Conservatory are often used as a recreational room in the home for multiple purposes. Like other rooms in the home, they can get too hot or too cold without the proper conservatory roof insulation. Luckily, we can provide free quotes for anyone in need of insulation.
Properly Insulating a Conservatory
A conservatory is one of the hardest rooms in the home to insulate. This is because it has very specific walls and roofing in order to keep the room lit by the sun. Typical roof insulation options would completely cover this transparent surface and block the sunlight. This can defeat the purpose of having the room installed in the first place. However, there are various options available which can be discussed in more detail by one of our professional conservatory roof insulation specialists.
What to Look for in Conservatory Roof Insulation
When it comes to conservatory roof insulation, it’s important to look for an option that will keep the room cool in summer and warm in the winter. The latter is important otherwise you will feel like you are walking outside in your home whenever you step into your conservatory in the winter. Another factor to consider is the “U” value of the insulation. The lower the “U” value, the less heat is able to escape through the material.
Options to Consider
Conservatory roof insulation options can involve changing the actual roof of the conservatory, or adding material to help insulate it better. One popular but more expensive option is to install a glass roof which is sealed with a gas such as argon which is great for insulation. There are also solar film inserts available which are almost like “tints” that can help your conservatory to be more insulated. Blinds are another option and are effective, but they are becoming outdated with new modern alternatives.
Hiring a Professional to Install Insulation
When it comes to insulating your conservatory, it’s always best to use a professional company. They will be able to help you decide what insulation works best for your type of conservatory, and there may be a warranty included should anything need repairing or replacing in the future. Using a professional will also ensure that the job will be completed quickly, which is especially important if you have decided on a new roof for better insulation. If the conservatory has been included in your home insurance, it might void the cover to install insulation yourself.
