Keeping your loft conversion warm

Here at Pinnacle Loft Conversions, we are Preston’s leading loft conversion experts. So as the weather approaches winter, and those nights start drawing in, you might be wondering how to stay toasty in your new office, bedroom, or snug that you have created in the loft. As a result, we have produced this guide to keeping your loft conversion warm.

The flooring

The first thing to consider when it comes to warming your new loft conversion is the flooring.

While a wooden floor can look exceptional, sometimes it isnt the most practical option for a loft conversion. This is because exposure to the natural light, and the heat of the sun, can cause the wood to expand and contract, leading to tiny gaps. These gaps are too small to cause much of a structural problem, but they will cause a cold draft, and suck the warmth out of your room.

Instead, why not opt for soft carpet to insulate your floor and provide some warmth underfoot?

The Windows

Triple glazed windows are much more thermally effective when compared to single or double glazed. This means that you can save on your energy bill, while keeping your loft toasty warm. If triple glazing isnt an option, why not consider some thermally efficient loft blinds, which can cover the windows and help to prevent warmth from escaping.

The Heating Itself

When planning and designing your new loft conversion, think about the heating itself. Where will you position radiators? Make sure they are strategically positioned around your loft conversion, to provide heat to a range of areas.
