convert 220v towel rack to 110v

We have a 220v warming towel rack and I'd like to convert it to 110v. Can that be done?

Yes check for any tech info you can find.

And yes you can hook it up to 110 volts but you will get a lot less heat out of it and/or it will take a lot longer to heat up.
Half the volts gets you 1/4 the watts.

Note that running it on 220 will not be cheaper as it is the watts you are charged for not the amps.

You will need to check with the manufacture. It will be cheaper to use at 220.

The circuit can be changed to 110V.
But if the towel rack is convertible to various voltages is unknown. You’d have to post the information for the towel rack.
