Many homeowners find their conservatories unusable in the summer because they become too warm to use comfortably. During the winter, they can feel too cold to use, especially if they are unheated.
If you have a conservatory that only feels comfortable to use for a few short weeks in the spring or autumn, there is a simple solution that can transform your conservatory into a comfortable, pleasant space that you can enjoy all year round – conservatory roof insulation.
Contrary to popular belief, insulated conservatory roofs aren’t just effective during winter. During the summer, your insulation can help keep your space cool and your furniture and soft furnishings protected from fading by strong sunlight. Wooden furniture in your conservatory will also be less likely to dry out, split, and crack.
What is Conservatory Roof Insulation?
Conservatory roof insulation is a layer of material installed between your conservatory’s roof and ceiling. This material helps to trap heat inside the conservatory in the winter and keeps it cool in the summer by being a physical barrier to penetrating heat from the sun.
Various insulation materials are available, but ConservaHeat uses a high-performance genuine aluminium multi-layered blanket designed by insulation experts Ecohome-Insulation. It is considered a much more effective and efficient choice than other conservatory roof insulation material options.
We also offer a Composite Slate Conservatory Tiled Roof System. This can transform the outside appearance of your conservatory along with the thermal effectiveness of the inside using our ConservaHeat system.
The Benefits of Conservatory Roof Insulation
Insulation helps to retain heat inside the conservatory during winter and keep the space cool and comfortable during summer. This not only enhances your comfort but also translates into substantial energy cost savings, making it a highly rewarding investment.
A well-insulated conservatory will be much more comfortable to use all year round. You won’t have to worry about it being too hot or cold. In the winter, you can enjoy your conservatory without worrying about the cold; in the summer, you can relax in a cool and comfortable space.
If you want to help keep your conservatory in good condition and lasting longer, adding insulation can help protect it from the harshest weather that Mother Nature can throw at it. Adding insulation is an excellent way to extend its lifespan and make it a more valuable asset should you wish to sell your property in the future. The insulation will also help to keep the roof from rotting or delamination and help to prevent condensation build-up, a leading cause of dampness, mould and mildew.
A well-insulated conservatory is more attractive to potential buyers and can be a key selling point for your property. This can make it easier to sell your home if you decide to move. Houses with good quality conservatories with roof insulation sell for an average of £1,000 more than those without.
