How to prepare your conservatory for the winter

As the weather begins to change again, we begin to lose touch with our conservatories. They become a cold area that is generally avoided by most.

If you’re one of those people with the super cold conservatories, here are some things you can do to prevent this and make your conservatory useful all year round.

Double Glazing

If your conservatory doesn’t have double glazing you are seriously missing out. Double glazing not only keeps you conservatory warm in the winter and cool in the summer, it also blocks out noise. This means you’ll have a warm conservatory where you can relax in peace!

Reduce Draught

If there is a breeze running through the house and you suspect it be from your conservatory, it’s time to get that looked at. Make sure all your windows and doors have efficient draught-proofing.

When getting a new conservatory, always make sure you use the best company that you’ll trust to get it right.

Blinds, Curtains, Blankets etc.

Make your conservatory cosy with the addition of blinds, curtains and a range of blankets and cushions. If you have a hard floor a rug won’t go a miss! These all help retain heat, especially if you have radiators in your conservatory.

Is your roof letting you down?

If your conservatory is relatively old it may not be fitted with the best kind of roofing for the job. Many options nowadays include the Livinroof, which features a insulated roof that has large windows fitted within it – this is the best option you can go for. Get in touch with a conservatory provider and ask them about the options available for replacing the current roof of your conservatory.
