Of course, you will not be the only homeowner with a conservatory in the region who will have to make choices to keep things from heating up. It can be somewhat of a nightmare, as conservatories are usually a place full of activity for family and children.
However, we are here to help. You don’t have to leave your conservatory alone. There are different things that you can do to make your conservatory more usable during the summer heatwaves.
Install Blinds To Block Out the Sun
Depending on where your conservatory is positioned will determine the time of the day that it’s exposed to the sun. A conservatory that faces the east will get sunlight from morning to evening. However, a conservatory facing the west will get late summer evening sunshine.
You should consider installing blinds. That way you can simply close the blinds when the sun is glaring or becoming too much for you. Blinds can be also very aesthetic and can benefit your decor.
Replace Your Glass Roof With a Solid Roof
If your conservatory is becoming warm during the summer. You may want to check your roof. If you have a traditional glass roof or polycarbonate conservatory roof. These can become very hot during the summer months and cause a greenhouse effect.
With the correct planning permissions, you can now replace your existing conservatory roof with a solid roof. A very stylish covering that will also benefit you during the winter months when it’s colder. A solid roof will help to keep the heat out during the summer and keep the heat in during the winter.
Solid roofs can be bespoke designed to suit all types of conservatory styles and designs. Solid roofs can be designed with traditional styled tiling or slates for the perfect look.
Add Patio, Bi-folding Doors or French Doors
While installing a solid roof will help to keep the conservatory interior cool. You won’t refuse to add some more ventilation if with have a very hot summer.
You can increase ventilation by adding patio doors, bi-folding doors and french doors to your conservatory. Push the doors open or slide them to let all the fresh air enter your home. Allowing this fresh air to enter your conservatory and home will help to prevent the conservatory from becoming too hot during heat waves.
