Heatkeeper pack and panels - save energy, reduce heat loss

Despite late September bringing us cooler evenings and chiller mornings, many households faced with ever-rising fuel bills remain resolute that 1st October, or Central Heating Day as it has also been coined, is the earliest their central heating will go back on.

There are, of course, lots of simple ways we can reduce our household energy consumption including lowering our thermostats, switching off radiators in rooms which are not used often and fitting draught excluders and chimney balloons to reduce heating from escaping out of our homes.

We can also invest in heat-saving devices to ensure we get the most from the heat we are paying for. One company who can help us with just this is Lake Renewable Energy and their latest product, Heatkeeper Radiator Reflectors.

To tell us more about their company and latest product, here’s my interview with Lake Renewable Energy’s, Lee Wiper.

Firstly, tell me about your business and it’s background

Lake Renewable Energy is a UK based company established in 2007 specialising in the retail of leisure batteries, energy saving and eco-friendly products designed to save you money and energy. Since June 2014 as Lake Manufacturing Ltd. we are now the proud owners and manufacturers of Heatkeeper Radiator Reflectors Panels.

Can you explain what your product is and how it saves energy?

Heatkeeper Radiator Reflectors are an energy saving reflector panel designed to be placed behind household radiators. HEATKEEPER Radiator Reflector Panels can save as much as 20% on heating costs where the panels are fitted to all radiators throughout the home. The panels work in three ways to save energy, money and improve the comfort and feel of your rooms.

• Insulating the Wall

how a radiator reflector panel worksThe moulded shape of the Heatkeeper Radiator Reflectors creates an air space between the radiator and the wall surface creating a thermal barrier.

• Reflective Surface

The highly reflective surface of the panel acts as a radiant agent and reflects heat back into the radiator, which returns the water to the boiler at a higher temperature, therefore the heating system requires less energy to reheat the water in the boiler.

• Saw Tooth Profile

The saw- tooth profiles of the Heatkeeper panels are designed to stimulate convection currents which improve heat circulation, helping to eliminate cold spots in the room.

What else have you introduced in 2014?

2014 saw the introduction of a new hanging NEW alternative “Easy-Fit” method for HEATKEEPER Panels. Simply hang HEATKEEPER Panels from your radiator brackets ideal for radiators where the traditional fitting method may be difficult.

What has been your biggest success to date?

Heatkeeper Radiator Panels have been independently tested by world-renowned industry experts such as the Building Research & Industry Association, the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority, the Scottish Energy Centre and Queen’s University Belfast and are endorsed by the Energy Saving Trust.

Manufactured in the UK, Heatkeepers are a permanent energy saving solution to improve the heating efficiency of your household radiators. They are easily adhered to the wall behind the radiator and now with the alternative hanging method for those hard to reach areas under sills or behind radiators with small gaps.

Where can people buy/ find out more about your product?

Customers can purchase Heatkeeper Radiator Reflector Panels online at our website www.heatkeeper.co.uk or in our showroom at 27 Phoenix Road, Crowther, Washington, Tyne & Wear, NE38 0AD.

I would like to fix energy saving radiator reflector panels in all my rooms starting with my livingroom

You’ll certainly need radiator reflectors on these walls Kevin. Another easy tip to keep in the heat is to hang heavy draught-excluding curtains at your windows, not forgetting, of course, to close them when it’s dusk.

The bedroom, with a open fire it’s always cold and drafty. I use a electric blanket all year round!!

Radiator reflectors are just what you need, as is a chimney balloon Jennifer – that’ll also help solve your draughty chimney situation. :)

My sons bedroom, 3 of my boys are in a room at the front of the house and for some reason it takes ages to heat up when the radiators come on. I would use them in there.

The sitting room would be my biggest priority. I already use cardboard covered in silver paper to cut heat loss into walls, which is 40% of all heat generated.

Our living room… my family spends a lot of time here and it always seems to be the coldest room of the house. I doesn’t get any direct sunlight and is very cold in the winter

In the living room and in my daughter’s bedroom, for some reason it is always cold

My bedroom has two radiators, both on external solid walls, so they could do with this

My front room – it can get cold quite quickly despite having wall insulation. Probably having a window almost as wide as the room doesn’t help :(

The kitchen – It’s so cold in there it makes cooking and cleaning even more of a chore

One of our bedrooms which is over the garage & although we have loads of insulation in the garage roof, it’s still the coldest room in the house.

The Living room in my 500 year old listed cottage could do with some help to retain heat!!!

These are an incredible invention!! I would use these in our living room as we have old fashioned sash windows and need to make the most of our heat.

I would put them in my wee lounge and snug up with the kiddiewinkles (and husband maybe) :)

In all rooms but would start with my bedroom and my lounge, both rooms have cold air blowing off fields straight onto the walls so are colder than the other rooms in the house.
