This guide explains how to quickly, cheaply and easily install radiator foils behind your radiators. This is simple way to stop the heat escaping outside of the room you want to heat. This will help you to reduce waste, keeping you warm and cutting your fuel bill.

Installing radiator foils is a job almost anyone can do, whether you are a DIY novice or an expert. You can buy specially designed sheets for this job, but if you are on a tight budget, you can even get a benefit by using standard tin foil.
