Has Anyone Used Radiator Reflectors Before and What do They Think?

Postby Raul_breganzo » Wed Oct 21, 2015 9:18 am


Has anyone used reflectors on radiators (NOT foil)?
I would like to conserve some heat and read up on this. My radiators are already on so I'd like a simple DIY job to cut around and put the reflectors behind, sitting on the brackets???

Suggestions/recommendations would be most appreciated please? ... our-rooms/

As you have seen in our blog - we did trial the Radflek radiator reflectors for a while a few years ago in our office as we were interested to see whether they did actually work or whether it was a bit of a gimmick.

In all honesty we did find that they were quite effective and our office was noticeably warmer but in terms of savings, we’re not sure on this.

Unfortunately we have not yet tried any other products of this type other than the foil type so cannot say how good the others are

Hope this helps

Kind Regards
