When you think about having the perfect home, the chances are that you will want to make sure that it is as warm and inviting as possible. It doesn’t matter what part of the house you are in. If it is cold and leaves you shivering, you will not want to spend time there. Discover how to heat and keep your loft conversion warm this winter with our best and most efficient ways of heating.
This is even true for the newer parts of your house, namely a loft conversion. Whilst you know that you want your loft conversion to be as warm as possible, there is a good chance that you won’t know exactly how to do this.
To help you work out how to ensure that your loft conversion is as warm as possible, whatever the weather outside. We have put together some of the best ways to heat it.
A simple way to heat a loft conversion is to use underfloor heating. This is particularly true if you have a loft conversion that has become a bedroom or social space in your house. Underfloor heating is not only effective in warming up a space, but it is also affordable compared to others.
There are two reasons for this. Not only is it cheaper than other heating methods to run, but it also is relatively low-cost to have installed into your home too.
Possibly the most common way to heat any space in your home is by installing a radiator. While it might be the easiest and most standard approach to heating, that doesn’t mean that it is the best for the environment.
The good news is that if you want to heat your loft conversion whilst staying as carbon neutral as possible, then there is another option open to you. This is to try out solar panels on your home. They use the power produced by the sun to create energy that can then be used for heating your home.
Make sure you have proper insulation
Aside from the actual heating of your loft conversion, it is also a good idea to understand what you can do to try and keep the space as warm as possible. Some of these things you can do are relatively basic, but that doesn’t mean that they cannot help.
Carpet is a must-have, as this will keep heat in and reduce the noise of people walking around up in the lost. Not only this, but having double or triple glazing installed can also go a long way to creating a warm and inviting space.
You should also never underestimate the power of thick curtains on the windows.
Having your loft converted means that you will need to think about how you can keep the space as warm and cosy as you can. You just need to think about what works best for you (and for the space that you have) and what you can do to ensure that any heat you do pump into the loft conversion stays in the loft conversion.
