Keep Your Conservatory Warm This Winter
Cold weather has swept across the country, and with some parts of the UK now seeing lower temperatures than Moscow this definitely feels like one of the colder winters we have seen in the last few years. With the colder weather comes many conservatory owners looking for a way to increase insulation in the room; as a result we often asked how do you keep a conservatory warm?
How do you improve insulation in a conservatory?
Trying to heat a conservatory can be extremely inefficient. This is because, the majority of all heat will escape through the glazed roof. As such, anything creating an extra layer of insulation between the hot air in the room and the glass in the roof will keep the heat in; and you’ll have a room that’s much easier to heat and a lot more comfortable to use during winter.
Why use blinds to help create insulation?
One of the main advantages of using blinds compared to other insulation methods; such as having a solid roof fitted, is flexibility. Many people buy a conservatory specifically so they can have a room that has a nice light and airy atmosphere when it’s sunny outside. So while replacing the conservatory roof with a solid structure will help with insulation; it also permanently destroys the entire atmosphere of the room; turning it into a space that’s like any other part of the house.
With roof blinds you have total control over the insulation and atmosphere of your conservatory. When you want to have warmer conservatory during the winter you can extend the roof blinds for insulation; and you still have the option to retract the blinds and let the light in when it is sunnier again.
What are the best blinds to use?
Duette® fabrics are ideal for those looking to keep in the heat, as they have been designed with a special ‘honeycomb’ structure that creates a proper insulating layer. For those looking for a more traditional look, our pure™ Pinoleum Blinds are available with an optional solar lining that improves their ability to insulate a conservatory against heat loss, as well as keeping heat out during the summer.
A key detail with roof blinds is to make sure there are as few gaps as possible; as the more glass is covered with fabric the better insulation you will have. Thanks to our years of experience in making and fitting blinds for conservatory roofs. We are able to make neat-fitting roof blinds that cover as much of the glass as possible.
