Does Insulating A Conservatory Roof Work?

If you’ve noticed that your conservatory gets too warm to enjoy in the summer and becomes a financial burden during the winter due to heat loss, you may want to consider insulating your existing conservatory roof.

Polycarbonate or glass roofs can look great and offer a beautifully bright room. Unfortunately, when it comes to functionality, they can let you down.

Letting too much sun in during the summer and failing to prevent heat loss in the winter can mean your conservatory does not get used as often as it could.

At Conservatory Insulations, we want to help you get the most out of your conservatories, which is why our innovative and exclusive designs are so popular.

How Conservatory Insulation Benefits Your Home

Conservatory insulation has several benefits that help make the installation a savvy investment for the future. Here are some of the top reasons you might want to insulate a conservatory…

Keeps Your Conservatory Warm In Winter

As you might expect, insulating conservatories can make a huge difference during the cold weather. Our exclusive ConservaHeat True Aluminium Foil quilt creates a complete thermal barrier for glass or polycarbonate roofs, offering unrivalled thermal performance.

By cutting off one of the biggest contributing factors of heat loss, our insulation can make a massive difference to your energy bills.

Keeps Your Conservatory Cool In The Summer

It is a popular misconception that insulating a conservatory will increase the heat build-up during warm weather. In fact, the opposite is true.

When it is extremely warm during the summer, polycarbonate and glass roof conservatories act like a greenhouse, with the sun shining right through. Our insulation actually reflects the sunlight coming through the full-length glazed panels, making it a lot easier to regulate the room’s temperature.

You won’t need to worry about a lack of natural light following the conservatory insulation installation either. The white uPVC cladding we use reflects the light that enters through the glass walls, meaning the space will remain fresh and bright.

Other conservatory insulation companies do not have access to the ConservaHeat True Aluminium Foil quilt that is specifically designed for use in direct sunlight. This makes our service the ideal solution for keeping your conservatory at a comfortable temperature all year round.

It Makes Your Conservatory Roof Quieter In Bad Weather

One issue you might have found with your old roof is the noise it makes during bad weather like torrential rain or hail. Sometimes it can get so bad you wouldn’t want to stay in the room!

Conservatory roof insulation can reduce that sound, transforming it from incessant drumming into ambient noise.

Stops UV Rays

As well as reducing the heat build-up from direct sunlight, insulating your conservatory roof can help to block out harmful UV rays and prevent your furniture looking unsightly or becoming weak to the point it needs replacing. The most harmful damage is undoubtedly caused in the summer months when your conservatory is the hottest room in the house.  Exposing your furniture and flooring to extreme heat as well as the sun’s UV rays causes further damage attacking the very bonding holding it together.

Our conservatory roof insulation system offers a robust solution to prevent faded furniture or overheating equipment and computers. The damaging UV rays will no longer be able to radiate into your conservatory through the roof thereby protecting your belongings and keeping the room cooler.

Aesthetically Pleasing

We make sure that we leave your conservatory absolutely spotless with a quality finish. Inside, we fit our white uPVC cladding that keeps the space looking bright and fresh. It is a very popular look that is fitted with a light sheen to help reflect the natural light in the room.

We also make sure to add our bespoke fitted tint to ensure your conservatory looks as great as ever from the outside, too. For more about the fitting and finish, click here.

It Makes Your Conservatory More Functional All Year-Round

Having a comfortable temperature in your conservatory all year round can transform the room and what you use it for.

Whether you’re looking for a functional dining space, a spare room to relax, a children’s play space or even a home office, moderating the temperature is vital.

Conservatory Insulation Can Be Cost-Effective

When you look at the savings that can be made on your energy bills, insulating your conservatory roof starts to make a lot of sense. But there are other ways that it can help to save you money…

By transforming existing conservatory roofs, you won’t have to worry about installing a solid roof. A replacement conservatory roof can be quite expensive and inconvenient due to the extensive work that will need to be done.

We can insulate an existing roof, usually within one day, and it does not require removing an entire conservatory structure!

Having the functionality that our insulation gives to a room can also be a great selling point if you’re thinking about moving. While a traditional roof can be a great addition, selling this as an extra room that can be used all year will be a real bonus.
