Easy fit radiator panels are a simple and innovative product designed to help you conserve energy and save money on your heating bills.
The flexible radiator panels can be cut with kitchen scissors to fit to the back of any steel radiator in minutes. With the shiny side facing the wall, emissivity is low, which practically eliminates radiated heat to the adjoining wall. Conduction heat loss through the wall is thereby reduced by up to 60%.
Independent tests by Sheffield University provides valuable test data that verifies that the product reduces the wall temperature adjacent to the radiator by 20°C.
Energy & carbon savings… Standard heating times (as used in SAP calculations) is 11 hours per day for a 30-week season, amounting to 2,310 hours per year. With an assumed average outside temperature of 5°C, you could save approximately 40W for 2,310 hours, which equates to 92.4kWh per m². Using the comparative domestic heating costs schedule produced by the Office of Fair Trading, that equates to savings of £6.72 (Oil) and £7.09 (Natural Gas) – per m² per year. Carbon savings: 1kWh (Gas) = 0.184kg of CO₂ Therefore annual carbon savings equates to: 92.4kWh x 0.184kg = 17kg of CO₂ per m² per year.
Payback times… Based upon an average house having approximately ten radiators the typical cost to purchase would be around £140. With the estimated energy savings shown above payback periods can range from one to three years.
