Conservatory Too Warm? Here's How To Solve It For Good

Conservatory Too Warm too Hot

All too often, the actual experience of a conservatory doesn’t live up to expectations, leaving you with an expensive white elephant, devoid of its original purpose.

There’s no denying that this additional room is subject to extreme fluctuations of temperature, rendering it unusable for a substantial part of the year.

Of course, when this extra living space starts to feel sweltering, it can be tempting to crank up the air-con-whatever the cost.

If your conservatory is starting to feel more greenhouse than garden room, a few of these handy Home Logic Tips are sure to get your conservatory temperature firmly back on track…

 

Polycarbonate Provides Inadequate Protection

Providing inadequate protection from both UV radiation and heat, polycarbonate roofs offer little shelter from solar glare, resulting in blinding brightness, and, ultimately, faded conservatory furniture.

For those with South-facing conservatories, subject to sun exposure 24/7, the age-old problems of glare and stuffiness are further exacerbated, with little hope of reprieve until Autumn.

It’s also an unfortunate truism that our country can be beset by a deluge of rain-even in Summer.

Consequently, the age-old ‘drumming’ noise experienced by those with polycarbonate roofs can provide an unwelcome background track to any efforts of entertaining.

Conservatory Roof Glass Replacement

There are a couple of other additional benefits that are worth a mention. Glass will allow an increased amount of light into internal rooms, so that the conservatory becomes much lighter and brighter-without becoming overwhelmingly warm in the process

Replace Your Polycarbonate Roof With Glass

One measure to consider is replacing your polycarbonate roof with a glass one instead.

Most glass roofs are fitted with a solar control coating, lessening the effect of the sun’s infiltration by reflecting more than three quarters of radiant heat.

There are a couple of other additional benefits that are worth a mention. Glass will allow an increased amount of light into internal rooms, so that the conservatory becomes much lighter and brighter-without becoming overwhelmingly warm in the process.

It can also help to reduce external rain noise considerably.

Yet there’s no denying that the cost of this choice is prohibitive. Perhaps it’s time to think again…

Replace Your Polycarbonate Roof With Tiles

Another popular option amongst homeowners is to opt for a tiled conservatory roof instead.

However, although this achieves a modicum of sophistication in regards to aesthetics, this roof type has minimal functional merits to speak of.

Indeed, it’s incredibly time-consuming to install (taking between 5-7 days on average), with the exorbitant labour costs to go with it; costs in excess of £12,000.

Enhanced aesthetics aside, this roof choice simply seems like a case of dressing up an issue, rather than fixing it. It’s enough to leave you feeling all hot under the collar-quite literally!

If only there was a sophisticated solution that could be relied on all year round…
