The warmth of a heated towel is simply guaranteed with a good towel warmer and there won't be a sauna bath without a towel warmer. So what exactly is the role of a towel warmers in sauna bath?
There are two types of warmers, the electric which run on electric power and Hydraulic models which need hot water supply for them to function. This can be done either by connecting it to a hot water heater or to a hydraulic water heating system.
Towel warmers are the key to a luxurious sauna bath. Taking a sauna bath involves a lot of sweating and the sauna itself is full of moisture therefore drying in the warmth is very important to you. Thus the need of a towel warmer. A towel warmer does exactly what the name implies; warming the towel. All you have to do is place the towel on the warming rack and switch on the warmer then be careful in timing so that the towel is only warmed to the right temperatures making it capable of drying your body comfortably after the sauna bath.
The warm towel will absorb all the moisture on your body including the sweat and ensure that you dry at the comfort of the much needed warmth after having a sauna bath. This is important because your body wouldn't feel comfortable drying in a wet and dry towel following a sauna bath.
This appliance also helps dry the towels after they have been used. The sauna is a moisture rich environment and the water vapour resulting from the steam will stay around and may ultimately end up condensing in the sauna. Such humid conditions wouldn't allow the towel to dry. The warmers are the quickest and surest means to dry your towel just immediately after using it. This is done by placing the towel on the drying rack. Another advantage that comes with the drying capability of the warmer is the ability to control dampness in the sauna room. With the moisture and humid conditions dampness is a sure thing to happen. This lowers the hygiene levels of your sauna facility, cause bad smell in the sauna room and encourage microorganisms and other smelly things to grow in there. To avoid this a towel warmer is essential and would ensure that the sauna baths are done from a facility enjoying high standards of hygiene.
Towel warmers as well keep the sauna room warm. They ensure that the sauna room is not cold and humid. This is because as seen earlier they generate heat capable of drying and even warming the towels. The same heat is capable of being generated with the intention of warming the sauna room to keep it within the correct range of temperatures for maximum enjoyment of the sauna bath. Without this appliance the sauna room would be humid and full of moisture and such a climate is not ideal for a sauna bath. Towel warmers are therefore very important in sauna bath.
