Improve radiator efficiency
This is a quick and easy method to increase the heat output of your old radiators made of cast-iron without paying a cent more on your oil or gas bill: Create a heat reflector on top of the radiators. Attach aluminum foil that is heavy-duty onto cardboard with the shiny side facing the outside. The heat waves that radiate from the foil are reflected off the foil and into the room, instead of being taken up by the wall that surrounds the radiator.
