Radiator covers can help drive down energy costs

Radiators can become more energy efficient when used together with one of the specially designed radiator covers from Radwraps, a news report has found.

The company produces a range of covers which can be printed with designs or pictures of choice and fitted within seconds. Research by Liverpool John Moores University (LJMU) has found that a Southport company’s radiator cover is 118% more energy efficient than conventional wooden covers.

For the test, the university created a domestic central heating system so tests could be conducted in specific and fair conditions. The Radwraps team wanted to get a heat comparison between radiators that were using one of their covers and a wooden alternative.

Trials showed that, when using a Radwrap, the efficiency of the radiator heating system can reach up to 68%, whereas with a wooden cover it could only reach 31% for a certain water flow rate, outweighing predictions.

The Radwraps radiator covers are indeed excellent solutions, and could potentially help users achieve even higher savings in terms of energy and bills by using them together with the HeatSave wireless thermostatic radiator valves.

The wireless thermostatic radiator valves enable users to set specific functioning times for each valve, and, since radiators are individually controlled, home owners are fully capable to maximise the zoning potential and reduce energy consumption in those areas that are not used for longer periods of time (as for example, dining or sitting rooms and kitchens during the night, etc.).

Additionally, the HeatSave wireless thermostatic radiator valves also provide an automatic exercising feature when unused for 7 days, whose purpose is to minimise seizing of radiator valves in warmer months.

All in all, the HeatSave TRVs enable users to achieve impressive energy savings, as they will help reduce your heating bills by up to 30%, especially when coupled with the HeatingSave Building Energy Management System.
