How To Heat Your Conservatory Effectively In Winter


Conservatory owners should be very excited about the prospect of utilising their home extension over the festive and New Year periods, but they won’t be if it provides insufficient thermal efficiency.

Brick Conservatory Internal View of Garden

Thousands of old conservatories are left unoccupied at this time of year because as temperatures drop outside, so does the internal temperature within ageing conservatory designs built using traditional methods.  

It’s literally a waste of space; however, all is not lost!

You can generate warmth inside and make it come alive again in winter with our top three heating tips:

  1. Fit some blinds

The draughts that force their way into your conservatory can be partially blocked off with a set of conservatory blinds.

Blinds come in various colours, materials and styles, including Venetian blinds, roller blinds, Roman blinds, vertical blinds and pleated blinds.

Measure up carefully beforehand so that they perfectly cover the entire span of the windows /doors and draw them once it starts to go dark. They’ll also give you added privacy when you want it.

  1. Lay down floor coverings

Many of us walk around the house in just a pair of socks or our bare feet. The cold sensation you experience on your feet when venturing into a conservatory will give your whole body that chilly feel.

If you have a cold floor you be well advised to put down some thick rugs or mats to give you more warmth under foot.

Don’t be afraid to experiment and buy a rug or mat with an expressive colour (we’re thinking reds, greens and blues) to generate further warmth inside the structure.

  1. Install a solid roof

A lot of the heat lost from your conservatory will be exiting upwards through the current roof covering. A new roofing system can be retrospectively fitted to your conservatory in place of your existing roof.

Developed using lightweight slates / tiles, a solid roof promises exceptional thermal performance and can usually be fitted within a day or two.

You get a considerable say in the design as you’re able to choose an appropriate finish and determine whether you want add-ons such as roof windows or spotlights integrated into it.
