Heating your log cabin

How to heat your log cabin:

A standalone electric heater or underfloor heating?

For a comfortable steady heat we recommend underfloor heating. The main advantage is you have a much more controllable heat which provides heat where it is most needed.

Most experienced "shedworkers" will tell you the place they feel the cold is in their feet. The reason being standalone heaters may heat the air in your log cabin but this heat will rise and although your head may feel warm your feet will feel cold.

Supply and Fitting cost of Underfloor heating for use under laminate floors

Underfloor heating installed costs £60 including VAT per square metre. The electronic thermostat costs £100 including VAT.

So for a standard 3m x 4m cabin the supply and fit cost of will be 12 x £60 + £100 for the thermostat making a total of £820

The advantage of underfloor heating

Underfloor heating spreads the heat evenly across the floor and gently warms the room providing the perfect heating method and due to to the efficiency of heating using this system you will find you need to use it less than a standalone heater.

Underfloor heating is controlled by an electronic thermostat which allows you to set both the temperature and the times you would like to heat your log cabin.

Underfloor heating can be added to any of our log cabins. We would recommend combining this with floor insulation to maximise the benefit of this system.

Log Cabin - Underfloor heating

Standalone heaters have the advantage of being cheaper in the first instance and will heat the air in your cabin quite well particularly if you have opted for our insulation package.

However, standalone oil or convector heaters will not direct the heat to where it is most needed and may lead to increased energy bills as you try to warm up your feet!
