Having just finished my first woodworking project, I’m trying to decide on what to do next. Having looked at our relatively ugly radiators in our wonderful craftsman house, I thought this would be a good next project…except I can’t tell if they’re just for aesthetics, would improve our heating bill or make it worse.
Aggregating the info, it seems that radiator covers block more heat than what it good, but having a reflector on the back would help. So, in other words, they are ineffecient. But is that the right answer?
