What are the differences between plug-in and hardwired towel dryers?

Understanding the differences between Plug-In and Hardwired Towel Dryers:

  1. Common Heating Element: Both variations share the same heating element. For hardwired models, the plug is cut off on site, and the unit connects directly to the wall's wiring.
  2. Equivalent Heat Output: Regardless of the type, both models deliver the same level of heat output.
  3. Affordability: Plug-In towel dryers are more budget-friendly due to fewer components (excluding hardwire kits and programmable timers).
  4. Hardwired Features: Hardwired units are equipped with a programmable timer for enhanced functionality.
  5. Aesthetics: Hardwired units include a decorative hardwire kit, offering a polished appearance.

Installation Distinction:

During installation, the primary difference becomes evident. Plug-In models require minimal effort—mount and plug in. Hardwired installation demands more electrical knowledge; we recommend enlisting an electrician's expertise. Refer to the model-specific manual on our website for detailed installation instructions.

Both options promise efficient towel drying; your choice depends on convenience, aesthetics, and installation proficiency.
