How can I reduce the temperature in my conservatory?

Conservatories have improved during the last 10 years and the older style conservatories always get too hot in the summer due to their glass or polycarbonate roofs. A new thermally efficient conservatory roof replacement will ensure your conservatory extension maintains its temperature all year round. Keeping it cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Why does a new conservatory roof reduce the temperature?

Reducing the temperature in your conservatory extension with a high-performance insulated roof system. The roof is made from:

pre-engineered lightweight frame
2 layers of rigid insulation board
internal insulated plasterboard
exterior grade plywood
vapour membrane

All of this gives you a thermally efficient space in your home. Compare this to the older style glass or polycarbonate roofs and you can understand why there is such a difference in temperature. Your new replacement is fully tested and approved to all thermal and structural standards. It will keep the warm air out in the summer and prevent the heat from escaping in the winter. Providing you with savings on your energy bills as well as making it a usable space in your home.

How does a warm roof regulate the temperature?

Glass Roof

Older style conservatories that have glass roofs get hot due to the sun shining through. You can have special types of glass that act as a filter between the two, accepting the sunlight whilst reducing the amount of the sun’s heat that transmitted into a conservatory through the glass.  Unfortunately, this wasn’t commonly used in the construction of older style conservatories.

Polycarbonate roof

Older style polycarbonate roofs make your conservatory hot as polycarbonate isn’t a great thermal insulator. Also, it is unable to keep the warmth in when the temperatures drop or the heat out when the sun is out. This makes your conservatory feel like an unbearably hot greenhouse.
