A couple in Hull have taken the bold decision to rip out all of their conventional radiators and replace their heating system with wallpaper — well, electric infrared wallpaper to be precise.

Home heating costs are fast becoming a vital consideration for every homeowner but 31-year-old Kris Bilski and his wife Olga decided to take a leap of faith and become early adopters of this rather curious emerging technology, and they haven't looked back, saying that it leaves their home warmer than their old gas boiler powered radiators.
