Hydronic towel warmers are connected to either the home's heating system or to a loop of hot water that circulates from the home's hot water tank. If they are connected to the heating system, the heat must be turned on for the towel warmer to operate.

Multirail towel warmers have several cross rails, allowing the towel warmer to be sized to heat the bathroom.
