    Evening all. A customer has had a conservatory built about a year ago and with a small electric heater, heating it. He now wants it taken out and a radiator plumbed in. The room measures 2.7 x 2.3 x 2.3H with a slight pitch to the roof. The wall the rad will hang on is brick but the other 3 walls are glass aswell as the roof. I've never had to size up a radiator in a conservatory before and don't want to undersize the rad and he says it's too cold in the winter. I know the room will never heat up and hold the heat like a traditional room with 4 solid walls but would just like your advice. Many thanks in advance.

    1 Full brick wall which is the side of the house. The other 3 are top to bottom upvc. Not sitting on half brick if that makes sense

    Wow. Just looked. Gonna need to be a big rad but not enough wall space for it. Door on the brick wall into the conservatory. Max I can go is 600H x 1000mmL. Back to the drawing board.

    I've had one of these running in the heat without a blip, you can order via amazon (more expensive) or direct to their website. I'm not experienced with air conditioners but it's German and seems well made, delivered in 5 days without fuss and I found comparable in price with similar spec devices from other manufacturers.

    What did you do for the exhaust, a door/window seal or core drill an outlet?
