Just getting the bits together for a central heating fed towel rad and (if it's not going to be too much hassle - other thread) I was going to fit an electric element for summer use.
What element do people normally use for this situation? It's a 1400x550 towel radiator. Seems be a toss up between a small element being on ages to heat up and a larger one heating up quicker so maybe it doesnt matter but I'd rather have a lower power one in case it gets left on.
Also how do you control yours? Will be on a switch in the airing cupboard but do you bother with a timer? Was thinking about a basic mechanical one fitted after the spur switch so come summer you just need to turn it on and check the time is set right and leave it to it.
