Towel Warmer Controls and Zoning
I have two zones, upstairs and downstairs...each with a bathroom with a towel warmer (sole source of heat in bathrooms). The towel warmers are acting just like radiators though, so sometimes I get lucky and find a warm towel after my shower and sometimes not. I have to make some changes to my system soon so this is one thing I would like to address at the same time. Just looking for some input on how others do it. I was thinking....tie them together (to double the load and lessen short cycling) and have them come on for a few hours constantly in the morning and a few hours before bedtime. Additionally, they could come on during the day or at night as needed to help out with space heating. Or just make them their own zones? From my previous posts...short cycling is already and issue and may become more of an issue if I choose to only run the towel warmers. A buffer tank is likely in my future but that is the subject of another upcoming post. Again, just wondering if I am thinking about this correctly or if someone has other interesting ways to control towel warmers...
