My friend moved to a flat in UK a few months ago, and his electricity bill is soaring. There is no gas in the flat, only electric heating.
One curious thing I noticed is that the towel rail (similar to the one in the picture below) cannot be turned off: there is no switch on it, and there is no accessible plug. I did not see a specific switch related only to the towel rail, although I may have missed it.
All towel rails I've seen before had either a button or switch on them, or at least you could easily unplug them from the wall.
Is this the way UK towel rails are supposed to work?
Otherwise, should I try unscrewing the plug cap to see if I can access an actual plug underneath it? Or is there another way to do it (and I simply missed it)?
