How Do You Heat A Garden Office?

The idea of working remotely has become increasingly popular over the years, especially since lockdown and COVID-19, and having your own space to work from is ideal. If you don’t have any room inside your home, one great option that a lot of people are moving towards is a garden office, but there is an issue with this – how can you keep it warm? The good news is, that we can offer a few different tips regarding how to heat a garden office during colder months, so keep reading to look at various office heating options to ensure you stay as comfortable as possible all year round.

 Heating Options For Garden Offices

When it comes to answering the question of how you heat a garden office, you can think about a few different options. It will depend on things like the size of the office, your personal preferences, and, as ever, your budget. However, there are some great options that can tick all those boxes, and putting at least one of them into action can work wonders.

  •  Electric Oil-Filled Radiators

Electric oil-filled radiators are a fantastic heating options for garden offices. They’re freestanding or wall-mounted radiators that can give you a good level of warmth and adjust as you need to, ensuring you have a comfortable temperature all the time. They’re also portable, giving you a level of flexibility about where you want to put them and even if they’re in your office.

  •  Underfloor Heating

Underfloor heating is a luxurious idea you would probably only think to have in your home. Still, it can also be a great addition to a home garden office, and it’s the kind of heating solution that can make a difference. What’s great about underfloor heating is that it’s tucked out of the way to give you a lot more space, and the heat is distributed evenly, ensuring the office is as comfortable as possible.

  •  Panel Heaters

Panel heaters are another popular choice for heating small garden rooms or offices – they’re slimline heaters that you can mount directly onto the wall, making them a wonderful space-saving heating solution. Plus, panel heaters heat a garden room up quickly, and you can control the temperature on them precisely, so you can rest assured you are going to be comfortable with one of these in your garden office.


Preventing Heat Loss

As well as finding ways to add heat to your garden office, you’ll need to think about how to prevent heat loss; otherwise, your ideas are going to come to nothing.

  •  Insulation

Proper insulation is crucial for retaining heat in the office, so ensure that the walls, floors, and ceiling are insulated properly. Not only will that make the room more comfortable, but it will also make the heating option you put in place a lot more efficient.

  •  Seal Draughts

Check for any gaps or draughts around windows, doors, and any other openings you might have in the office, and when you find a gap, make sure you seal it with the right materials, such as caulk. Doing that means cold air can’t come in, and warm air can’t get out, so it makes the room much warmer.

  •  Double Glazing

If your garden office has windows, it’s a good idea to install double glazing or energy-efficient windows – it’s another layer of insulation (and it helps to keep the room quieter, ensuring you can be more productive).
