The conservatory is the focal destination for winter celebrations like Christmas and New Year in many households, so it needs to provide sufficient warmth even when temperatures plummet outside.
Worried that your conservatory isn’t capable of dealing with wintry weather or already feeling the cold when sat inside your home extension? It would most definitely benefit from the installation of underfloor heating.

Underfloor heating, as the name suggests, sits under your conservatory flooring and is completely out of the way.
It uses an electric matting which is laid into a levelling screed and is fitted before any tiles are laid over it.
For underfloor heating to deliver exceptional thermal efficiency the floor needs to be properly insulated, whilst the glass and roofing system utilised in the design also must offer quality thermal performance.
There are four floor coverings most typically chosen for conservatories:

The other three flooring options can be used with 5 Star electric underfloor heating relatively easily.
We also recommend that you DON’T cover a floor finish and accompanying underfloor heating with rugs as it prevents the warm air from travelling.
