It’s a room in the home that doesn’t get much attention but could be used for almost any purpose. If you’re in the middle of decluttering your garage and want to turn it into a workspace or a room anyone at home will be able to use, you’ll need to get a reliable radiator to heat such a tricky space.
At Trade Radiators we have a range of cheap and powerful radiators to help do just that.
Why are Garages Hard to Heat?
Garages are generally thought of as an afterthought in many homes during the construction process. With this status as an accessory room, many don’t have the same fittings and features as other rooms at home.
Usually, the main garage door and door leading into the house will be quite draughty and prone to letting cold air inside. The easiest way to fight against this and get a nice temperature is to install a radiator.
While blow heaters and fans can provide temporary warmth, they are not great at keeping spaces warmer for long periods and aren’t cost effective.
The Right Type of Radiator for Your Garage
When buying a radiator for your garage, there are some key things to look out:
- The insulation around the doors
- The height of the garage
- The condition (if any) of the windows
- The location of sockets for electric radiators
Can I Get an Electric Radiator for my Garage?
If the garage is a room that only needs to be heated when you’re in there, it’s best to go with an electric option.
The majority of houses in the UK won’t commonly have plumbing going through the garage, so it makes sense that some of us need to have an electric radiator installed instead of being able to use central heating.
Your best bet for an effective election option would be one of our traditional rails, usually made for bathrooms, but incredibly adapt when installed in a garage.
Are Electrical Radiators Hard to Install in a Garage?
Electric radiators are quite versatile and only need a socket you can plug into to get getting.
Installing one is just as simple as finding a space on the wall you can screw and hang the radiator, and then plugging it in to get the room warm.
If you have no experience installing a radiator on a wall, we would recommend getting help to make sure it goes smoothly and is level.
