Relaxing in your conservatory is a wonderful way to spend your free time, whether chilling with a good book, chatting with family and friends, or simply enjoying the view of your garden. However, you may occasionally find yourself being distracted from your peace and quiet because of external noise.
Noise pollution can be a difficult thing to ignore, especially if faced with listening to revving cars, loud neighbours, or even the sound of rain and wind. But, by making some changes to your conservatory, you can reduce the amount of travelling noise your ears are privy to. Follow our advice on ways to reduce noise pollution in your conservatory.
Better quality windows
While the rest of your home’s walls are built from brick and cement, your conservatory’s walls are made of glass, which is not as protective of external sound. If your conservatory is celebrating double digit birthdays, then installing better quality double glazing may mean you’re listening to less external noise.
Enjoy the benefits of draught proofing
If new windows are not something you want to budget for at the moment, then look into ways you can temporarily soundproof the walls. In the same way you’d draught proof, sealing windows with special tape can help keep out the noise. Not only will you reduce noise pollution using this method, but, combine it with draught proofing the rest of your home, and you could end up saving £25-£50 a year on your energy bills!
Draw your curtains or blinds
If you’ve got curtains or blinds in your conservatory, then why not test whether the noise reduces when they are closed? Heavier curtains are the most effective at reducing noise, but are often not the first choice when it comes to conservatory window furnishings. Even thinner curtains and blinds can help reduce noise slightly, or at the very least can put the noise producers out of sight and out of mind!
Add a rug
Understandably, you may not want to carpet the entirety of your conservatory. After all, it is the between space of your garden and your home. Instead, invest in a rug. Miraculously, a rug or carpeting, appears to trap noise and stop it from spreading. Whether that is indoor footsteps, or catching external noise before it bounces of your walls, a rug is a simple and stylish way to keep your conservatory quiet.
Replace your roofing
Getting rid of your existing glass of polycarbonate roofing and replacing with a solid roof is a permanent option to reducing the amount of external noise you hear while in your conservatory.
Replacing your roofing with a tailored solution like our ThermeRoof means noise will be reduced. The multiple layers of insulation will limit the amount of external noise you’ll hear while in your conservatory and will also help regulate the temperature of the room.
With ThermeRoof constructed of lightweight aluminium and effective layers of solid insulation, thin but effective layers of insulation and a plasterboard interior roof, you’ll no longer be bothered by the loud the drip, drip, drop of rain pouring on your roof, as the sound of it will be significantly reduced.
