How to get your conservatory ready for the winter months

We are fast heading into the winter period and with the holidays fast approaching now is the perfect time get your home up together before your guests descend on you. Depending on the size of your family you will want to have your whole house available for entertaining.

Having a warm and welcoming conservatory is a great way to entertain your guests however if it is cold and dreary you may find yourself running back to the living room. Keep on reading for 4 of the best ways you can keep your conservatory warm during the winter.

Luxurious Under Floor Heating

One of the most luxurious ways that you can upgrade your conservatory is through the adoption of underfloor heating which comes in two varieties; either an electric or water-based system. Water is typically best for thicker stone floors whilst electric is better for thinner flooring in conservatories.  Both options are typically cheaper in the long run than traditional central heating systems.

Whichever heating option you go for having one means that you can enjoy your new room throughout the winter months. Perhaps you could entertain your guests by adapting your conservatory to a dining room over the holidays. There is nothing quite like the feel of bare feet on a heated stone slab floor!

Reduce the Pesky Draft!

This is a great option if you are trying to keep your conservatory snug during the winter months. Conservatories by their very nature lose heat quickly. Including double glazing in your installation will help to keep this part of your house at its warmest possible temperature. Luckily if you go with a reputable installer you will be supplied with CAD design that’s tested against the winter elements like snow and rain.

Using a Heater

Once you’ve got your conservatory in its optimum state finding the right separate heating options will make your life a whole lot easier (not to mention warmer). It would be worth it to consider modern, energy-efficient Heat Pumps which can work efficiently to provide adequate heating. A traditional fireplace can also be something to think about if you want a classic feel and a real fire to warm your bones. It could be worth it in spite of all the mess, however, it can prove to be a slightly costly option. There are many options for you to choose from with respect to heating. Whether you opt for a small electric heater or radiator make sure it’s positioned correctly and only use it when you’re in the room to ensure you are not wasting electricity. A quick look on Amazon will help you find the best heater for you.
