Underfloor heating, an asset in winter.

When we decided to open up the kitchen into the small conservatory on the back of the house we worried about heating and keeping it warm in winter. Although we have a south facing garden the winter evenings are chilly so we did some research.

We decided on underfloor heating. The conservatory was already built so we choose low level heating that wouldn’t affect the floor height and was compatible with laminate flooring. We felt laminate was more suitable for boys playing in the kitchen using the floor for indoor football, car games and lego building.

My husband planned the layout covering the whole space. We have a timer for winter and a quick on/off switch for immediate use, you can see it neatly on the wall above. The flooring doesn’t take long to heat at all as the concrete floor below had been fully insulated before the system was laid.

We know underfloor heating has added value to our home, is this something you have considered?

    We have it in our conservatory and it’s so good. It was already there when we bought it and it definitely caught our eye when we heard that the house had it!

      It makes the room more useable, what a great find when buying a house.
