Got it professionally installed by an electrician. We control it with a timer switch that turns it on and off during the day. LOVE IT! My electrician called back and asked where I got it, because he's installing one at his home.
The towel warmer does not get hot enough to warm towels. there may not be enough bars -don't know but is not satisfactory. i plan to return the towel warmer even though i spent money twice on the installation. the first time the threads on one of the screws was not threaded properly. called jeeves they mailed another screw in an regular envelope which was torn open during the mail processing (received part of the envelope but screw was lost during the process. bought a screw replacement and paid the installation a second time. after all of that process, the warmer does not warm towels.
