All of us want to save money on our heating bills and there are a myriad of
ways to do this:
- Install Double Glazing
- Updating our boiler and radiators
- Improve our insulation
- Insulate walls
However, many of these methods of fairly expensive. And
while you will eventually get a return on your investment it could take several
years for the fuel bill savings to out weigh the costs of installing double
glazing, insulation or a new boiler – and that is if we have the funds in the
But there are more cost-effective methods of reducing bills
and getting more heat for our money from out existing heating system.
Radiator Panels and Foil
Radiator panels and foil are an ingenious solution to
perhaps the biggest drawback in using radiators to provide our heat.
Radiators, to save space, are usually installed lying flat
against a wall, maybe two to three inches away. However, what this means is
that all the heat radiating from the back of the radiator is lost – soaked up
by the wall behind.
By reflecting this heat back towards the room, you can effectively
boost the power output of your radiators, allowing you to turn the thermostat
down, and remain just as warm.
And this is what radiator foil and panels do. These clever
devices are easily stuck to wall behind the radiators, usually attached with
double sided tape. These reflective panels and foil then reflect the infra-red
energy (heat) that is radiated out from the radiator.
Because they are made from a highly reflective material,
this heat bounces back into the room, adding to the heat that is already
radiating from the front of the radiator facing into the room.
Radiator panels are simple, cheap and effective. By using
them this winter you could … Read more
