I would like to have my electric towel rail turn on and off at specified times so I plan to fit a timer to it. It's rated 400 watts and is on its own circuit from the consumer unit with a switched fused outlet in a surface mounted box outside of the bathroom.
I plan to do the work myself so need some advice!
Is there anything that I can simply replace the fused / switched outlet with? i.e. a box mounted timer which also provides fuse protection? If I have a separate timer should it go between the fused outlet and the towel rail or between the consumer unit and the fused outlet?
Are there any other issues I should consider?
