Conservatory Too Hot

Too hot this summer?


Conservatory too hot? 3 Options You Have To Cool Off.

Conservatories can be the best room in your house to make the most of the British summer. Not only is it the best place to entertain friends and family, it is the best place to relax and enjoy your garden in full bloom.

However, all too often the conservatory will get too hot and feel less like a garden room and more like a greenhouse. This is particularly true if you have a south facing conservatory where the sun will heat the conservatory throughout the whole day.

So, when the heat is on, it can be very tempting to pay any price for cooler air without weighing up the advantages and disadvantages of each solution.

The first step to getting a cooler conservatory is to identify the issue, which is normally a polycarbonate conservatory roof which is not providing any solar protection. If you are feeling the heat, this is probably because your polycarbonate conservatory roof is offering you very little protection from heat and UV radiation, which is making your conservatory seem less like a sun room and more like a greenhouse.


So, what are the options for making your conservatory cooler?

Replacing your conservatory roof with a better quality material is definitely the most sustainable solution for keeping your conservatory cool for the years and years to follow. After the initial payment for the replacement conservatory roof, it does not use any electricity and will not emit any carbon emissions, which makes it a sustainable, environmentally friendly solution. Conservatories with better quality roofs also have better insulating properties which means that they also require less heating in the winter months.

See these three long-term solutions to get a cooler conservatory this summer

Option 1: Replace your polycarbonate roof with a glass conservatory

Replacing the roof on your conservatory with a quality glass material is probably the best way to ensure you can not only use your conservatory in the summer.
