furniture for years uninterrupted serves its owners!
