Radiators are REALLY

badly named

Ever wonder why your feet are cold?

Most of the heat leaving your radiator is convected and so gets trapped at the ceiling or is lost through your window leaving you feeling cold.

Radfan's unique design and low power fans increases the warm air flow and get the warmth where you want it most. Making you warmer for less.

Before the radfan is installed the heat is trapped at the ceiling
after radfan is install the room is warmer

It's like we're all still driving around in Model T Fords.

Field Trials And Lab Testing

10 housing associations, 99 homes

Testing devices in real tenants homes is vital and so we teamed up with DECC and 10 housing associations to better understand how tenants repsond to the Radfan. Each tenant lived with the Radfan for 2 months and was asked a set of questions before and after the trial.

Pre Radfan installation

43%
noted that can't afford their energy bill
47%
do not feel warm enough at home
42%
use secondary heating

Post Radfan installation

86%
felt increase in thermal comfort
45%
reduced heating use
53%
reduced use of secondary heating
 

The Radfan works best in homes that are already insulated with 2 or 3 bedrooms. One of the key takeaways from tenants is that they like the effect of feeling warm air coming from the unit.

tenants love the Radfan as they not only feel an increase in their comfort but they also see that their housing association has gone the extra mile in helping them tackle rising fuel bills. tenants can't always get their heads around ground source heat pumps or solar cells but they certainly understand a flow of warm air.

Salford University Energy House

The Energy House at Salford University is a full instrumented house built in an environmental chamber used by the likes of Saint Goban and B&Q to test energy saving product.

Testing

We installed a Radfan in the living room of the Energy House and montitored the home with and with out the Radfan running over two 48 hour periods. The house was heating to run 24 hours a day, with the water set to 82°C, thermostat set to 21°C and the curtains opened at 9 AM and closed at 4 PM.

The result of this testing are summarised below and a full report can be viewed here.
