Heating rooms with fitted kitchens or furniture can be problematic as there is usually little wall space for radiators, and if the units are already fitted, removing them and ripping the floors up for under floor heating is an expensive nightmare.

Keeping your conservatory cosy

Conservatories are a wonderful and inviting part of any house. Their open atmosphere and naturally illuminated interiors beckon guests in with a warm ambience and relaxing feel.

While some methods can be considered hi-tech and high cost, there are also cheap and easy ways to retain heat in the home that can also be kind to the environment.
