In the UK, the conservatory used to be a much-loved part of our home. A bright room with unrivalled garden views for dining, or a cosy nook for reading, or a second sitting room.
However, for many, this dream remains unrealised. Conservatories often transform into underused storage areas or disused dining rooms. Why? The primary reason is their inability to maintain a comfortable temperature – too cold for most of the year and prohibitively expensive to heat. But what if you could transform your conservatory into the warm, inviting space it was meant to be?
Why are conservatories cold in the first place?
Conservatories are typically constructed with a significant amount of glass with the addition of a polycarbonate roof – materials notorious for poor insulation. In winter, glass struggles to retain heat, allowing warmth to escape and cold to permeate. Additionally, many conservatories lack adequate insulation in their roofs, further exacerbating the problem. The result is a room that’s chilly, draughty, and expensive to heat… and a greenhouse temperature only your most hardy houseplants would enjoy.
Make a warmer space through furnishings
One way to counteract the chill is through strategic furnishings. Adding thick rugs can insulate the floor, while heavy curtains or blinds can provide a barrier against cold windows. These additions not only offer practical warmth but also enhance the aesthetic appeal, making the space more inviting.
Make sure the space is heated
Heating a conservatory can be a challenge, especially since many are not connected to the home’s central heating for planning reasons. However, alternative solutions exist. Electric heaters or mobile oil heaters can be effective, though they should be used responsibly and with consideration to energy efficiency.
Improve the insulation
The most effective way to warm up your conservatory is by improving its insulation. This involves a few key steps:
- Double glazing: Replace single-pane windows with double glazing to reduce heat loss.
- Sealing gaps: Ensure all windows and doors are properly sealed to prevent draughts.
- Insulating the conservatory roof: This is where significant heat loss occurs. Insulating the roof can drastically reduce this, keeping the conservatory warm in winter and cool in summer.
