Perfect for wrapping the turkey in this crimbo
I heard this was only effective/worthwhile if your radiators are on outside walls - as in to reflect the heat back into the house. However if your radiators are on walls that aren't outside walls then it's a waste of time to use this. Can anyone comment or give advice on if this stuff is worthwhile?
Well the idea is that they reflect heat back into the house, if the radiator is on an inside wall then it is sending heat into the house from both sides already. If its on an outside wall then one side will be heating the room whilst the other is warming an external wall, these panels sit between it and the external wall and reflect that heat back into the room.

You could put them on inside wall radiators but the benefit would be minimal as it would just speed the heating of the room the radiator was in.
anyone have any idea how many meters this is? thanks
This is also good if your boiler is next to a kitchen cupboard. Put the foil on the side of the cupboard which is next to the boiler, and the cupboard will stay cool.

just use ordinary tin foil its just as good and cheaper
Which ever foil you use make sure it's coated.
Ordinary kitchen foil is no good as it oxidize's and turns dull fast. After that it isn't effective anymore.
