Are Garden Rooms Warm Enough To Use In Winter?

8th April 2019

This is a question we are asked time and time again by our customers. As garden rooms are outdoors it is often a concern that they may be difficult to keep at a sufficient temperature during the freezing Winter months.

How Do Garden Rooms Stay Warm?

As garden rooms are an external form of home improvement that isn’t attached to the rest of your home, we often have clients who are concerned about how they’re going to heat their garden rooms efficiently throughout the harsh Winter months. It is important to take into consideration the size of the garden room you’re installing. You can keep any size garden room fully insulated and at your desired temperature, but it’s likely you will need more heating power for a larger scale garden room.

We would never want any of our customers to be off-put by the worry of keeping your garden room warm. Remember, a garden room has all of the same components as any other room in your home, and during the winter months, these rooms still need a slight heat boost with a helping hand from your central heating system. However, we would like to reiterate that all of our garden buildings include high0quality insulation within the initial pricing, meaning you have no worries of sourcing external sources to fit insulation and that your garden room is suitable for use right away.

If you’re looking for an added boost of warmth and really want to add a touch of luxury to your contemporary garden room, we also provide underfloor heating for added comfort! Please note that this is not included in your initial pricing and dependent on your building size prices will vary. Overall no matter the harsh weather the UK throws at us, our garden rooms are durable and built to last. Meaning they can withstand and stay warm in even the roughest weather conditions. Please note that we also provide all of our customers with a free standing oil filled radiator as standard. If you’re wanting to keep track of your electricity and heating usage in your garden room, we would recommend installing the nest smart metre for regular reporting of your energy usage.
