Will Insulating my Conservatory Roof Cause Condensation
09.05.2021

It's a question we're often asked, especially by people who are currently facing some condensation issues. We get it; the last thing you need is to worsen condensation by retaining more warm air inside the room; however, you will actively prevent condensation from occurring with a correctly installed insulated conservatory roof.

 

Insulation will not make your conservatory more humid

You're able to minimise any chances of condensation or mould growth by keeping a constant temperature on your roof, whilst it's always advised (in any room) to improve the ventilation by keeping windows open for a couple of hours, thus allowing better air circulation.

 

How does condensation occur?

Condensation can be a significant problem in traditional conservatories. Unfortunately, it is not always easy to identify the source of the condensation, so if you are currently having issues with an old-style glass or polycarbonate conservatory roof, there may be a combination of factors at play, such as high humidity levels, cold surfaces and poor ventilation.

Condensation occurs when cold and warm air meets and condenses (also known as the dew point). Warm air is more buoyant, yet cold air carries more water vapour. If the air cannot hold the water vapour and the warm air comes into contact with a cold surface, like a conservatory window, the moisture turns to water droplets and produces condensation. With an insulated conservatory roof, you're able to prevent overheating in the summer and retain heat during the winter, so you get the best of both worlds. Furthermore, you can reduce common condensation issue since the inside of the windows will have a higher temperature.

 

Transform your outdated conservatory

When you think about what's most important in your life, one of the first things that come to mind is likely your family. You want them to be as happy and healthy as possible, so it makes sense that you might want a conservatory that's comfortable all year round and adds value to your home whilst bringing you and the family more joy. The good news is that you don't have to start from scratch with a conservatory rebuilt from the ground up. With an insulated conservatory roof, you can elevate energy efficiency, lower utility bills and remove annoying glare from the sun, whilst the room will finally feel like it belongs in your home, pairing perfectly with adjoining rooms such as kitchens, dining rooms and living areas. You also gain the following benefits:

  • Retains heat in the winter (a heat loss saving of up to 90%)
  • Significantly less noise when it rains.
  • Minimal loss of ceiling height.
  • No change to the interior space.
  • Immediately adds to the resale value of your home.
