How Can I Keep My Conservatory Warm This Winter?

Posted by Clare Whitehall on Nov 13, 2018

A conservatory can be a great addition to any home, but as winter approaches it can become unusable. Heating it can be a hard task, as a glass roof means it won’t retain heat very well. A combination of heating bills and not being able to use part of your home can be frustrating, especially if it’s too hot to use in summer and way too cold to use in winter - reaching a balance can seem impossible.

Though, here at Projects4Roofing, we may have the answer to your worries. We can provide a new tiled replacement conservatory roof that'll make your conservatory feel like a home extension but for the fraction of the cost.

Why Is My Conservatory So Cold In The Winter?

If your conservatory roof is slightly older and still features either a traditional glass or polycarbonate roof it’s most probably very poorly insulated - this is what makes it way too hot in the summer and freezing cold in the winter.

An older conservatory is usually not very energy efficient either. This can mean that heat escapes quickly and you’ll spend a lot more money on heating the room, which could also suffer from damp as a result.

Replacing an outdated plastic or glass roof with a new insulated one, such as the Guardian Warm Roof, could transform the appearance of your conservatory along with the acoustics and how often it is used.

What Is The 'Guardian Warm Roof System'?

We are a proud supplier of the Guardian Warm Roof System. It is a unique and innovative solution which can transform an unusable existing conservatory into a ‘cosy’ living space, which you can use rain or shine. It’ll replace your existing glass or polycarbonate roof whilst retaining the original windows, doors, frames and walls. Our experts will be able to change your roof in just a few days with very little disruption to your household routines. You’ll also be able to personalise your roof with a choice of roof tiles and finishes - so you can choose the ones that best match your home.

How Efficient Is It?

The Guardian roof is fully energy efficient, achieving an impressive maximum U value of 0.18 W/m2K. This is achieved with our insulated roof system, comprising of a pre-engineered lightweight frame, two layers of rigid insulation board, internally insulated plasterboard, exterior grade plywood and a vapour membrane. All this works together to create a thermally efficient living space, keeping the warm air out in the summer and stopping heat from escaping in the winter and therefore saving the amount of heat energy needed to keep the room at a comfortable temperature.

Does a Conservatory Conversion Have Any Benefits?

When you choose a Guardian Warm Roof, you can expect many benefits including:

    • Adding Value To Your Home
    • Making Your Conservatory Much More Thermally Efficient
    • Costing a Fraction Of The Price Of a New Conservatory
    • Giving You Greater Temperature Control
