London’s Fire Brigade warns against using candles for heating

Following the online posting of a video featuring a candle-powered convection heater that uses a combination of tea lights, a loaf tin and flower pots, the London Fire Brigade issued a warning against the widespread use of such makeshift solutions.

According to a news report in the local media, Senior Brigade officers are concerned that rising fuel bills and increasingly colder weather will prompt households to use a variety of lower-cost heating solutions and they’re warning that such systems can be unsafe and cause fires which quickly spread out of control – often with fatal consequences.

Controlling every single radiator within one’s home can have a significant contribution to the overall reduction of a household’s energy expenditure, and this is specifically where the HeatSave wireless thermostatic radiator valves could really prove their worth.

The HeatSave wireless programmable thermostatic radiator valves allow users to attain even higher savings in terms of energy and bills, of up to an impressive 30 percent. They are extremely easy to set-up and install, since one will only have to unscrew the existing TRV by hand and replace with the HeatSave wireless radiator valve.
