You’ve probably used aluminum foil to wrap your hot dishes, to preserve the heat of the food. Well, imagine you could apply this principle to your radiators too, allowing them to heat up more without running them full blast. To do this, nothing could be simpler, just staple an aluminum foil to a piece of cardboard and place it a few centimeters behind the radiator.
