Does insulating a conservatory roof work?
With the cost of living crisis beginning to take hold, it is understandable that homeowners throughout the UK are beginning to look at ways to improve the insulation around their homes, and more specifically their conservatories.
One obvious cause for concern is the original glass or polycarbonate you most likely have as your current conservatory roof, but does insulating a conservatory roof actually work. In short, yes it does, but let’s look at the advantages.
Your conservatory is too hot
Yes our summers do appear to be getting warmer but as you’ll know it doesn’t need to be the height of summer for your poorly insulated conservatory to become too hot to enjoy.
For any conservatory that is too hot in the summer the major culprit is the roof, rather than the doors or the windows. Poorly insulated materials that are used for the glazing makes it difficult to both insulate and control the temperature, and has the same effect as a greenhouse.
This is where conservatory roof insulation can help, and not only help to keep the heat out, but can also prevent some of the bleaching damage that can occur on carpets and furniture.
Your conservatory is too cold
So at the opposite end of the spectrum we have a conservatory that is too cold. Of course we can use a variety of methods to heat it up and keep it warm, but with the current crisis, and even before, it can end up being quite costly especially in colder parts of the UK.
Again, for any conservatory that is too cold the culprit is the roof, and in a similar way to it gaining heat in the summer, it loses it in the winter.
This is where conservatory roof insulation can help, and not only help to keep the heat in, but can also help to reduce noise from the wind and the rain.
How does conservatory roof insulation work?
For all our insulations we use a unique multi-layer reflective foil quilt. Made with aluminium for maximum thermal performance, the reflective properties keep the living space warm in winter and cool in summer with an effective solar overheating barrier.
What are all the benefits of conservatory roof insulation?
As well as being substantially warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer offering you increased comfort, the high energy efficiency gains will save you money on your energy bills. It will also be a much quieter living space in bad weather and there will be a reduction in sun bleaching from UV rays.
To sum it up:
- Warmer in the winter
- Cooler in the summer
- Increased comfort
- High energy efficiency
- No sun bleaching
- Quieter living space
What would you do with the extra space – an office, a playroom, a gym or perhaps somewhere to dine or watch TV?
