Do I Need Planning Permission for a Conservatory with a Radiator?

Conservatories can get cold in the evening – and during the autumn and winter months. So, do you need planning permission for a conservatory with a Radiator in Reading – or are local authorities relaxed about this? Fortunately, as long as your radiator has temperature controls and an on/off switch, you should be fine.

You may need to explore what sort of radiator is best (for example, wall-mounted) and what else you can do to make your conservatory as thermally efficient as possible. There’s no point in buying a radiator if you’re going to opt for a cheap polycarbonate roof that’ll let most of the hot air escape – and you should investigate buying thermally efficient glass too.

Do you need planning permission for a conservatory with a radiator for properties in Reading? Probably not and for the reasons mentioned above. But you’ll need to consider the radiator as part of a wider design plan that will not only keep you nice an warm all year round – but help you reduce your utility bills at the same time.

Your installer will be able to help you with any radiator installation questions you might have.

Should I Buy a DIY Conservatory?

In some cases, a DIY conservatory can be a sensible purchase. Why only in some cases? Fitted conservatories will be completed by experienced professionals who are insured for their mistakes. You will be doing this on your own and, so, any costs arising due to installation errors will come out of your pocket. Should you buy a DIY conservatory in Reading? Maybe. Read on…

if you are strong and good at manual work, you may find it easy to slot the pre-fabricated sections of the conservatory you designed in to place. But will you know how to build the base (which is the most important and costly part of the project)? Do you know what materials your supplier will be using and how good they’ll look when in place? What training and support will they offer you?

Still pondering if you should buy a DIY conservatory in Reading? Look on some web forums to see what experience other homeowners have had with this method and get some comparative quotes from installation companies too. DIY conservatories might be cheap – but mistakes can be pricey too, so proceed with caution.

What Size Extension is Exempt from Planning?

Although it’s a lot easier to build a conservatory without the need for planning permission, there are limits in place that prevent homeowners from building conservatories that are excessively large. What size extension is exempt from planning in Reading? Keep reading to find out.

Your conservatory cannot be bigger in scale than 50% of the area surrounding your property as of July 1948 or when it was built (if that date is later). If you aren’t the original owners of the property, you should check to see whether any building work was done by the previous owners. Don’t leave it to chance, as you could be forced to reduce the size of your conservatory later if it does not comply with building regulations.

Now that you know what size extension is exempt from planning in Reading, you’re almost ready to proceed. Other exclusions apply, so please make sure that you show your proposed designs to your installer – so that they can check that they’re compliant with current building regulations.

We were struggling to find a solution to a particular problem we had on contacting Abbey Windows (Thames Valley) Limited, we had a visit from their surveyor who suggested they could fit blinds within the glass a perfect answer to the problem Abbey took the job on and owned the job and just kept us informed as to the progression on top of that at a keen price music to a Scotsman's ears. We are very pleased and would have no hesitation recommending them.

Which is better - an orangery or conservatory?

Neither is better than the other. A conservatory is made mostly from glass. An orangery is made mainly from brick and wood and provides more privacy. That said, an orangery can be built in a range of different designs – like Victorian or Edwardian. So you still have a choice.

How much does a conservatory cost?

Prices will vary based on who you use to do the work, the materials used and your location. You could get away with spending £5000 on a conservatory – but the better the quality, the more value is added to your home.

Should I buy a polycarbonate roof?

Lots of conservatories have polycarbonate roofs. That's because they are inexpensive to buy. Homeowners are now replacing these with either thermally efficient glass roofs or tiled ones, as they are more effective at heat retention and sound proofing. This will also help you to keep the cost of your heating bills down and make your home more environmentally friendly.
