Will I Get Cold In My Garden Room in The Winter?
15th October 2021
Now that the weather is on the change, you may be wondering if you will still be able to use your garden room throughout the autumn and winter. In short, if your garden room has been built to a high spec, you will not get cold in your garden room in the winter but let’s take a look at what this means…
A Modern Garden Room For Year Round Use
If you choose a modern garden room for your outdoor building you can feel assured that this building will be made to the same standard as your home. We use the best quality materials, take into consideration all of your needs, provide every build with heating, lighting and double glazed windows as well as insulation. In contrast, if you are using a garden shed or summer house as your garden room these will not be geared up for the colder weather so you will either have to stop using it in the winter, wrap up very warm when you do choose to use it or you will need to think about making some adaptations to improve it.
To breakdown what you get with a modern garden room our builds will include:
Fixtures and fittings:
As standard, all rooms come with brushed-aluminium fixtures and fittings. These include a track light with 4 adjustable spotlights, canopy lights, 4 double sockets, 1 light switch, 1.5kw heater and consumer unit. If you would prefer wall lights or need extra sockets, we’ll fit them to meet your requirements.
Using modern and advanced construction technology, the walls are multi-layered:
• 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
With this combination, your garden room will be weatherproof, cold-proof, draft-proof and warm enough even during the coldest of moments.
Of course, if you wanted to take the design to the next level to ensure you are always toasty you could think about including some additional extras to your building such as underfloor heating, triple glazing, a thermostat to control the heating and even a living roof to provide another layer of insulation.
Other Factors to Consider
As your garden room is similar to your home, you can also adapt it to keep the heat in just as you would in your house. Factors to consider include using soft furnishings, draft excluders, thick curtains, a timer for your heating system and having throws and blankets at hand. If you can create a warm and homely garden room the only time you should be cold is when you are walking to it across the garden.
Taking all of this into consideration you shouldn’t ever feel cold in your garden room and you will be able to enjoy working, fitness, carrying out your hobby etc. all year round.
