Do Conservatory Roof Blinds Reduce Heat?
Conservatories are a great addition to any home. It allows for customers to add an extra room to their home which can be transformed into either a lounge, kitchen, playroom or even in some cases a bedroom. Conservatories are also a popular choice as they tend to be cheaper than a extension. However, with conservatories comes a vast amount of glazing – with most conservatories having a glass roof and various side windows and doors. As a result, many find in hard to control temperatures in the room. In the summer months the room can become very hot, and in the winter months very cold. We are frequently asked do conservatory roof blinds reduce heat?
Conservatory blinds can be a great way to reduce the amount of heat in the room. But, customers have to ensure they opt for the right blind range and carefully pick if they want blinds for the roof, side windows or both.
Duette® Pleated Blinds
Their unique honeycomb structure creates an extra layer of insulation which helps prevent heat from escaping in the colder weather, while still preventing over heating in the warmer months. Duette® Pleated Blinds offer an alternative style to your room with all wires and cording holes being hidden within the fabric.
pure™ Pleated Blinds
Similar to the Duette® Pleated Blinds , pure™ pleated blinds also provide a level of insulation to the conservatory. pure™ pleated blinds are particularly good for those with awkward shaped windows in their conservatory. This is because, when paired with our bespoke pure™ rail we can find a solution for almost any shaped window; including triangular shaped windows.
The majority of the heat enters through the roof; for this reason we highly recommend conservatory roof blinds. However, many opt for both conservatory roof and side window blinds for various reasons:
- To improve the overall appearance of the room
- To prevent problems which occur with a low winter sun
- Reduce glare
- Increase privacy and security (especially important for those who convert their conservatory into an additional bedroom)
Reducing heat with Roof Lantern BlindsRoof lanterns are a main feature of orangeries and are now a popular addition to many extensions. However, similar to a conservatory roof they can make the room feel very warm in the summer months. They can also create problems during the colder months as heat escapes through the glazing. This means the room can become cold and uncomfortable. We can fix this easily with our superb fitted lantern roof blinds. Just like how conservatory roof blinds work, lantern roof blinds are also great for temperature control. We have designed the Duette® fabrics used for horizontal lantern roof blinds to be excellent at controlling temperature.
A benefit of using lantern roof blinds is they reduce the volume of air in the room. This means that you won’t have to spend as much on energy to efficiently heat the room. The frame used, means there are no gaps at the side of the fabrics to let heat escape. Plus, we are able to cover most lantern roofs with just one or two blinds, for the neatest possible look.
All of our lantern roof blinds are available with various motorisation options including our purezero™ Remote Control system (designed for use with a small amount of blinds) and battery powered motorisation (ideal for when there is no available power socket near the lantern), giving you complete control over your shading.Do conservatory roof blinds reduce heat?
