Keeping Your Detached Home Office Warm in the Winter

A detached home office is the perfect solution for those who want to create a comfortable workspace away from the hustle and bustle of their main residence. But with winter in full swing, you may be wondering how to keep your detached office warm during colder months. At Heritage Building Co., we understand that comfort is key for a productive work environment, which is why we have compiled some useful tips for winterizing your detached home office. Read on to find out how you can keep your business office shed from Heritage Building Co. warm and cozy this winter.


One of the most important tips is to ensure that your building is properly insulated. Insulation will help keep heat in the building and reduce energy costs, while also providing a layer of protection against cold weather. There are many options for insulation including spray foam or roll insulation.  

Heating Systems

Another way to keep your office warm during winter is by investing in a heating system. There are many different types of heating systems available, such as baseboard heaters, space heaters, or even electric fireplaces. Depending on the size of your office, you may opt for a larger, more powerful heating system. However, it is important to note that many sheds cannot be outfitted with a traditional HVAC system, so be sure to explore your options for safe, energy efficient heating. If you have any questions about what type of heating system is right for your building, our team at Heritage Building Co. can help you find the best solution.

Seal Cracks and Gaps

You should check for any cracks or gaps around windows, doors, and other openings. Even small cracks can let cold air in and warm air out, so making sure these areas are well sealed is important. If there are any gaps or cracks present, consider using caulk or weatherstripping to seal them off. This will help keep your office warm and reduce energy costs. Our team at Heritage Building Co. is committed to constructing detached home offices of the highest quality, helping you avoid having to deal with any cracks or gaps.

Window Treatments

Another tip for keeping your home office warm during colder months is to invest in window treatments that are designed to insulate. This includes blackout curtains, thermal blinds, or other insulating window treatments. Not only will these help to keep the cold air out, but they can also add privacy and a decorative touch to your office space. You can choose a color or pattern that matches your personal tastes, or even a hue that coordinates with your company’s logo.

Layer Up

Some people naturally feel the cold more than others. If you’re finding that you’re still chilly, even after ensuring that your office has the proper insulation and a heating system, wearing several layers of clothing may help. It’s best to wear a tighter layer underneath a looser layer, so that your body heat is trapped. This way, you can stay warm and comfortable without having to turn up the thermostat. You can also try wearing cozy slippers or even using a blanket or rug to add an extra layer of insulation.
