Radwraps and LJMU to carry out new experiments to identify energy savings
Radwraps and Liverpool John Moores University along with the University of Liverpool will be working together once more in the coming weeks to conduct additional experiments.
The previous experiments carried out by both parties earlier this year found that by replacing a wooden radiator cover with a Radwrap, this would be 118% more efficient, resulting in a major saving on heating bills.
The upcoming experiments, forming a project known as the Low Carbon Eco-Innvatory, will take a more in-depth look into the potential savings that the use of Radwraps radiator covers could provide, and a laboratory will be created at relevant areas of the university with a full scale set-up for radiators which will include the likes of fitted boilers.
The goal is to determine whether, with a more in-depth analysis, Radwraps covers can provide further energy reductions and increased heat savings.
The Low Carbon Eco-Innvatory is an ERDF-funded collaboration between LJMU and the University of Liverpool, and the project will also be supported by a number of interns working at LJMU.
Alex Nurse, University of Liverpool, commented: “This is a great project, which will help us to reduce the city region’s carbon emissions whilst also developing some of the collaborations between the university and industry. This work should allow Radwraps to be able to access a host of new and exciting business opportunities.”
The experiments will last for several weeks, followed by a thorough analysis of the results which will come from the tests, at which point the official results of these experiments will be released to the public.
Radwraps have been operating for almost three years after many years of research and development, and they continue to grow in prominence as more and more people discover the benefits of its radiator covers, both from the savings in energy output (the reduction of heat output) and the opportunity to make the radiators look fantastic and aesthetically pleasing, to the point of perhaps becoming a focal point in a home environment.
James Maddocks, director at Radwraps, added: “We are delighted to once again work with LJMU and their world class facilities and knowledge, testing the efficiency of our products in regards to lowering carbon emissions, providing a saving on energy bills and making for a healthier, greener planet.”
