How to upgrade your conservatory

The UK's climate seems to be getting warmer and drier with every spring and summer. Therefore, it's more important than ever to ensure your conservatory is adequately insulated, comfortable all year round and designed to provide a seamless transition between your home and garden.

Upgrading your conservatory will not only save you money on your energy bills, but it will also make your conservatory more versatile and functional, but there are a few design upgrades to consider.


Insulated Roof

The first step to upgrading your conservatory is ensuring it'sadequately insulated. This will help keep the temperature inside the conservatory more stable and reduce noise levels.

The most popular conservatory upgrade is to replace the existing roof. Roofing technologies for conservatories have advanced significantly over the years, with many energy-efficient options now available – meaning you don't need to start from scratch to get a high-quality insulated roof that makes the room feel like part of your home.


Tiled Conservatory Roofs

The Supalite roof is a lightweight, energy-efficient roofing system that helps to keep your home cooler in summer and warmer in winter, making it a popular choice for conservatory upgrades. The insulated panels reflect heat, keeping your home comfortable throughout all seasons. A Supalite roof consists of high-quality synthetic tiles fixed to an aluminium frame. The result is a tiled conservatory roof that looks and feels just like a traditional tiled roof on a house extension. 


Solar Controlled Glass Roofs

Another alternative is solar-controlled glass. Solar-controlled glass is a special type of glass that reflects sunlight, keeping your conservatory cooler in summer and reducing glare. This means you'll get more out of your conservatory for longer periods during the year because it will stay at a constant temperature. Unlike a full insulated ceiling or tiled roof conversion, a solar-controlled glass conservatory maintains the light inside. It makes the space significantly cooler and pleasurable to spend time in, especially during the summer.

Compared to 25mm polycarbonate or single-plane glass panels, solar-powered glass reduces rainfall and traffic noise considerably.


Insulated Conservatory Ceilings

Conservatory ceiling insulation is an excellent option as it requires no significant structural modifications to the room and can be easily integrated without affecting the height of the ceiling. It can be perfectly matched to the interior of your home and will provide good acoustic and thermal insulation.


Replace the Windows and Doors

Another way to upgrade your conservatory is to replace the windows and doors. Newer models have built-in high-security locks and are much more energy-efficient than older ones, so this will help keep the temperature inside the conservatory more stable and instantly improve your home's appearance and style.Triple glazed windows and doors are also a great option. They are filled with argon gas and have a low-emissivity (Low-E) coating, which helps reflect heat back into the room. This makes them very energy-efficient and will help keep your conservatory cooler in summer and warmer in winter.


With these tips in mind, you can upgrade your conservatory and make it more comfortable to use all year round. You'll also be saving money on your energy bills, which is always a bonus!
