15th November 2021
When you invest in a garden room you’ll be looking for a great build that will be functional all year round. Whether you will be using it for work or play, you’ll want to be warm and cosy during the cooler months so how can this be achieved? Here we take a look at garden room heating options and which may be the most suitable for your needs…
To ensure that your garden room is going to be kept warm, stay warm and retain that heat you will need to opt for the best insulation choices available to you. The majority of garden room companies will offer insulation as standard but do take the time to check if this includes the roof, if it is top-quality insulation, and ask how it could be improved upon to make your garden room fully energy efficient. Here at Modern Garden Rooms, our walls are constructed using modern and advanced technology. They are multi-layered using:
• 18mm timber cladding
• 25mmx35 tanalized timber to create air circulation space
• Waterproof membrane
• 4”x2” c16 structural timber containing acoustic insulation
• Celotex rigid insulation
• Plasterboard and plaster skim coat
The roof is designed and built to create an insulated roof system that meets the modern need to create energy-efficient and aesthetically pleasing buildings.
Insulation like this will make a very comfortable garden room that will feel like an extension of your home.
On top of the above, our garden rooms also come with a 1.5kw heater and consumer unit as part of your standard package. This type of heater is energy efficient, has an adjustable thermostat and is wall mounted. It is ideal for small rooms, offices and of course a garden room. An electric heater is a great choice for several reasons:
- Switching to electric heating, powered by renewable energy sources, helps reduce the stress placed on our environment
- Eliminated risk of carbon-monoxide leaks
- Reduced bill costs with extra flexibility & control
- Superfast installation
- Wireless & app based control
- Faster & safer heating of your home
Infrared heaters produce a deep, radiant heat that warms walls, surfaces and objects directly, rather than the surrounding air. This type of gentle heat is great for garden rooms, largely because warmth is easily absorbed and retained by the surfaces of the room which provides a lasting, effective heat. Infrared is easy to install, requires no plumbing, it is low maintenance and 100% efficient.
If you’re looking for temperature control for every weather, air conditioning is a one of the best garden room heating options. It can easily take care of any winter chill and will also help to keep you cool on those hot summer days. If you choose a remote control system it will be really simple to change the whole feel of the room with one click.
For that extra touch of luxury, it is completely possible to add underfloor heating to your garden building. This will give you a lovely toasty feel underfoot, it doesn’t take up any wall space, it is energy efficient and gives an even warmth across the room as the heat rises.
As you can see, heating your garden room can be simple, effective and efficient it’s now up to you to decide which is best for you. If you’d like to discuss garden rooms further please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us.
