#Radiator Booster Turbo-Logic
"Our test lab found that with the Radiator Booster fitted, the room heated up more quickly, the thermostat needed to come on less often and energy consumption dropped." - Which Magazine
- 2.5 times more powerful than older versions
- Larger in sizes meaning it can capture more heat
- Integrated rubber feet to sit on the radiator more securely
- Please note: The Radiator Booster Turbo Logic fan does make some noise
The Radiator Booster Turbo Logic uses a small fan to draw up heat from behind a radiator, It then gently distributes the warm air around the room more efficiently than using convection alone. This leads to the room warming faster, saving lost energy, and reducing heating bills.
We know hot air rises, which means rooms warm up from the ceiling down. A Radiator Booster moves hot air from your radiators into the room quicker than it would do on its own and helps move the warm air down. This in turn means rooms warm up faster, and room thermostats switch off sooner. The Radiator Booster works with a built in thermostat and could save an average household between £70 and £140 per year.
Simply place a Radiator Booster on top of a hot radiator (single or double), the hole facing down, and plug it in. It'll heat a room in up to half the time, allowing the boiler to shut down sooner, saving heating time and cost - for a running cost of about 30p a year!
The new Turbo Logic model is 2.5 times more powerful than before, to gently move the warm air around the room, which mixes the entire air in an average room every 90 minutes.
With intelligent electronics, the Radiator Booster only circulates the air when the radiator exceeds 30 degrees Celsius, so ensuring no energy is ever wasted.
The Radiator Booster sucks up lost heat from behind your radiator, circulating it around the room. The room feels warmer as pools of cold air are eliminated. You should be able to turn down your thermostat by up to 3 degrees Celsius, giving you an average saving of around £140 a year. (Energy Saving Trust, 2009). By saving just one hour a week of your boiler working, you save 15 KW of power.
In an independent test by Which Magazine (April 2011), they found that: "Our test lab found that with the radiator booster fitted, the room heated up more quickly, the thermostat needed to come on less often and energy consumption dropped."
In-built automatic thermostat - the internal fan only comes on when the radiator reaches 30 degrees Celsius, eliminating the need to turn the unit on and off manually, making it very energy efficient.
Fitted with one, powerful, quiet fan (see below).

What's the difference between Radiator Booster Turbo Logic and earlier models?
New Venturi air intake: get 20% more air flow
New design: a rigid, tough casing, with a more contemporary design, less flimsy than earlier models
The Radiator Booster Mk3 does not extend, however it is longer than earlier models when compacted
The LED display tells you when it is switched on, when the radiator is hot enough for the Radiator Booster to work, and when the radiator is cooling down.
Place the Radiator Booster on top of your radiator with the hole facing down and plug in.
Once the radiator has reached 30 degrees Celsius, the booster's fan will kick in to suck warm air up, and push it out through one end.
30 degrees Celsius is the radiator temperature NOT the room temperature. A typical radiator contains water at 60 to 75 degrees Celsius when hot.
With radiators that have not been bled for some time it may take a little longer for the Radiator Booster to kick in. If that is the case, and your radiators need bleeding often, a radiator auto vent might be helpful.
