Install a simple electric towel warmer

Installing a simple towel warmer like this is a breeze, especially when you have a recessed box power supply. It is then limited to the attachment of the device and the connection of two son, via a domino. It can be installed in Volume 2 of the bathroom if it is class II, so double insulated. The connection of models with pilot wire control or even powerline (PLC) is more complex.
