The Radfan works on the same concept that Heatkeeper and Radflek do, by directing wasted heat to where you want it, The Radfan sits on top of your radiator and can be plugged into the wall, when the radiator is turned on, the Radfan detects the heat and starts circulating the heat across the room, This prevents heat from rising up past the room as it uses fans to blow it evenly in the centre on the room, You can pick up a Radfan for yourself for only £49.50
