Do heated towel rails heat towels?

Yes of course! A heated towel rail is designed to dry and warm your towels to provide the luxury experience of stepping out of your shower to a deliciously warm towel close at hand. If  you are operating your towel rail on a timer you will need to ensure your towel rail is running for a sufficient amount of time before you want to use it to both dry and warm you towels. The length of time needed to sufficiently dry and warm your towels will depend of the number of towels, the size of the towel rail and if there is any other heating in the bathroom. The heat generated by the towel rail is a gentle heat so your towel will be warm but not overly hot like as if it has just been removed from the tumble dryer.
