Trapped heat

A common misconception that is associated with radiator covers is that the heat becomes trapped in the radiator cover, which in turn hinders the heat from being able to circulate around the room and reduces the efficiency of your radiator. There is evidence which supports both for and against this notion. However, using the Uper system, Telfer have made sure that there is no risk of trapped heat and that the heat is more evenly distributed around the room. This is made possible using a reflector, which is a polystyrene sheet faced with a reflective film that ensures that heat is reflected out of the radiator cabinet and not trapped within the radiator cover.

Too expensive

As explained above, the Uper system ensures that you don’t have to worry about extra costs in terms of energy bills. However, another common misconception that people have about radiator covers is that they will be too pricey. Though we cannot speak for all radiator cover prices, at Telfer prices start from just £190, which includes fitting.

That they won’t suit the theme of your home

At Telfer, the customer has a lot of creative control when it comes to choosing your desired radiator cover. Whether you want to choose from one of our existing radiator covers or create your own unique design that will fit in with the theme of your home, we will work with you until you are 100% happy with your design. This is because unlike a lot of other companies, at Telfer we personally create the radiator cover from start to finish, which makes unique radiator covers one of our specialties!

Christmas is less than a month away, which means, it’s perfectly acceptable to start belting Christmas songs whenever you feel like it! It also means that there is less than a month left to buy Christmas presents. Stress! We’ve got your back. Here’s a list of our top 5 Christmas gift ideas which are both unique and affordable.

Book a getaway

Booking a getaway doesn’t necessarily mean a two-week vacation in a five-star Florida resort. Why not treat your loved one to a weekend away in Europe? Or, if travelling far isn’t your thing, then why not book a spa retreat for the both of you.

Christmas hamper box

Filling a box with all of your recipient’s favourite goodies is the perfect way to get some brownie points this Christmas. You could fill it with their favourite sweets, CD’s, perfume, video games or nail varnish. The list is endless! This way you can make the budget as high or low as you want to and you can tailor the Christmas gift specifically to who you want to give it to. You can even decorate the box to add an extra personal touch.

Books

Books are the perfect way to make your gift more exclusive without breaking the bank. If lengthy novels aren’t your thing, then short funny books with mainly pictures are the way forward. You could also purchase a diary, cookbook or even an autobiography of their favourite celebrity.

Handmade gift

You don’t have to be particularly arty to bring your Christmas gift ideas to life. If your loved one is a foodie, then why not make some cookies that you can enjoy with a glass of warm milk after you eat Christmas dinner?

You could also make your own jewellery (with the help of step-by-step guides), or buy a pendant and put a picture of you and your friend/family member inside. Handmade candles are also a fun and easy Christmas gift idea!

Decorate the house

One of our favourite Christmas gift ideas, which can benefit the whole household (including yourself) is to decorate the house. This could mean painting the walls, choosing some paintings, buying some new cushions/carpets or getting some scented candles.

If you are struggling with Christmas gift ideas and looking for a really unique way to change up your house interior, then hand-crafted radiator covers could be just what you’re looking for! Radiator covers can change the whole appearance of your room and are specifically designed to fit the measurements of your radiator. Contrary to what people might think, they don’t stop the heat from entering the room but do the exact opposite. As well as this, they offer a range of different bespoke designs to suit your needs. They are also affordable, with prices start at £190 including fitting. We hope you have enjoyed our top 5 Christmas gift ideas. If radiator covers are something that has caught your attention then feel free to contact us further via the website or our contact number.

Radiators are a key component in the home, to keep your house feeling warm and cosy all year round. Your radiator may have a cover to provide extra storage, shelving or to just keep in tone with the rest of the décor. Either way, radiators are key to the functioning of your home, so it can be disheartening when you encounter problems with them. There are many common radiator problems, and most are very easy to solve on your own, without the need for a professional service.

Telfer have developed a new and unique system called The Uper, which solves the problem of trapped heat. The reflector is a polystyrene sheet faced with a reflective film that will reflect heat back into the room. Ensuring that heat is reflected out of the   radiator cabinet   and not trapped within the radiator cover.

A cowl fitted on the underside of the top of the radiator cabinet will assist this heat convection process. Your home will cost less to heat with these types of radiator covers as they improve the efficiency of your radiators, the heat will be more evenly distributed around the room.

Cut your energy bills this winter and invest in a   radiator cover   that will provide you with many years of service! Please call Telfer today to discuss your requirements for either a standard radiator cover, a bespoke radiator cover or a radiator cover with the Uper system, call 01925450188.

Sadly we have almost seen the end of this years summer which means we can expect a big drop in temperature in the next couple of months. I tend to notice that as soon as September arrives people are already wearing their hats, gloves and scarfs, good old England eh!

As a homeowner I’m sure your preparing yourselves for the winter expense of gas and electricity bills not to mention Christmas presents, it’s a very costly period indeed! However we do have an alternative that could save you money on your energy bills when done properly, what I’m taking about is a   radiator cover.
