Three Ways to Keep Your Conservatory Warm This Winter06/11/2015
There have been many improvements in glass technology over the years, to the point where all of the windows in our conservatories are double-glazed and feature a layer of argon gas between each pane of glass. This ensures that heat is retained more effectively than was the case with older single and double glazed conservatories.
Nevertheless, by its very nature, glass will never have the insulation quality of bricks and mortar. All conservatories will lose their heat faster than other rooms in the house - but there are a few tricks to help minimise that heat loss and stay warm in your conservatory this winter, including:
- Blocking any draughts
- Dressing your windows
- Turn on the heating
Ensure that all entrances and exits are fitted with proper seals - if you are into arts and crafts, why not have a go at making this sausage dog draught excluder that will add a bit of vintage style to the room.
Remember that curtains, blinds and shades don’t just keep the light out - they also keep the heat in. We gave you all the facts you need to make an informed choice in this matter a couple of weeks ago. You may want to fit blinds to the interior of the glass roof as well.
If you need to warm the room quickly, consider investing in a plug-in electric heater. The modern electric heater bears little relation to its ancestor, the fan heater and are ecologically sound, silent and economic.
