During the summer months, a conservatory can be seen as an extension of the garden. The beautiful weather can make a conservatory into a garden room. Unfortunately, the summer sunshine can also make it roasting hot.
Polycarbonate and glazed conservatory roofs can leave conservatories exposed to the summer elements. In effect, many conservatories become an extra greenhouse.
There are a few things you can try to make a conservatory cooler in summer but these often aren’t effective.
- You can open the windows, but often this makes little difference and isn’t advised when you are out of the house.
- Blinds have been used by many suffering conservatory owners. They do help to reduce the glare but in reality, they don’t help to stop the heating from coming in.
- Tinted glass or blue glass conservatory roofs receive mixed reviews. Many of our customers have replaced theirs as they have made little difference to the temperature.
- An air conditioning unit can be a costly fix, but isn’t very eco-friendly and can be noisy.
- In our opinion, the only way to permanently solve the issue and make your conservatory cooler is with a solid, insulated conservatory roof.
