Condensation is created when warm air has contacted a cold surface and forms droplets of liquid.
Many of our daily chores and activities can produce condensation within a conservatory.
For example, some conservatory owners will use the room as a utility room. The extra space is perfect to hang your clothes to dry, but the moisture will be contained within the room and cause condensation on walls and windows. Condensation can also be caused by washing up, cooking or by having worn out old single glazed windows.
A lot of conservatory owners invest in blinds to keep light out in the summer and heat in during the winter, but this can cause more problems than it’s worth. Blinds form as a cover to the window, but any condensation caused, is trapped between the window and the blind, producing more and potentially creating mould. If leftover a long period of time, it can be a serious issue for your health.
Within every room, you need to ensure there is ventilation. By opening windows and doors ajar, and putting the heating on, the air within your conservatory able to move around the room. The issue with this is that you’re wasting money and energy, but if you don’t ventilate your conservatory, the water moisture and water vapour builds up and can be damaging to your health, over a long period of time.
Homeowners tend to install extractor fans in rooms which produce the most water vapour such as bathrooms and kitchen. This is great if your conservatory is connected to the kitchen or has been transformed into a bedroom with an ensuite bathroom. But it can also be VERY noisy!
You really need to consider a more substantial, long-term solution. By changing your conservatory roof from solid to glass, you are reducing the amount of water vapour within the room, and in turn, less condensation will form.
By changing your current conservatory roof from glass to insulated panels you regulate the temperature within the room making it a room to enjoy all year round. Greenspace UK measure your current conservatory panels and work with you to choose your colour and design fitting to your current framework and style. Once made, the installation team will fit your new panels within one day, to ensure your life can continue with minimal disruption.
