PTC Elements use less energy than conventional heating elements!

PTC heating elements are the latest and most energy efficient towel rail heating elements on the market today.  Manufactured by Rica, a leading Italian company in the manufacture of heating elements, you can be assured of maximum quality.

The Dual Fuel conversion kit allows you to convert a standard central heating towel warmer to run on either electricity or central heating – especially useful during the summer months and are available in either chrome or white to match your existing rail.

PTC technology – how does it work?

Unlike traditional heating elements that use a resistance wire, PTC heating elements are made as ceramic stones.  These ceramic stones are manufactured to heat up a defined temperature and then maintain that temperature by reducing the power.

Initially the element will use 500 watts of power until the rail reaches its’ designed operating temperature of 65°C after which it will reduce the electrical current whilst maintaining the rail temperature.

As a result, a separate thermostatic control unit is not required, and the heating element uses significantly less electricity than a conventional heating element.

Benefits of PTC heating elements

  • No thermostat required
  • Maximum temperature cannot be exceeded by PTC elements
  • Any working position: the absence of thermostats permits either horizontal or vertical orientation of the heater during operation.
  • Smaller diameter than in traditional heaters – provides a wider installation capability
  • Very fast warm up phase followed by constant temperature thereafter
  • Lower running costs than conventional resistance wire heaters
