Read our blog to find out how to make the most of your conservatory all year round.
Technology is advancing at an incredible rate and although historically, conservatories have only been used in the summer, new technology means we can enjoy them all year round. Even when it’s not warm outside, the conservatory can still be a comfortable temperature.
Glass and glazing has improved vastly over the last several years, making the early double glazed windows of the 80s and 90s seem like ancient artefacts in terms of draught-proofing, noise reduction, energy efficiency and thermal performance. Modern double glazing (and triple glazing) can actually help heat a room by allowing more warmth in from outside and then retaining it inside the room brilliantly. Applying this technology to your conservatory gives you a room that traps the Sun’s heat, even through the Winter, creating you a room that is usable all year round.
Perfect for a sunny day.
Having a radiator on one of the dwarf walls in your conservatory will help make sure your conservatory remains usable even in the cold Winter months.
But what about in the Summer months? At times during the warmer summer days it can feel like heat your conservatory heats up to an unbearable temperature and you’re living inside a greenhouse! Apart from opening doors and windows to help circulate air and keep the room cool, modern conservatory roof systems make a huge difference and help maintain a consistent, ambient temperature. A conservatory roof is exposed to over 68% of the Sun’s energy that hits your conservatory, so it goes without saying that having some protection and insulation from it plays a very important role in controlling your conservatories temperature.
A solid conservatory roof system transforms your conservatory into a multi-purpose room that you can make use of all year round. The temperature remains consistent and controlled throughout meaning you can make best use of your extra living space all year, whether you’re hosting bonfire parties in November or barbecues in July, the conservatory provides that luxurious space to relax in.
A conservatory shouldn’t be a luxury that you can only use at certain times of the year. When you add a conservatory to your home you are paying for quality and style so you need to be able to take advantage of this extra space whenever you want to! With a solid conservatory roof system you can create a cosy little snug to read in the winter, use it as a dining room to hold dinner parties or use it as a room to keep your favourite plants safe through the colder winter months. A solid conservatory roof system gives you flexibility all year round.
