Timer required for bathroom ceiling heater?

Is a timer required for a bathroom ceiling heater? I am looking at the bathroom heaters for a motel and I notice that they are directly connected to a switch. I have never seen that before and I just wanted to make sure that doing it in this way was up to code.

There have been many instances of guests leaving the heaters on by accident causing the bathrooms to be extremely hot. This seems like an accident waiting to happen.

The motel is located in Texas and these are very old element heaters.

I suggest that you call in a local electrician. I would think that a timer is a necessity-

On commercial work like this --where a fire could ,at the least bankrupt you and at the worst ,kill someone--You need to cover your butt.

Get a pro to do this one.---Just my two cents.---Mike---
