    How to heat a conservatory?

    Window Specialists

    What is the best way to heat a conservatory? It’s really cold in there in the winter which means we can’t use it for 6 months of the year. Is installing a radiator the cheapest way to heat a conservatory? I’m worried we will be throwing away money through our heating bill to heat up the space.

    "The easiest way to do this is to use a very low wattage fan heater. It will heat up quickly with the hot air as opposed to having a radiator fitted. By the time you take into account the cost of the plumber and the radiator etc. it will be cost effective to just use a fan heater. There are a lot of good modern heaters that are cheap to run."

    "You can buy a heater called a ceramic heater, they output a lot of heat so it might be worth a try before paying for a radiator to be installed or change the roof type to a more insulated one. Any more questions please look me up.

    "Hi best way nowdays is to get thermally efficient windows and doors in upvc and aluminium . This includes using K glass for inner pane of glass unit using thermal spacer bars and argon gas filled . You can also get only glass units changed. Let me know I can come over and have a look to provide you with best option. Thanks"

    "I suggest you get a warm roof and use insulated plaster board on the walls."

    "Hi Lauren
    heat rises so your losing all your heat through the roof.
    you should consider changing the roof in the long run for the outlay you will recoup your money in heating costs then your conservatory will become the extra room.
    Hope this helps"

    "Radiators can work... depending on access for pipework, if not and if you have electric points,heaters can help. If not, a solid roof seems to be the way a lot of people are trying to combat this nowadays."

    "Hi first thing is to insulate the roof or change the glass spec to a coated version"
