This will do nothing to help heat up your home quicker or more cheaply. If anything it will absorb some of the heat output of the radiator, and reduce heat output. Never mind the electricity it uses. sorry this is cold

It will look great but cost £200

As your radiator heats up, the ‘rear’ surface normally radiates heat onto your wall, heating this up. This heat is in turn lost through the wall structure, due to conduction. The Radiator BOOster™ redirects most of this wasted heat and fires it into your room, significantly reducing the losses and saving you even more energy. It really is as simple as that!

That booster can't keep this thread going cold so how do you expect it to keep my house warm?

It converts the radiator from natural ventilation to forced ventilation. This changes the heat transfer coefficient from the radiator and will increase heat transfer to the room. Only problem is that it will be noisy and look stupid!

I doubt it will increase efficiency much but it will make the radiator more effective.

This sits on top of the radiator, it won't stop heat radiating onto the back wall. That's what a heat reflector is for. This is snake oil, nothing more.

The one review that's positive is were the radiator is not large enough but most mention noise.My partner use to live in a flat that had forced heating,and could heat a 20×12 feet room in minutes a lot quicker than any convection rads.Can't imagine no one hasn't looked in to a good efficient quit way of fan-assisting radiators before and this one seems half baked so may be not reasonably possible?

These are 1st generation devices with a bit more design and quieter fan this would be brilliant. My double rads get very hot so by circulating that warmth to a greater area would be very efficient.

I guess the engineer did the video voice-over too! Rubbish.

Just use a small fan to blow the air from the floor to ceiling. It will de-stratify your room moving the colder air up and the higher warm air down making the room temperature more even, rather than having hot air hanging at the ceiling. Still have the noise of the fan, and the power consumption, but a more comfortable room more quickly. This unit will make your rad more efficient at heating the room more quickly, but not more economically. Its all about comfort.

This uses fans to suck up some of the heat at the back of the radiator and then projects it through the room.

If you buy a heater with no fan it takes ages to warm up the room.
If you buy a similar heater with a built in fan then it warms the room quicker.
Same principal.
Don't you just love the ill informed comments.

P.s. no I don't work for the company ,I have actually tried these ,I have many energy saving devices in my house.
I am getting bills that are less than the bills from ten years ago, If you take into account the rises since then I have nearly halved my energy consumption.
