In today’s blog we’re rounding up our favourite best way to heat extension and you’ll find something to suit any taste or budget on the list. Take a look through the heating options and decide which home heater is best for you.

Underfloor Heating

One of the most modern and best ways to heating your extension is underfloor heating and is fast becoming the most popular solution for loft conversions since it allows home owners to maintain a clean and minimalist look for their new rooms; and also means they don’t suffer cold feet when they climb out of bed in the morning. Thanks to underfloor heating, you can choose any flooring solution from wood to tile or even slate without feeling the chill.


It’s not the most glamorous or aesthetically pleasing option on the list but radiators are a fixture in virtually every home in the country for a reason: they get the job done. They’re efficient and they’re cost effective. They just don’t add a lot to the aesthetic of the home extension. That’s where a more dramatic option works best.

Statement Radiator

Radiators don’t have to be stuffy and conventional. Choose the right one and it can complement the look of your new space. Statement radiators are a popular new heating option because they don’t just heat the room, they turn heads. They’re available in wide variety of styles and finishes. Unfortunately, you’ll pay more for the look than the functionality.

Towel Rail

Adding a downstairs bathroom to your home? Heated towel rails will ensure that your towels stay warm and dry. In the process, they’ll also heat the entirety of the room and make stepping out of the shower a lot more bearable in winter months. Towel rails are often considered an ideal second heating solution, to work in tandem with another, so probably not one for the tightest budgets.

Trench Heating

If your home extension features large windows, or patio doors, which could be responsible for letting heat out of the room, and letting cold air in, trench heating is a fantastic option. The heating system sits within the aforementioned trench and a grille filters the heat while complementing the aesthetic of the room. A variety of grilles are available and the cost of the system will depend upon your choice of materials.
