Cooling Down Your Conservatory – Advice On How To Do It

Cooling Down Your Conservatory – Advice On How To Do It

The heat of summer can really get to some conservatories, causing them to overheat inside and become unusable throughout much of the season – it happens a lot with old, poorly insulated designs.

Not with a TWC conservatory, as our living spaces are summer-proof and made to be used in July as much as they are in January.

If you need a cooler conservatory to make the most of the location over the summer or you would like to buy a conservatory that’s energy efficient at all times, we have some tips you can employ.

A Solid Roof Installation

Your existing glass or polycarbonate roof could be removed and replaced with a solid tiled roof, which will regulate the temperature more effectively by keeping out any excess heat so that it stays cool.

The vastly improved energy efficiency will ensure you don’t sweat buckets inside and enjoy the same comfort you get in other areas of the house.

We can include solar control glazing if you would like a glass roof conservatory, to prevent the build-up of warmth, which will provide a great aerial view and help draw in loads of natural light.

Bi-Folding Doors

For improved temperature control, you could also have a bi-folding door fitted into your conservatory. Embrace its large opening whenever you want to enhance internal airflow and ventilation.

Keep them open all day if the weather allows you to and bring the feeling of nature into the confines of the conservatory.

Make a seamless transition from the indoors to the outdoors via the unique opening that only a bi-folding door can deliver.

A Few Other Suggestions

It’s all about ventilation and you can get more of it by making use of your windows’ opening function and having a ceiling fan installed to help to circulate cool air around the space.

Potted plants and greenery can also cool the atmosphere around you as they will realise moisture into the air – transpiration is the name for this natural process.

Your love for conservatory living in summer will be restored no matter which of these pieces of advice you decide to enact on.
