Description

What does radiator foil do?

Your radiator radiates heat both into the room, and into the wall behind it. That heat can simply be lost to the outside, especially if you have thin single skin walls. Reflectors are installed behind the radiator and help prevent that heat from being lost by reflecting the heat back into the room.

 

Should all radiators be fitted with radiator reflective foil?

The best radiators to fit radiator foil behind are ones on external walls.  Internal walls are not heat loss walls, and therefore you won’t save any heat by installing reflectors there. Party walls between properties normally don’t need reflectors either, unless your next door neighbours don’t heat the house, or there is no one living there.
The type of radiator itself is usually unimportant, as reflectors will work with almost any radiator, as long as there is a space to fit the reflector in behind it.

 

How much difference do radiator reflectors make?

On external solid walls that have no insulation, having radiator reflectors can save over £4 per radiator per year. It really does pay to have radiator reflectors!
If you have 5 radiators on exposed walls in your property, you could be looking at savings of about £20 a year. Even in a well insulated property, you would save around £5 a year.

 

How do you fit Radiator Reflective Foil?

1/ cut the foil to the size required to fit behind the radiator.

2/ Cut slits in the foil, in line with the radiator brackets if required.

3/ Position the sticky pads in each corner of the dull side of the foil.

4/ Slide the foil behind the radiator and apply firm pressure to the pads to stick the foil to the wall.

    Easy to cut and fit and I reckon the room is warmer

    The foil is easy to cut and fit. It has a bit of “body” so it holds its shape. It seems to work well, my radiator is on a very cold outside wall, and I am sure the room heats up quicker than before (I hope that’s more than wishful thinking). The sticky pads have really strong glue. I fitted the foil in about ten minutes, and just needed a pair of scissors to cut to size. I put two full-width pieces behind the main part of the radiator and two ~4″ strips behind the outer edges, to avoid the brackets.
    I stuck the pads to the foil and left the protective paper on until I had fed the foil behind the radiator.
    My radiator is really close to the wall and under a windowsill so it was difficult to get the top of the foil far enough below the top of the radiator so that it can’t be seen from across the room. I tried to adjust afterwards, but couldn’t move the sticky pad. I only have a pad at each top corner, so I’ve folded/pushed as much foil down as I could.
    The foil is absolutely great for the job, I just needed to be more patient in working out how to get it far enough down behind the radiator, before I pressed the pads to make them stick. If you are handy or crafty, you will be great at this. If you are slapdash like me, ask your careful family member/friend to do it for you, or like me, just accept a little bit of foil showing, if you don’t have the patience to make it perfect :)
