Why is my conservatory so cold?

Categories: Blog Posts

If you install a conservatory in your home then there is a good chance that you will want to use it as a place to relax, to come together or simply to sit and watch the world go by. This is fine during those warmer months, but some conservatory owners find that as the weather starts to cool down, so does their conservatory.

Here at Total Roofcare we believe that you should be able to enjoy your conservatory the whole year round, so with this in mind we have put together our guide to the reasons behind and ways to beat a ‘too-cool’ conservatory.

Reasons why you may be feeling the chill

Wondering why your conservatory is so cold? If you are then let us tell you some of the most common reasons.

One of the biggest cause of a cold conservatory has to be the roof that you have installed. Any hot air that has built up in your conservatory will quickly start to escape through the glazing on the roof.

It isn’t only the roof that could be letting out all that precious warm air, any gaps in the windows and doors could also be causing the issue and these should be checked over.

How you can beat the cold

If you have checked over your conservatory and you are still struggling with the chill in the air, then it may be time to address the issue further. Once you have ticked off the windows and doors as not being the culprit you may need to look at the way that you currently heat the space.

There is a reason that underfloor heating is recommended for conservatories. It is a cost effective and efficient way of raising the temperature in your conservatory and also feels lovely when you walk on it too. Underfloor heating can also be controlled separately to your central heating, which is a must when it comes to meeting building regulations.

A simple way to trap in heat is to install blinds throughout the space. When drawn down they will stop the heat from escape, warming up the space.

For a long term solution to your cold conservatory issues you may find that a solid roof conversion is ideal.

By installing a ThermeRoof by Total Roofcare in your conservatory you will find you can create a warm and inviting space. It not only keeps the heat in during the colder months, but when the sun is beating down it can also stop any sun damage on the flooring, furniture and homewares.
