Challenge of conservatory heating

Having spent the time, effort and money building a conservatory, or bought a house that already has one, it’s only right that you can enjoy it all year round. However in reality, during the winter months and on cooler spring and autumn days many conservatories are too cold to sit in.

Conservatories have unique heating requirements due to their glass structure, large number of exterior walls and high ceilings which exacerbate heat loss. Heat escapes through double glazed conservatory windows eight times faster than it does through a conventional cavity wall which means choosing an energy efficient heating solution for a conservatory is arguably more important than in any other room in the house.

Type of infrared heating required

The type of conservatory heating required depends on how often you intend to use your conservatory during these colder periods. Where conservatory heating is only required for occasional use we recommend our Solamagic dark infrared heaters. These premium quality heaters are characterised by uncompromising technology and exceptional design. The innovative heating element, with minimum light emission, provides a fast warm up time and directly heats people, the floors and furniture in the conservatory itself. This is very cost effective as you will only be heating the conservatory when in use.

If your conservatory is in constant use and has good energy efficient glazing and building specifications, our LAVA Basic DM Infrared Panels along with a programmable thermostat are an ideal solution. They are unobtrusive and will provide a permanent heating solution which will heat the furniture and floor or the conservatory without wasting energy heating the volume of air. By heating the thermal mass of the conservatory this heating has the benefit of drying the walls reducing condensation and the risk of mould.
