Did you know that up to 70% of the heat from the back of a radiator is used to heat the wall behind it. Only about 30% is used to heat the room itself. As the radiator warms up, it warms the wall behind it. The heat is then transferred to the outside of the wall where it is lost. Energy is saved and the fuel bills are substantially reduced giving very early payback periods (6 months to 24 months).
These panels have Ofgem accreditation for EEC schemes and after fitting your radiator panels they will reduce your heating bills by up to 20%. That's £60 a year for the average 3 bedroom semi-detached house, which means they will pay for themselves in as little as one season.The Heatsaver Panel is a unique profiled thermal insulator, the result of years of intensive research. Without Heatsaver the radiator must first heat up the wall behind - this heat seeps through the wall and out of the building.
There is no need to remove the radiators to fit the panels and they come complete with comprehensive fitting instructions and a roll of double-sided tape. Each panel is 600mm high x 530mm wide. Generally each standard sized radiator will need two panels. With Heatsaver the hot air naturally rising behind a radiator is caused to spin by the profile of the panel creating a series of vortices, rising at higher speed, and continuing to spin out into the room. The wall behind the panel stays cool.
HOW IT WORKS
The rising air curtain extending 2-3 meters above the radiator prevents heat dissipation through the wall and any window above. The comfort level in the room is significantly improved. Deterioration behind the radiators and discolouration above is reduced. The enhanced convective flow pattern improves heat distribution, reduces heat up time and virtually eliminates cold spots. The Heatsaver panel fits behind the radiator and reduces the wasted heat by insulating the wall keeping it virtually cold. The heat that is saved either heats the air in the room, warming it faster, or is retained in the system so the boiler fires less and uses less fuel.
Helps to reduce carbon dioxide emissions Reduces heating costs by at least 15% Increases return water temperature allowing the boiler to fire less often and for shorter periods Increases and improves convection behind the radiator eliminating cold spots and improving heat distribution Prevents primary heat loss through the wall Simple to install without the need to remove the radiator and are not visible.
Key:A Wall with radiator B Full length window C Wall without radiator D Wall with radiator insulation panel Comparison of A and D shows extremely efficient performance of panel, reducing heat loss through the wall. After panel fitment the increased air acceleration and redirection of the airflow pattern, achieves a more even distribution of heat, which raises comfort levels for all the occupants: this benefit is felt immediately. Saw Tooth Radiator Panels particularly effective when used with LST radiators.
- It is unaffected by moisture or water ingress
- It can be removed and re-laid without reducing efficiency
