How roof insulation makes your conservatory useable year-round

Promo code: COOL20







Conservatories are a fantastic way to add more space and light to your home, but there's a catch - they're primarily made of glass, a poor insulator. This makes them notoriously difficult to keep warm in winter and cool in summer.

Modern conservatories are built with more energy-efficient components, making them less likely to become completely unusable in extreme weather. However, despite these improvements, many people still grapple with maintaining a consistently comfortable environment year-round.

One of the most popular solutions for this is adding roof insulation, and for good reason. A well-insulated roof not only improves the overall comfort of your conservatory, making it usable in all weather conditions, but also provides superior protection for its structure and furnishings. It's a win-win solution for both comfort and preservation!

At Ecozenic, we're all about helping you get the most out of your conservatory. Read on for our list of the top three reasons why roof insulation can make your conservatory a comfy haven, whatever the weather!

1. Traps heat in the winter

When the temperature starts to dip, it won’t take long for an uninsulated conservatory to get very cold, very fast. You’ll be left shivering and running for the warmth of your living room, leaving your conservatory abandoned for the next few months until spring comes around.

The main culprit for this rapid heat loss is almost always the roof: in a conservatory, around 80% of the heat escapes through a polycarbonate or glass roof due to its larger surface area.

When you insulate your conservatory’s roof, you create a solid barrier that blocks the warmth from escaping upwards. This trapped heat maintains a comfortable temperature in the conservatory, allowing you to enjoy its cosy atmosphere without cranking up the heating. As a bonus, you'll end up using less energy and saving money on your heating bills!

2. Keeps heat out in the summer

A lot of people focus more on the heat-retaining benefits of insulation, but it's just as essential in the scorching summer months – especially with Summer 2023 being the hottest on record.

Uninsulated conservatories can turn into ovens when it’s hot out, trapping the sun's heat and becoming unbearably warm. Roof insulation once again comes to the rescue here, as it reflects the sun's heat away from the conservatory and prevents the room from overheating. Not only does this keep your conservatory cool and comfortable, but it does so without the need for AC or fans (and the higher energy bills they come with).

3. Reduces window condensation

Condensation on your conservatory windows not only looks unsightly, blocking your view of the outside world and making the room feel much smaller, but it's also a sign that there's too much moisture building up. This excess moisture can lead to the growth of damp and mould, which can pose a serious risk to both you and the structure of your conservatory if left untreated.

Adding roof insulation effectively reduces condensation by regulating the temperature inside the conservatory, preventing the formation of dew points on the windows. This results in clear, moisture-free windows, all year round - even when the temperature outside is in the minuses.
