Pros And Cons Of Thermotec Conservatory Roof PanelsBy admin
Friday, 10 January 2020
Tired of abandoning your conservatory during the winter? Fed-up with an unusable conservatory during the summer? Wish that your conservatory could be used without worry throughout the year? You’re not alone…
In the February of 2018, the UK braced for the lowest temperatures in five years and in the June of 2018, the UK braced for temperatures in the mid-30s… showing that in the space of just a few months, the temperature in the UK can hit both ends of extreme!
Conservatories are not known to stay at a consistent temperature and as many homeowners struggle to heat the most insulated parts of their properties, the perpetually bad temperature regulation of a conservatory falls by the wayside, as does the usability of the space.
The good news is that there have been quite a few innovative insulation products designed to combat the temperature extremes in a conservatory. The bad news is that not all of them are as effective as the marketing might like you to believe.
So, which is best?
Let’s take a closer look at one product designed to help with conservatory heat control by considering the pros and cons of Thermotec conservatory roof panels…
The panels can help you to save energy and act as a good source of conservatory insulation. Heat will stay contained inside the conservatory for longer with the panels secured to the exterior
Pros of Thermotec Conservatory Roof Panels
Thermotec roof panels are designed fit the glazing panels on your conservatory, and are one of many conservatory roof covering options on the market. The system is fitted to the exterior, blocking light from entering the conservatory via the roof.
Thermotec conservatory roof panels offer some good benefits to your conservatory, including:
Advantage One: Custom-Made
Each Thermotec roof panel is custom-made from aluminium to fit the shape of your glazing. This means that the design is tailor-made to perfectly fit your conservatory roof – there are also a range of colours available.
Advantage Two: Saves Energy
The panels can help you to save energy and act as a good source of conservatory insulation. Heat will stay contained inside the conservatory for longer with the panels secured to the exterior.
Advantage Three: Doesn’t Compromise the Roof
Due to the custom-finish, the panels don’t affect how watertight your conservatory roof is or damage the flashing. The panels are also very lightweight, at around only 75mm thick.
All that custom design starts to add up. If you have a large number of glass panels on your roof, then the cost of construction and installation will start to get alarmingly high
Cons of Thermotec Conservatory Roof Panels
While there are a good selection of pros to Thermotec roof panels, there are also cons that need to be considered before you choose the insulation product for your conservatory. Here are some of the main disadvantages of Thermotec roof panels:
Disadvantage One: Expensive
All that custom design starts to add up. If you have a large number of glass panels on your roof, then the cost of construction and installation will start to get very high.
Disadvantage Two: Unappealing Finish
The appeal of a conservatory for many is in the exterior appearance – all that beautiful glass that draws the eye. Thermotec coverings completely hide the glass underneath and whilst there are colours available for the panels, the finished appearance is certainly not going to appeal to everyone.
Disadvantage Three: Exposed to the Weather
Glass is a pretty hardy material and very capable of standing up to most types of extreme weather. Once the aluminium panels are installed, they’re going to take the brunt of the weather damage. Seeing as aluminium is quite prone to corrosion, this could end up ruining the appeal of your conservatory.
Hidden under beautiful interior panelling, the insulation works behind the scenes, protecting your conservatory from common problems like excess moisture and noise infiltration. Originally developed by NASA, this form of insulation has what it takes to deliver the conservatory of your dreams
Are There Any Alternatives ?
Thermotec roof panels are one option for conservatory roof insulation, but they’re not the only product on the market worthy of a consideration. There are other products that share similar benefits, but that don’t have the same kind of drawbacks.
One excellent product to consider, this time installed on the interior of your conservatory roof, is multi-foil insulation.
Multi-foil insulation is incredibly effective at keeping the interior of your conservatory warm, dry, and comfortable without drastically changing the appearance of the exterior. Like loft insulation, the material can be installed on the underside of the roof, giving you a brilliantly regulated conservatory temperature.
