SpeedComfort Review – Heat Rooms Twice as Fast and Save Money on Bills
It’s March and Spring in my opinion but it’s still cold sometimes and we still have the heating on some days.
One of the rooms in our house is above the garage and it’s much colder than the other rooms even with the heating on and it’s a concern of ours as currently it wouldn’t be suitable to be used as a bedroom. We need that option in the future when all our girls need their own room.
When I heard about the new radiator fan SpeedComfort that is an economical way to heat a room quickly, I was very curious to give it a go. The award-winning radiator fan is designed to fit under any radiator and has just been launched in the UK by Dutch heating specialists SpeedComfort, after selling out across the Netherlands.
It’s a great idea for nurseries to keep your baby warm too, of course, as babies can lose heat almost four times faster than adults. Your baby’s bedroom (or your bedroom if your baby sleeps in the same room) should be between 16°c and 20°c with the ideal being 18°C. Room temperature for sleeping babies can drastically affect how they sleep but also — more importantly — the correct room temperature can keep them safe as they sleep.
Babies cannot regulate their own body temperatures, so are at a much greater risk of getting too cold or too hot. Putting babies to bed in a room set to the recommended temperature of 18°C can help them to get a restful night’s sleep while being safe too. Make sure your baby wears the correct layers for the room temperature too.
The SpeedComfort is basically a fan that attached to the bottom of your radiator, turbocharging it and giving you up to 20% more heating power from the existing central heating system. This new heating gadget can heat up a room in half the time of a conventional radiator and will reduce heating bills by up to 22% and improve radiator output by 20%.
“For families looking for ways to reduce heating bills without impacting on warmth in the home, SpeedComfort will circulate the warm air emitted from the radiator into the room instead of towards the ceiling, so people in the room feel the benefit of heat from the radiator quickly and more efficiently. “
We have the Trio Set – Standard Radiator which includes: 3 x SpeedComfort, 1 x 12V Adapter (UK) – cable length 1.8m (71in), 1 x Thermosensor – cable length 65cm (26in) and 3 x Connector Cable 30cm (12in). We only have one radiator in the room that we are using it in so are currently only using one of the SpeedComforts.
As you can see above, we need to attach the cable neatly to the skirting board or wall, but other than that, the fan is completely invisible from most angles! It was so easy to install in minutes and without any tools. For standard radiators like ours, the SpeedComfort simply attaches with Magnetic sliders to secure it in place. A small note here — one of the small magnets (you can see it near the hand in the photo below) had fallen out and was loose in the box so please make sure it’s in the right place when you install it so that you don’t have any of these tiny magnets left on the floor if you have children. They’re very dangerous to swallow.
There are fitting kits for every type and length of radiator. You can see them all on the SpeedComfort website.
The SpeedComfort has a Thermosensor that turns the SpeedComfort on and off automatically. The smart thermosensor switches your SpeedComfort on when your radiator surface temperature reaches 28°C (82°F) and off again at 25°C (77°F). Once you have installed your SpeedComfort you can forget all about it and enjoy the benefits as it will look after itself.
Very clever! I’m happy to know that I don’t have to remember to switch it on — if the heating is on, our SpeedComfort will be on too, making our house warmer. We’ve installed ours on the back of the radiator so it can’t even be seen.
My husband and I have monitored the room that our SpeedComfort is in over the past few weeks and both feel that it’s making a difference which we are very happy about as it makes the room much more comfortable to be in. The fans are very quite too — I don’t notice them at all.
Hope you’ve found this SpeedComfort review useful, if you are looking for a way to heat your home faster and more economically.
