RadBooster compared to the Radfan
Building Services Research and Information Association (BSRIA) testing
Third-party testing conducted by BSRIA found that RadBooster units are capable of raising the air temperature in a room from 18 degrees Celsius to 21 degrees Celsius in 27 minutes, compared to the 1 hour and 8 minutes required by a standalone radiator, which was used for testing.
The same test found that the time required for a similar radiator booster, the Radfan Classic unit to do so was 42 minutes, meaning the RadBooster is around 55% faster than a Radfan Classic at helping a room reach an ambient temperature.
|Robust unit created almost entirely from high-quality, recyclable steel. Engineered and assembled in the UK.||Build quality||Formed mainly from light plastic.|
|Single low-noise, tangential fan that blows air across the length of the unit. Units feature two fan speeds, normal and boost. Fans tested over 21,000 hours (almost 10 years) of continuous use.||Fan design||Two to six low-power, axial computer-style fans. Radfan units only offer one speed.|
|Adjustable legs allow the RadBooster to fit under most radiators. Unit is placed under radiators, providing a discreet, uncluttered appearance in rooms.||Radiator placement||Must be placed above a radiator, not suitable for radiators installed under window sills, for instance.|
|High-performance units bring rooms to an ambient temperature faster than competing brands. Runs off 18W of power, consuming less energy than a lightbulb.||Power||‘Low power’ product that will gradually warm a room.|
|All RadBooster units feature a summer switch, cooling the air on warm days.||Summer Switch||Units do not feature a summer switch.|
