Are Insulated Conservatory Roofs Any Good?

Insulated conservatory roofs are a great way to transform your conservatory into a multifunctional living space all year round without the expense or inconvenience of having a proper extension added to your home.

Conservatory insulations offers homeowners a cost-effective way of getting the most from a conservatory, no matter the weather. Upgrading existing conservatory glass or polycarbonate roofs is considerably cheaper than a replacement conservatory roof or solid roof, so it’s no wonder so many people choose to upgrade.

Benefits Of An Insulated Conservatory Roof

Whether you are looking to install a replacement conservatory roof or improve an existing one, insulation could be the answer for you.

There are many benefits to insulated conservatory roofs. Whether you have a glass roof or polycarbonate roof, getting in touch with us could save you a lot of money. 

Here are some of the benefits of insulating your conservatory roof:

Make Your Conservatory More Energy Efficient

If you are looking to reduce your carbon footprint and save money on energy bills, then conservatory insulation should be at the top of your list.

Heat loss during the winter means you’ll spend a lot more money trying to keep the room at a pleasant temperature.

Energy efficiency is important in any home, and insulating a conservatory can help you to reduce energy bills and retain heat. 

The measurement for heat loss is known as the ‘U-Value’; the lower a U-Value, the better the insulation. The average U-value of a conservatory roof often ranges from 1.1 to 1.7. The U-Value after our insulation process is an impressive 0.175.

Keep Cool In The Summer

While thermal efficiency is a problem in the winter, keeping your conservatory cool enough in hotter months can often be a problem. An insulated, conservatory roof will stop too much sun coming in and heating the room without denying you natural light.

Having a manageable temperature in your conservatory makes it an extra room that can be used year-round.

Most people think of a conservatory as somewhere you can enjoy during the summer months, but you can end up with a greenhouse effect if it is in direct sunlight. The double glazing on your windows and glass panels in the ceiling can turn what should be a lovely sunroom into a stifling glass box.

Though a common use of an insulated roof is to keep a room warm in the winter (and it does), people tend to forget that it can help protect against the summer heat.

Make Your Conservatory Quieter In Bad Weather

If you have a glass or polycarbonate roof, the sound of the rain drumming off it in bad weather can get extremely loud.

Insulation will help to quieten that sound, meaning you can enjoy the room in all weather conditions; after all, who can enjoy relaxing with a good book when it sounds like a band of drummers are on your roof!

Protection From UV Rays

As some UV rays can pass through the glass and weaken the materials of your furniture, insulation will help to protect the contents of your conservatory against harmful UV rays, making it a safe space to work, rest, and play.

No mention of fading of furniture! Something a lot of customers comment on

Give Your Conservatory A New Look

Our premium insulation service will give an old conservatory a new lease of life.

Make Your Conservatory More Functional

Whether you are looking for a space for the kids to play, an alternative sitting room, or even an office area for home working, insulation can work out to be a cost-effective home improvement.

A conservatory roof replacement or extension will not only be expensive; you may even have to jump through the hoops of getting planning permission or building regulations. 

Our insulations will be fixed to the inside of your conservatory and so we will not make any structural changes to your existing conservatory.

It is always nice to have a bit of extra space whether you want somewhere to relax with a book or even have a new room to watch your favourite shows, films or sports.

You will be able to transform your existing conservatory into a normal functioning room without losing any of its original charms – the windows will still let in plenty of natural light.
