A conservatory is a beautiful way to add extra space to your home and create a versatile multi-functional room that helps to connect the inside and outside worlds. However, there are several issues that can affect how well a conservatory works. Thankfully, most of these can be resolved with the right solutions.
Modern UPVC conservatories are much more energy efficient than ever before. They are able to achieve a very high level of thermal performance thanks to innovations in glass and insulation technology. This means that your conservatory will be warmer in winter and cooler in summer, allowing you to use it all year round.
Conservatories can come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The most popular option is the P-shaped conservatory which has a lot of style, is good for drawing in sunlight and can fit well onto a variety of house styles. Alternatively, you can opt for the more traditional T-shaped design which is great for adding more storage space to your conservatory.
Another great option is the lantern roof which can be added to almost any type of conservatory. This second tier of windows helps to open up the space and let in more light while also offering great views of the sky. Like all Securahome glazed roofs, our lantern roofs are A rated and come with solar control so you can exclude up to 83% of the sun’s heat.
A common problem with conservatories is that they can become too hot during the summer and too cold in winter. This is because a conservatory does not have as much ventilation as other parts of your home so any water vapour in the air has nowhere to go and will cool down and turn back into liquid water leading to condensation. There are a few ways to combat this issue including improving the insulation or installing heating but the best solution is to install effective vents in your conservatory.
Over time your conservatory can become a magnet for dirt, with the uPVC roof panels covered in moss and algae and the gutters filled with leaves. Keeping on top of cleaning your conservatory can be a difficult task but a professional team can help. They will clean the roof, uPVC windows and doors, uPVC frames, ornamentation, sills, and guttering in a quick and efficient manner.
