Problem 1: Temperature

One of the most common problems that people find with older glass conservatories is their tendency to be way too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer. Glass is a poor insulator, so it will allow heat to leak out in the winter and too much in during hot summer days. The key to fixing this is insulating your structure.

A solid roof, such as the Guardian Warm Roof, will provide significantly more insulation than a glass roof. In fact, the Guardian Warm Roof is fully energy efficient and achieves a maximum U value of 0.18 W/m2K. This means that the warm air will be kept out in the summer and won’t escape in the winter, thus saving the amount of heat needed to keep the room at ambient temperature.

Problem 2: Brightness

Of course, somedays a room full of sunlight can be gorgeous. However, when you have a glass conservatory, the sunlight can just seem too bright, making the space less enjoyable to be in. However, finding an effective solution for providing some shade when it’s needed can allow you to use the conservatory throughout the day comfortably. Blinds are a cheap and easy solution, but a Guardian Warm Roof can also significantly reduce sun glare and in turn prevent sun bleaching to fixtures and fittings.

Problem 3: Noise

Glass is such a thin material, so therefore it’s not naturally a good barrier to sound. Double or triple glazing can help with any noise, but if you fit them and still find that your conservatory is letting in too much noise, there are further solutions.

Generally, you will find that any solutions you use that work for heat insulation will work for sound too.

Problem 4: Condensation

Another common problem that typically occurs in glass conservatories is condensation, especially during the winter months. Your conservatory will typically be much colder than other rooms in your home and when the cold air circulates into your conservatory, water vapour will find its way into your conservatory with nowhere to go. This builds up, leading to condensation.

One of the simplest solutions, which isn’t necessarily a long term one, is to buy a dehumidifier and then run this for a few hours of the day. However, this will use a lot of electricity and isn’t energy efficient. Adding better ventilation can also help, but the best solution is to improve the insulation properties of the structure. As mentioned above, this can be done by simply adding a Guardian Warm Roof.
