I might have gone mad (not my problem) but at about 6.35pm I am sure I heard
a phone caller on the Chris Evans show say that you can save 30% on heating
bills by removing the air from a CH system. The caller then advertised his
co and gave a web site for his special equipment.
My girlfriends 4 year old son was shouting as I unloaded the shopping so I
did not catch the web site.
Did anyone else hear this?
The instructions say to fit the device, then leave the filing
loop connected, to make up for air removed. Reads like they
intend you to leave the tap open, which could seriously over
pressurise, don't you think?

Presumably his oil bill went up as a result of the whole house becoming
a lot warmer.
Did you also note that one of the case studies was about a 'heating
engineeer' who had no idea on how to fix his own heating system.
The clue to these miraculous improvements are contained in the fitting
Re-commission as per the boiler manufactures instructions.
Any competent plumber will bleed the radiators during the re-commission.
They're having a laugh.
The thing costs £195 and is just an air separator.
Clearly the manufacturer, Stan Whetstone, (what an apt name) thinks
that people are more gullible in the north, since he has only one
dealer south of Derby.
I'm also a bit worried about Mr Tony Goodyear,a Heating Engineer (no
less) from Nottingham who thought that fitting a new condensing boiler
would cure problems with a pump.
Then we have Mr Chris Horton, another heating engineer (from Hartlepool
this time - not sure where that is, but I don't think I've ever been
there) who fitted one to a system that needed to be bled every 3 - 4
days. Well now. I wonder why that was. Could it be that there was
substantial catalytic action or just plain and simple sucking down?
Fitting an air separator would do wonders for both and make sure that
there is a plentiful supply of fresh air going through the system to
eat away at the steel of those radiators.
The scary thing is that these are probably real people with customers.
It probably does work in the sense of being an air extractor.
However Myson have been making these for years for about £15.
It's the other claims such as saving the best part of a tonne of CO2
emissions that seems to be a bit of a stretch.
Perhaps I should come up with a similar idea. If I can persuade
people to give me their money rather to the outlets you mention as well
as the Lottery, which you didn't, then they would be better off anyway.

It must be a brilliant thing, acording to the testimonials J.P Westall
of Hexham fitted it to his OIL FIRED system and his GAS bills went
