    Agreed very expensive - perhaps Fischer will price-match

    I never understood radiator cabinets.They were a 90's 'Changing Rooms ' thing as I recall.Surely they prevent heat escaping and rising? And the MDF? - It is what they always used- must absorb some heat?

    You could similarly argue that the metal casing of the radiator absorbs some heat from the water.


    Any restriction near the radiator, be it a cabinet or some furniture, will affect the distribution of the heat, but all heat produced by the radiator will end up warming the room. Heat absorbed by a cabinet, made of any material, will still be released into the room. Similarly if your oven uses 1kWh to cook food, that heat eventually will be released into a room.

    Good News
    My neighbour has been refunded her 6,000 deposit in full

    It hasn't been easy, ringing every day and being fobbed off - 'lady that does the refunds is on holiday for two weeks - is off sick' etc., etc. But she persisted.

    A lesson learned I think. I have always considered my neighbour to be pretty savvy and even she can't come to terms with how she was so gullible.

    So thank you all for your help and advice.
