Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple to install Bought to replace an old thermostatic element to use with a new heating element control panel. This reduced the cost of the element and gave more flexibility for the level of heating required. Easy to install.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from towel rail heating element Easy to fit and works well. However, electrical cord is quite short. Would be better if it was 1.5 meters long. Cannot comment on reliability as I have only fitted the element two days ago.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from flawed elbow design The elbow replaces a 1/2" BSP stem where the valve has 360deg freedom. The elbow is a O ring design where the final inlet alignment cannot guarantee an O ring seal. No wonder two of the reviews refer to leaks. The instructions say (in red) "Always use PTFE tape ... do not JUST (my emphasis) rely on the O ring seal. That is nonsense, a design should either be PTFE or O ring. I have never had a 1/2" BSP O ring seal blanking plug or bleed valve leak. So I used liquid PTFE in preference to tape. No leaks and a hot towel rail.

Answer: 
Hello Dressy,

The power P in BTUs per hour (BTU/hr) is equal to 3.412141633 times the power P in watts (W):

Therefore the BTUs Per hour for a 400W Element will be approximately 1364 BTUs Per hour.

Thank you for using Q&A.

Answer: 
Hello Divenut,

Not all towel radiators are compatible with a heating element, you will need to check the product specifications and the instruction manual to see if the radiator would be suitable.

Answer: 
Hello Portugese,

This depends on the radiator itself.

If it is suitable for electric installation it should have a max wattage rating that you can use to guide your decision for an element.
