Electric radiators offer an ideal heating solution for conservatories – here are the three most significant reasons why:
1. Electric radiators work independently from the rest of your heating system. This is extremely desirable when you’re heating a conservatory because it has very different heating requirements to the rest of your building. You may not want to use the conservatory all year round, and you will not want to waste energy pushing heat into this hard-to-heat area unless you intend to use the room. Central heating systems do not offer the controllability necessary to manage the complex heating needs of a conservatory at the same time as the rest of the house: the conservatory will either be under-heated or the rest of your house will be heated to an unnecessarily high degree.
2. Electric radiators are an excellent retro fitting option that can even be fitted DIY. If you’re adding a conservatory onto an existing house, extending your central heating system can be a messy, expensive and time-consuming process. Installing electric radiators, by comparison, is a quick and easy job that won’t cost you a penny. You will already have had your electrics extended into the conservatory to fit plug sockets for your appliances.
3.Electric radiators are available with a wide range of heating elements, some of which are particularly suitable for heating conservatories because they push out heat at a higher intensity which can help compensate for the faster rate of heat loss through the glass walls. Our Haverland Inerzia Electric Radiators are designed for rooms with high ceilings, but they work equally well in conservatories where their lightweight ceramic stone heating elements provide an energy efficient means of maintaining comfort temperatures.
