AS the UK faces an icy blast which saw much of the country blanketed in snow, it’s likely you’ve cranked your heating up to the max.
But if you're still chilly despite your radiators working overtime, a property expert has shared his nifty tip to make your rooms warmer – without spending any more money on heating.
Kyle James, who runs That Property Guy, regularly shares cheap house hacks online, and revealed how foil can boost your radiators.
He advised anyone still feeling the cold to invest in some specialist radiator foil – or if you can't get your hands on any some regular old tin foil will do the trick.
Kyle said: “Give your radiators a boost this winter. Radiator reflector foil is one way to keep your house warm.
“It reflects radiator heat back into the room. It’s really simple to install behind radiators.”
He simply pops some sellotape at each corner, before easily sticking it to the wall.
Kyle advised: “It’s a good idea to do it on radiators on external walls.
“Pick up foil from DIY stores, or kitchen foil is a quick hack.”
B&Q sells the foil for just £11.67, or you can pick up some tin foil from the supermarket for a few pence.
Kyle’s hack has blown people away online, racking up nearly 60,000 likes.
One person raved: “Wow never heard this before.”

And Kyle also revealed how he bought five houses in the UK by age 28.
