Spring weather promises a lot, but it can be changeable. You may be out in the sunshine in shorts and sandals in your conservatory, then the sun hides behind a cloud and it feels like winter again! Whilst conservatories are notorious for being too hot or too cold, there is an ideal time to use them, and that time is early spring if you have a suitable heating option. As conservatories are a recent addition to many homes, they often lack proper plumbed-in central heating (and rarely justify the expense of adding it in).
In our experience, we’ve found portable electric radiators to be the ideal solution to this particular British problem! Below are some key reasons why electric radiators are perfect for conservatories.
Portable if you need it
This feature is a key one if you are looking for a flexible heating solution. A spare heater always comes in handy for colder snaps in winter and spring. Many of our electric radiators can be portable or wall-mounted, so you can always opt to have one wall-mounted in a spare room. You can then re-attach the wheels to have a portable heater for your conservatory in the spring and autumn. This means you can heat two spaces year-round as and when needed.
Slim and elegant design
Design is a big factor when choosing a heating solution. Sadly, many people still think of electric heaters as those ugly, large, gray storage heaters. Electric radiators have come on leaps and bounds and are in fact a beautiful item to have in your home. Our Slimline Digital is one of the best-performing thin radiators on the market. It measures just 75mm from front to back – so will easily heat your conservatory without you even knowing it’s there.
A common problem with other heaters is how the heat discolours the walls. This is down to how the heat is being directed. Heat naturally rises, so it will go against the wall and risk damaging the paint or wallpaper. The Slimline Digital Radiator has features that ensure a perfect distribution of heat into the room. This heater has a directional air vent that ensures the heat moves into the room rather than straight up. This saves your walls from turning a faint colour and stops any PVC from warping. Other heating settings also make sure the room doesn’t go below or above a certain temperature.
Should you wish to fix the electric radiator to your wall, you only need basic DIY skills, a drill, and a screwdriver. The radiator comes with everything you need including brackets to place on the wall. You simply need a domestic power source where you can plug in your radiator to start enjoying heat in your conservatory when you need it. There are also other features such as wifi programming and a remote control, all of which give you more control over your heating.
