Why not make your conservatory usable all year round and make it into a fantastic space that everyone can enjoy. If you have a conservatory or have ever had one you will know that they can easily become a space which you use more for storage than a place for everyone to use.

The first thing you need to do is decide when and how you want to use the space. There are many different ways in which a conservatory can be used and you need to make it a defined space to ensure you get the most from it. 

If your conservatory is brand new it will already be warm and cost, however, older conservatories can be cold in the winter and too hot in the Summer, ultimately becoming a space which no one uses. 


Why Is Your Conservatory Cold In The Winter & Hot In The Summer? 

The main reason for this problem will be your conservatory roof and this is because the structure will have large windows with a plastic roof which lose heat a lot quicker than one which is insulated. Older conservatory windows were not designed to be as airtight and the roofs are not properly insulated compared to modern conservatory structures today. 

If you have a conservatory which is more than 15 years old then it is likely that your roof will not be insulated and energy-efficient. If you want to make the most of your conservatory then the first step will most certainly be replacing the roof for a Guardian Roof. 

A Guardian Roof will keep your conservatory warm in the winter months and will also stop thermal gain from sunlight hitting your roof in the summer, which will usually make it too hot and stuffy to use. 


Why Do Older Conservatories Get Hot? 

Glass has low thermal conductivity, as well as being transparent. When sunlight enters the transparent glass panels they turn into heat and then can’t escape which then creates a greenhouse effect. The heat then will accumulate and will become almost unbearable in the hot months. Swapping your older roof for a Guardian Roof will help make the room livable throughout the entire year. 


Replacing Your Conservatory Roof 

A solution to ensure you can use your conservatory all year round is by replacing your old roof with a Guardian Roof which is insulated and tiled which will suit the rest of your home perfectly. 

A new conservatory roof will be fully insulated making it easy to use all year round and also will help to reduce your heating bills. It will transform the overall look of your home from the outside in and will also increase the value of your home if you are thinking of selling up in the future. 

It used to be the case that conservatories had to have a certain percentage of their roofing clear and translucent for them to be exempt from planning permission, however, recent changes mean that you may not need planning permission for a solid roof conservatory in the UK. Guardian Roofs Preston will be able to advise you on this further.
