Conservatories serve as an excellent extension to your home but many homeowners have problems heating them up in the winter.

This is something you hopefully won’t have to deal with, by taking a look at our tips and advice in this article.

Of course, when it’s the summer you shouldn’t have to worry about a cold conservatory as the sun naturally warms it up.

But in the winter it’s common for homeowners to abandon the room because it gets too chilly.

Fortunately there are a number of things you can do to solve the problem. Let’s take a look at them.

Insulating blinds

You’ll need window furnishings of some sort in your conservatory, so why not choose stylish and insulating window blinds? Blinds do a fantastic job in the conservatory by locking heat inside. In fact, with the right blinds you can reduce heat loss by 46%, whilst providing a sophisticated appeal in your conservatory.


Radiators have always been the traditional way to heat any room in your home and are easy to install. You can have them connected to your central heating or even have electric storage heaters. As you’ll only use them in winter you won’t have to worry about an extortionate energy bill either.

Free standing heater

Free standing heaters are often best for smaller conservatories and are pretty cheap to run. They’re easy enough to use as well and all you need to do is plug them in. then just remember to turn off before going to bed.

Underfloor heating

Underfloor heating is something that’s becoming increasingly popular with homeowners all over the country and acts as the perfect long term solution. Underfloor heating is installed under the conservatory flooring as either wires or panels. As heat naturally rises you end up with an even distribution of heat whenever it’s switched on. You also get a lovely warm floor too.
