Well, the answer is yes but you need to consider a few things. - Will the units be running off the same circuit? - What is the purpose of the trench heater? i.e. will the trench be there to simply ‘top up’ any heating shortfall or take care of any down draught from glazed facades for example? - How will you control the two to stop them “fighting” against one another?

Glass is a fantastic way to utilise natural light which reduces electricity consumption, it harnesses the solar comfort of the sun and insulates interiors from noise pollution. Not to mention the pleasing appearance of clean glass lines. However, glass is notoriously bad at heat retention and buildings that are made up of glazed façades can experience high levels of heat loss – making warming the building a challenge.... Read More
