With the cold weather now here there are a number of ways that you can improve heating in your home. If you are considering an extension, then Ash Island can discuss these heating options with you. Part of any kitchen extension build focuses on insulation and good windows and doors.
Recommendations are for at least 200mm of insulation in wall cavities. It is also essential that any windows and doors fitted are air tight. Bi-fold doors should have the best performing glass that you can afford if you want to reduce heat loss.
Another way to keep your new kitchen extension warm this winter is with under floor heating. Under floor heating provides a constant low heat over a large surface area, in comparison to radiators which only heat the surrounding area.
