Underfloor Heating Solutions for the British Conservatory
Conservatories can be very troublesome to heat efficiently or cheaply, given the glass walls and high ceilings associated with such buildings.
However, they are also a delight to sit in and while away a summer’s afternoon, and a truly cosy conservatory can be a real asset to a home. Fortunately, more people are waking up to the great potential that underfloor heating has for keeping a conservatory warm throughout the year in the UK.
Both electric, or dry, underfloor heating and its central heating counterpart are suitable for conservatories, although the householder will need to check which is the most appropriate for their particular property piped underfloor heatings can often only be installed at the initial design stage of a house, as to do so afterwards is economically unviable.
In general, however, underfloor heating is great for a conservatory as it keeps the floor warm first and foremost while also allowing heat to radiate upwards and warm the rest of the room. It also keeps space clear and uncluttered, unlike other heating sources such as radiators.
