Conservatories can be a cold place during winter, so what can you do to help improve heat retention during the cold months? Read on to find out…

Invest in glazing
Obviously glass doesn’t provide the best insulation against the cold weather, so first and foremost it is important that you invest in some triple-glazing for your windows. It can be expensive replacing all the glass in your conservatory but there are a range of available options to choose from when it comes to glazing.

Reducing draughts
Investing in some quality draught-proofing will help tremendously in retaining heat in your conservatory

Fitting blinds
Investing in blinds can also help retain heat. On sunnier days they can be opened to allow sunlight in and close on colder winter days while having the radiators on to maximise the heat.

Insulating the roof
A lot of older conservatories are made from polycarbonate. This unfortunately this type of material doesn’t provide much in the way of insulation. Although expensive, there are few different options worth investing in that will both help retain heat and improve the aesthetic of your conservatory.

These are just a few quick tips to help with the warmth of your conservatory, with a little bit or research and investment you can help transform it into a winter-friendly area of your home.
