So, what exactly are the facts?
Approximately 95% of each panel is made up of high efficiency condensed insulation. The insulation is encased between two layers of powder-coated and baked aluminium. The concept is beautifully simple.
The transparent quality of glass and polycarbonate panels intensify the flow of heat in and out of your conservatory roof. With our panels, the insulation is intended to do the opposite – it helps to RESTRICT the flow of heat in and out of your conservatory roof.
Let’s simplify it further:
On a hot day the panels will restrict the flow of heat into your conservatory through the roof, and the room should therefore be cooler than it would with polycarbonate or glass panels.
On a cold day the panels will restrict the flow of heat out of your conservatory through the roof, and the room should therefore be warmer than it would with polycarbonate or glass panels.
Again, it is important to note that, whilst the panels are highly efficient at doing what they are designed to do (restrict heat flow through the roof), they are not magical and will not instantly make your conservatory COLD on a hot day or HOT on a cold day – at least not by themselves.
To allow the panels to work efficiently, they need a little help and you should be treating the room like any other room in the house. This means that you should still be opening windows and allowing air flow through the room in the summer, and you should still be heating the room in the winter. The panels will allow these common methods of temperature control to be much more effective in comparison to polycarbonate or glass.
