We’re going through a bit of a cold spell at the moment and with the colder weather comes the need to heat our homes even more. Despite the colder weather people should not be put off from using their conservatories and should be allowed to enjoy them whenever they wish. So, with this in mind we thought we’d take a quick look at some of the ways that you can heat your conservatory. Free Standing Heaters Free standing heaters allow you to add a quick burst of heat to your conservatory whenever you wish and can be stored away to help save space when not required. Despite the ease of use, this doesn’t really translate in to a practical, long term means of effectively heating your conservatory, especially in the winter months. Radiators In most circumstances radiators have to be plumbed into your central heating system which can cause additional costs, especially if your boiler requires an upgrade to cope with the extra demand. Radiators are certainly a more effective means of heating your conservatory when compared to free standing heaters. However, they have one major drawback. Radiators work by creating convection currents which circulate causing warmer air to rise and cooler air to fall which is not a particularly effective method of heating taller rooms such as conservatories. Underfloor heating There are two different types of underfloor heating available; electric and hot water. Hot water underfloor heating is plumbed into your central heating system, is at its most effective if your central heating system can cope with the extra demand and the plumbing can be incorporated into your existing radiator system. Electric is generally the preferred choice due to its cost effective nature and ease of installation. The temperatures can be controlled by an independent digital thermostat allowing you to have complete control over the temperature of your conservatory all year round. One considerable advantage of any type of underfloor heating is that this invisible means of heating affords you more options when it comes to designing the interior of your conservatory as you don’t have to worry about where to position additional heaters. Of the heating methods we’ve looked at, electric underfloor heating provides the biggest benefits.  It is relatively easy to install, so much so that a competent DIY enthusiast could complete the task themselves together with the assistance of a qualified electrician. Once installed, it remains out of site and provides optimum temperatures all year round.
