A dual fuel valve is a specialized valve that allows you to use a ladder-style towel radiator with both an electric heating element and a piped central heating system. The main advantage of installing a dual fuel valve is that it provides greater flexibility in how you use your heated towel rail.
For example, during warmer months, you may only want to use the electric heating element to warm up your towels and save on energy costs. But during colder months, you may prefer to use the piped central heating system to heat the room while still having the option of using the electric heating element to warm up your towels.
A dual fuel valve also provides a more convenient installation option, especially if you don’t have the space or the budget to install a separate electric and piped central heating system. With a dual fuel valve, you can easily switch between the two heating options with just a flick of a switch, giving you greater control over your heating system.
