Last Updated on January 11, 2022

The conservatory is the perfect room in summer. You soak in some sun, read a book or enjoy a quiet moment, but not so much in winter.

Our Top 3 Conservatory Heater Picks
1. The Best Conservatory Heater By Dimplex
2. The Best Small Conservatory Heater By Pro Breeze
3. The Best Tower Fan Heater By Pro Breeze

Product Testing & Comparison

Our reviewer used a specific set of guidelines to determine the best of the best for our list:

  1. Quality of heating
  2. Ease of use
  3. Special features

Our first focus was how well each device heated a room. We used a small office to start out with, then moved it to the conservatory to see how it handled a larger room. Regardless of how well it performed, we made sure to make a note.

The next most important factor in determining where each device went on the list was how easy and intuitive it was to use. This ties directly into our last determining factor – special features. Things like a remote control, LCD display, or timers were big in helping with ease of use, while safety features like a child lock or anti-tip and overheat protection were also quite good to see. Now let’s see what’s best for you, shall we?

The wall unit is also portable, making it easy to change the heater location to any part of your conservatory. The thermostat also gives you accurate temperature readings and the ability to switch between an ‘instant program’ and a programmable weekly cycle.

Our reviewer really enjoyed the extremely energy-efficient design of this game. It’s waterproof, comes with a child lock, making it safe for homes with kiddos, and is super easy to mount on walls. It also comes with a wonderfully intuitive thermostat – but the programming of weekly cycles will take a bit of a learning curve, just barely keeping it out of the top 3 of our list.

Your Conservatory Heater Buying Guide


If you are looking for a heating solution for your conservatory, there are many options in the market. To ensure that you find the right one for your home, our quick guide offers you all the essential tips to identify the best heater that you’ll love.

The Size

Larger units are more potent than smaller ones and are suited for wider spaces. They also tend to take up more room and are bulkier. Smaller ones, though not as powerful, can be positioned inconspicuously. They’re much easier to move around if you plan on continually changing the position.

The Type

Generally, there are three basic types you can choose from;

  • Radiators– which are powered by electricity. They produce heat by heating an element, either water, oil or some other substance.

  • Convection Heaters– which channel air currents through the heater into the room.

  • Fan Heaters– which blow air across a heating element, directing the heat produced towards the room.

The Output Power

The higher the output power, the warmer the heater. A 0.6KW heater or mini heater is suitable in a small conservatory or one that needs supplementary heating. However, if your space is vast, go for a model at the range of 1.5KW to 2-kilowatts.

The Purpose

Any type of heater would be ideal for your conservatory if you only need periodic heat temperature boosts. However, if you wish to maintain a specific temperature range, get one with a timer.

Models with a frost protection setting make sure your conservatory temperature never falls below 0°C. For long periods of use, you should get a model with an adjustable thermostat as they’re more energy-efficient. These models also offer you more flexibility and control.

The Energy Efficiency Level

Some heaters are more energy-efficient than others. Those with higher effectiveness will help reduce costs on energy bills.

Installation

Save yourself hours of frustration and get a heater that is easy to install. There are many of these available, so don’t settle for something that gives you trouble.


FAQs


Q: Do I need planning permission for a conservatory with the radiator?

A: Not necessarily. Conservatories are usually independently heated and as such are free from building regulations. However, if you’re planning to connect the radiator to the central heating system that supplies the main building, then your plan will be subject to building regulations.

Q: How to heat a conservatory?

A: You can employ electric heaters for quick and easy heat delivery. You can also use trench heating, though those can be expensive. There’s also conservatory underfloor heating, which is usually hard to regulate and even harder to set up on already-laid floors.

Q: What is the best way to heat a conservatory in winter?

A: Programmable units are the best options for the winter. You can set up a constant temperature preference that will be set for some time, usually a day or a week.

Q: Why can I not install a radiator in a conservatory?

A: Radiators are very energy wasteful. They swirl warm air up the roof instead of evenly distributing the heat, leaving you cold at ankle level. They are not ideal for conservatories.
