How to cool down your conservatory

Golden oak effect uPVC Victorian conservatoryThe record summer of 2018 saw temperatures frequently reaching 30°C throughout the country. Heatwaves were a gift for some, but a nightmare for others.

No matter how you feel about these conditions, it’s good to prepare your home for the warmer conditions many experts are predicting for the years to come.

Older conservatories throughout Bolton are notorious for their sweltering conditions in these higher temperatures, making this incredible living space almost unbearable. Don’t worry, we’ve put together a few steps you can take to solve this problem.

Add blinds to your conservatory

Direct sunlight often causes the temperature to rise and can even fade furniture in a conservatory.

You won’t need to worry about these problems when investing in blinds. Not only will blinds give you protection from the sun’s powerful rays, but you’ll feel the difference in winter too. Close them in the colder months to retain warmth, maintaining a more pleasant temperature year-round.

Focus on ventilation

This is a basic step that offers effective results. Draughts cause chaos in the winter months, especially when old windows and doors let you down. Opening windows and doors on both sides of your home in summer will let cool air ventilate throughout your home.

A portable fan or air conditioning unit is also a good investment to control the room’s temperature. It may seem tempting to go for the cheapest model, but these entry-level models aren’t very energy efficient and will often cost you more in the long run.

Advancements and design improvements over the years have drastically improved the quality of conservatories. Older conservatories generally feature polycarbonate or rickety tiled roofs that are boiling in the summer and Baltic in the winter months.

Plan-It Windows provides an ultra-thermally efficient lightweight tiled roof system that could radically improve the conditions of your conservatory. With a life expectancy of 60 years, this roof system is guaranteed to last and breathe new life into your conservatory. It comes in a variety of colours to match your existing roof or personal preference.
