Heating a Conservatory with Electric Radiators

Our Conservex conservatory radiator is designed specifically for conservatories. Its low height, sleek design and fully programmable thermostat mean you can warm your room efficiently without having to worry about plumbing or the upheaval of installing underfloor heating.

Why choose electric radiators for your conservatory?

Conservatories are notoriously difficult rooms to heat. However, this doesn’t mean you should have to put up with a cold and uncomfortable conservatory in the winter: an electric radiator could be the perfect solution.

Benefits of choosing an electric radiator to heat your conservatory include:

  • Simple to install
    With electric radiators, there’s no need to add in or extend any existing plumbing or pipework. All you need to do is plug the radiator into the mains through a standard 13 amp socket. It couldn’t be more straightforward.

  • Low height and compact design
    The Conservex radiator is intentionally low in height to compensate for the lack of wall space that is common in most conservatories. It’s also slim and lightweight, making it easy to mount on the wall, while the sleek design makes it much less obtrusive than bulky piped radiators. Optional wheels are also available, offering even more flexibility in placement.

  • Rapid and even heating
    Electric radiators are able to heat up a conservatory generally much quicker than other options, such as underfloor heating. The multiple heating elements and aluminium body of the Conservex radiator will rapidly and evenly heat your conservatory through a combination of both radiated and convected heat.

  • Fully programmable
    Each of our radiators is fitted with a digital control panel. Via this panel, or the optional remote control, you can program your radiator to heat your conservatory exactly how you want, hour-by-hour. If you need a bit of extra warmth at any point, it’s quick and easy to manually adjust the temperature too.

  • Digital thermostat provides accurate temperature control
    Accurate digital thermostats ensure that your conservatory will never be over or under-heated. Thanks to a microchip ‘optimiser’, the Conservex radiator will use the minimum amount of electricity needed to heat the room to your desired temperature.

Using electric radiators to heat your conservatory efficiently

Conservatories are often not as well insulated as other rooms in the house because of the large amount of glass that make up their construction.

As such, you need a radiator that is powerful enough to heat the room, without being too big for the limited wall space. Therefore, the minimum wattage needed to heat a conservatory is larger than that needed in other rooms. This is reflected in the wattage and room size recommendations for our Conservex radiators.

To heat your conservatory in the most efficient way possible, we recommend running a constant, cooler temperature when the room is not in use – and over the summer too. This means that when you do want to heat the room in the winter, the radiator will have less work to do than if it was starting out cold. This in turn means you can enjoy spending time in your conservatory all year round.
