I have tried this trick to save on heating. It is cheap and you can do it with materials you have at home

A moment ago we saw a method that has gone viral to stop heat loss at home and also cheap, since it uses low-cost materials. We already have the loss controlled but Can home heating be improved?

DIY comes again to help us with our homework and this time with materials that we all have at home. Aluminum foil is the key in a trick that combines it with the radiators at home to help better distribute the heat that comes out of them.

Don’t waste heat on the wall


Because aluminum foil, the one that many of us have been calling Albal paper for years (a brand that manages to associate itself with a product) can be used for more than just storing snacks when we go to the countryside or to keep the flavor of dishes safe and well prepared when we cook them or when we are going to put them in the fridge.

And it is that aluminum foil can be combined with radiators that we have at home in order to improve the performance that these offer and make it unnecessary to have the heating on for so many hours and incidentally we achieve that it is not necessary to raise the temperature of the thermostat.

With this trick, what we achieve is to improve the circulation of heat given off by the radiators at home, managing to increase the temperature by multiplying the heating effect.

This is the solution that you can try and that will also make you spend less, if the heating at home does not work

In order to use this system, we just have to look for some cardboard that we have at home and cover it with aluminum foil. With the cardboard already covered, now all that remains is to place it in the rear area of ​​the radiator and around it. The goal is for it to be between the radiator and the wall.

gain heat

What this system does is redirect heat to another direction in the roomimproving the distribution and increasing the heat sensation of the radiator, since, instead of being lost on the wall, the heat bounces off the Albal paper that covers the cardboard and thus makes it easier for it to spread to other areas of the room.

It’s a kind of mirror effectsimilar to what car headlights can use with lights, only here instead of lighting we are talking about heat.

Thus can improve the feeling of warmth at home and everything, without having to raise the temperature of the heating.
