How to Keep a Conservatory Cool
Feeling the Heat This Summer? Here’s How to Cool Things Down with the Right Conservatory Upgrades.
If your conservatory is in need of modernisation and suffers from poor roof insulation, failing double glazing or poor construction, it is likely to be too hot to use comfortably in the summer months or on particularly warm days.
The most reliable and long-lasting way to improve your conservatory’s heat insulation is to upgrade or completely replace the roof. Brackenwood recommends replacing an old, damaged or leaking conservatory roof with a solid roof construction. Solid roofs provide better insulation and regulation, ensuring your conservatory stays cool on hot days and is enjoyable to use all year round.
Another great way to ensure your conservatory stays cool, even on the hottest days, is to invest in some thermally efficient internal blinds, which can be fitted inside your conservatory’s double glazing. A good set of conservatory blinds will keep you shaded from the sun, trap heat inside during winter and provide additional privacy. There are many varieties, colours and styles of blind to choose from — you can even opt for made-to-measure blinds that will fit your conservatory perfectly.
You could also consider replacing the exterior doors. New sliding, folding or French doors can make a significant difference to the security, heat insulation and visual appeal of your conservatory. Brackenwood can provide bespoke conservatory patio doors that are made to match your construction and have A++ rated glazed panels.
