However one of the main problems is how to heat your new build office that has been built in the garden. There are many different forms of heating that you can use to heat your garden office but one of the cheapest ways is to use an electric fan heater.

These heaters are rated at 3kw and have a rotary thermostat fitted to the side of the heater. With this thermostat you can set the temperature to say 20 °c and the heater will control the room temperature to this setting. These well-built heaters also come with a 2 year guarantee, which most manufacturers do not offer.

For garages up to 100 square metres in size we would recommend a heater like the Broughton FF23 industrial fan heater.

16th November 2015: Many businesses are not always proactive when considering what types of heating to use when their offices become cold. There is a wide variety of heating types available to heat these types of premises, from using air source heat pumps to electric styles of heating. The air heat pump offers one of the most cost effective ways of heating however the capital cost of purchasing this type of equipment is much more expensive, compared to using for instance an electric type fan heater. So as you can see careful consideration will need to be made to judge the benefits of using each type of heater.

27th January 2015: Its that time of year when most business premises have their heating systems on full output, which is fine until you get the heating bill in the spring that costs a fortune. Hence its worth sitting down for 5 minutes and considering what heating options are available to you for your type of premises. You might not have a mains gas supply so some type of electric heating is the only option. If you decide for electric only heating this can become very expensive to operate, so this is where air heat pumps come in as they are considerably cheaper to run compared to electric only heaters. A good example is the range of Mitsubishi heat pumps that are available on the market.


13th September 2013: We always like to give our readers a few tips on how to reduce their energy bills as we approach autumn. Heating costs especially can rise alarmingly as the colder weather sets in. One of the most common mistakes we see in offices is separate air conditioning and heating systems competing against each other, with one system switched on in cooling mode and the other in heating, wasting unnecessary energy. It often pays if you multiple systems in an open plan office to nominate one person to have master control and then pass code the systems so others cannot change the settings. Of course the nominated person needs to be thick skinned as they are going to get competing demands to turn the heating up or down. But be strong and don’t cave into the demands and you will find the aircon and heating bills will come down.


5th July 2013: Advice about wall mounted air conditioning. Hello readers, summertime has arrived (I did start this during a lovely sunny day – honestly I can’t keep up with these British summers!), sorry to ramble on, right where was i?  That’s right I was thinking about installing air conditioning in the new office, we used to have to have it in the old place which was great but did cause a few heated (get it?) discussions between the big cheese and I, cause I am generally warmer than he is and he really feels the cold, so we did have to have time slots so we both enjoyed working there.......  We used to have the Mitsubishi SRK35ZJ-S model and it was great to boost the heat in winter but cool the stuffy office during the brief sunny interludes.  They are great in your homes or workplace as you can stick your clothes over an airer and the heater on a downwards motion and hey presto warmer house but even better dry clothes – got to be better than looking like a Chinese laundry with hangers of wet washing on every available surface hasn’t it.  Well that’s all from me on the joys of wall mounted air conditioning today, happy days


8th January 2013: It may be cold outside and yes you didn't buy your beloved a heat pump for Christmas, which is just as well as we can imagine that would have gone down well.
