For energy-conscious households searching for efficient, cost-effective and environmentally friendly solutions to reduce their domestic energy requirements, SuperFOIL Radpacks or radiator reflector foils are the smart solution.
As the winter months approach, energy demands rise, and the quest to keep homes warm while reducing energy bills and carbon footprints becomes more and more significant. While traditional methods like sealing windows and doors, draft proofing cracks and gaps, and upgrading glazing remain popular, the best energy saving practice is to maximise the energy resource’s efficiency by utilising smart and low carbon solutions.
What are SuperFOIL Radpacks?
SuperFOIL Radpacks or ‘radiator heat reflectors’ are a thin sheet of bubble foil reflective material placed between the back of a radiator and the wall. The highly reflective silver foil surface consists of radiant barrier membrane properties that reflect the heat from the back of the radiator. This way the heat will not escape and is reflected back to the room. As a result, your home will heat up quicker when the heating comes on and feel warmer even if the thermostat is set to a lower temperature.
Can radiator reflectors really make a difference in energy bills ?
Up to 40% of the heat produced by the radiator is often lost to the walls behind the radiators, which essentially means that you consume 40% more energy to keep your room warm.
SuperFOIL Radpacks are a great way to save some money on your energy bills. They reflect 95% of the heat from your radiators back into the room, rather than heating the wall behind it. This eco-friendly product is made from up to 40% recycled materials and a single sheet of SuperFOIL Radpack is 3mm thick and comes with a measurement of 0.6m x 5m, which makes it enough for up to 5 radiators!
How to fit Radpacks behind your radiators?
Our SuperFOIL Radpacks are designed to have a 3 step easy installation. All you have to do is cut the product to size using regular scissors, slide it behind the radiator, and then use the self-adhesive pad on the radpacks to fix it to the wall behind the back of the radiator.
Who can benefit most from Radpacks?
If you do have a radiator on an uninsulated or poorly insulated external wall, a SuperFOIL Radpack is your best choice to reduce heat loss and subsequent energy bills. While it can essentially be used behind the radiators on a well insulated wall to improve the efficiency of the insulation, their effects will be lower in comparison to an uninsulated wall.
Can tin foil achieve the same effect as Radpacks?
Tin foils are effective to some extent, but homemade foil radiator heat reflectors are subject to crinkling and oxidisation, which causes them to lose their reflective properties. Therefore, if you are looking for a healthier, sustainable, economical, and long-lasting solution, the efficiency of tin foils will be very limited.
Radpacks, on the other hand, are made from the most modern technology to integrate a 2 in 1 design, which contributes to high performance thermal insulation and reflective radiant barrier membrane to effectively last longer and prevent 95% of the heat loss.
