You would imagine that the majority of conservatory owners will be using their home extension frequently over the Christmas and New Year periods. Not necessarily so as their conservatory may offer poor insulation in winter.
A large number of ageing conservatories sit empty at this time of year as they feel extremely cold inside, much to the understandable annoyance of their owners.
It doesn’t have to be this way though!
There are ways and means of heating a conservatory so that you can use it as and when you like. Here are 3 of them:
1. Add some blinds
Conservatories with polycarbonate roofs and single glazed windows are most susceptible to draughts. Any noticeable draughts can be kept out from the interior via a set of blinds.
You can buy a host of different blinds for conservatories:
• Venetian blinds
• Roller blinds
• Roman blinds
• Vertical blinds
• Pleated blinds
They come supplied in various materials and colours, so assess all the options before making your final choice.
Ahead of their installation, take accurate measurements and once they’re in place, draw and open them accordingly. They’re also useful for when you want to shut off the eyes of the world from peering inside.
2. Put down some floor coverings
When we feel the cold on our feet it travels up our bodies and has you quickly running for somewhere warmer. That’s what you experience when you walk into a conservatory with a cold floor.
The best solution is to add one or more floor coverings, namely a cosy rug or mat so that your feet never come into contact with the surface of the conservatory.
You can buy rugs and mats in a number of different colours. There’s nothing to stop you being bold with your choice and opting for vibrant colours like a daring red or nature-like green.
3. Commission a solid roof installation
A lot of conservatories lose heat through their current roof covering. It therefore makes sense to replace the existing roof for a roofing system that provides a greater level of insulation – we’re talking about a solid roof.
The existing base and structure of your conservatory can remain intact as all that’s required to position a solid roof in place is to integrate it once the old roof covering has been removed.
You can have a solid roof composed of either lightweight slates or tiles and accessorise the design with an additional extras you feel necessary such as roof windows or spotlights if you’re thinking about using the conservatory at night.
